After picking fresh raspberries and strawberries the other day, I was looking for a nice dessert to use them in for company. I decided on sweet crepes, always a crowd pleaser, and pretty easy to make. It always fun to set up lots of different toppings so everyone can make one with all their favourites.

Sweet Crepes
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Additional Time 30 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup lukewarm water
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 pinch salt

Instructions

    1. Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor, process until smooth. Let stand for 30 minutes before cooking, or cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
    2. In a small non-stick frying pan, melt a little butter over medium heat. Pour a little batter into the pan and then quickly swirl the pan to coat the bottom in a thin layer of batter.
    3. Cook a few minutes until crepe bubbles and bottom is lightly browned. Flip crepe with spatula corner or fingers. (This takes a little practice, but you can eat any that don’t turn out) 😉 Cook on the other side until browned slightly. Makes about 12, and the recipe can be doubled for a bigger crowd.

how to cook crepes

Cooking crepes is sometimes a little tricky.  The first one nearly never turns out.  But once you get in a rhythm you can cook them quickly and easily.

Sweet Crepe Dessert Buffet

I set up a buffet with our fresh raspberries and strawberries, chocolate and vanilla ice cream, maple syrup and chocolate sauce, vanilla custard and whip cream. I even cheated and used canned custard, but don’t tell anyone. 😉

crepes with chocolate ice cream

There was a chocolate with more chocolate option for the chocolate lovers. My personal favourite combination was fresh raspberries, vanilla custard, whipped cream, and maple syrup. What can I say, I’m a vanilla girl.

These are always a hit, and I highly recommend them for a little summer get together. The guests are always impressed, and love that they can build their own with all their favourite toppings.

  1. How did the buffet set-up work out? I’m hosting my first crepes party next weekend, and I’m open to any tips you may have. 🙂

  2. The buffet worked out great, everyone gets to come up with their own favourite combinations of toppings. I did do a really large group buffet with them once -like about 35 people. I made the crepes ahead of time, in chocolate and vanilla, and just re-warmed in the microwave before serving and it worked out great too.
    Good Luck!
