Fresh Strawberry Crepes

Pin It PIN IT!

We spent the day in Mexico yesterday with the huevos and today we’re going all the way to Parie Parie to enjoy these super fluffy fresh strawberry crepes! Whenever I think of crepes, I think of this, and DON’T TELL ME YOU DON’T EITHER.


“I had a whole mess of crepes this morning!” One of best movies of our generation, I’ll argue. Before I start quoting the entire movie to y’all, let’s quickly move back to the topic of crepes. I love them, so much. I love them ALMOST as much as I love buttermilk pancakes. It’s a tight tie. I mean, they are pancake’s fancy French cousin who sips champagne instead of beer and spends the weekend at the opera, not the bar. You know?

Looking at this light, beautiful stack of crepes makes my heart ACHE for Paris again. Have you ever been to a city that just completely and utterly stole your heart and soul? For me, that’s Paris. And besides eating onion soup everyday, I also frequented the creperie stands for Nutella banana crepes and let me tell you, MY LIFE IS CHANGED FOREVER. I’ve attempted my own version of that Paris favorite and they always end up tasting salty. Probably because I sob hysterically into them while I eat them because I miss Paris so much. They taste more like broken dreams than fresh nutella crepes.

So, in the meantime to satisfy my crepe craving, I made a simple stack with freshly whipped cream and strawberries.

These make the perfect companion to a big pitcher of mimosas for your mom this Mother’s Day. And you know what? Crepes are EASY to make! I feel like they get a bad rap, probably because people aren’t making them the right way. You have to whisk the batter so they are fluffy and use a container with a spout (like a small pitcher) to pour the batter into the skillet. Then it’s just all about timing.

So, who is coming over for crepes this morning? Because you better believe I’m making them. I promise I won’t cry into yours though, just mine.

    I loooove crepes but have never tried making them myself. I always assumed they were super duper difficult to make, even though friends have told me otherwise. Might be time to finally give them a try!

    This looks gorgeous! I am heading to Paris in less than two weeks and couldn't be more excited! Between crusty bread, croissants, and crepes I am ready to be in carb-heaven.

    Magnifiques vos crêpes!!...Bravo!..I live in France... and yours resemble very much the authentic version (albeit yours are a bit family likes them wafer-thin or they frown and describe them as "ratés"...) I approve so much of your strawberry and chantilly pairing..especially at this time of Spring! My tribu prefers to slather them with crème de marrons or Nutella! My beau-père likes the traditional way..simply sprinkled with sucre roux/cassonade. Personally, I have two favorite versions...fraises & chantilly in spring/summer...and when the weather gets cool...I like them with a good, homemade orange marmelade...then lit on fire with Grand Marnier!..Crêpes Suzette is much like this last version...but with much butter involved!

    Thank you for your great writing and sharing of your culinary acumen. Exquisite blog...always. Merci bien et très bonne journée.

    You know, I've never made homemade crepes before! There is a cute little crepes place in town that usually fills my craving. These look irresistible!

    The kids and I love crepes, and every time I see a new crepe recipe I make it. This is going to be a nice after school snack! :)

    These are gorgeous, Claire! So thin but fluffy at the same time! I love the big scoop of cream on top, too. Great recipe!

    I love crepes! I never made them myself but I definitely want to give a try now. I'm just so worried that they'll come out so chewy and thick!
