Blueberry Bavarian Cream Filled Crepe Recipe

Tuesday, January 1, 2013
This is a great way to start off your day with breakfast or brunch it's a little work, but crepes are fun to make and very rewarding.

There are many alternatives you can substitute for crepes with it comes to fruits and fillings, this Bavarian cream fill is one of our favorites..

The crepes are made first, then the filling is topped with fruits and dusted with powdered sugar.

Crepes are a showstopper to serve guests and really impress whomever you're making them for besides being delicious!

Tips for Making Crepe Batter (thin pancakes)

  1. make sure the pan is nonstick and heated before adding the first crepe
  2. use a cooking oil spray for easy release of the crepe
  3. fill crepe just before serving
  4. if making all egg crepes these need to be served immediately the flour style can be made and stacked between wax paper until ready to fill
  5. crepes with flour can be made and frozen between parchment paper and thawed in the refrigerator

Garnish Suggestions for Crepes:

  • strawberries fresh on each end or substitute another fruit
  • any kinds of fresh berries or fruit you like even maraschino cherries
  • mini chocolate chips on each end
  • amaretti crushed cookies
  • pistachios crushed
  • toasted almonds
  • colorful sprinkles
  • chopped covered almonds
  • crushed chocolate chip cookies
  • drizzle the top with melted hot fudge
  • add orange or lemon zest to the filling
  • chopped red and green cherries
