These Raspberry Vanilla Cream Crepes make the perfect dessert for Valentine’s Day or any time you want to impress that someone special. The crepes have a creamy vanilla filling and the fresh raspberries add a pop of color.
Have you ever made crepes? Are you maybe a bit intimidated thinking they are so hard to do? Well, if so, I totally get it. I used to be one of those. I love crepes and thought there was no way I could have them turn out as well as I’ve had them. But I was wrong, way wrong. Once you give them a try, you’ll be whipping them up often.
Making crepes are like making a version of pancakes. The batter is just thinner and you need to swirl it in a hot saute pan, flip ’em, remove ’em and then load them up as in these raspberry vanilla cream crepes. You can also fill them with about anything you want. I’ve made them with lemon curd and apples with caramel. Next up I want to try a savory one. This past July I was in Las Vegas having breakfast at Mon Ami Gabi and enjoyed an egg, bacon and cheese crepe. It was delicious! Be sure to stop by if you are ever in the area.
If you want, you could make the crepes earlier in the day, cover them and store in a refrigerator. The filling could also be made ahead and just assembled when you are ready to serve. I won’t recommend keeping them longer than a day (or overnight) as they seem to get a big doughy when left that long. I don’t own an official crepe pan so I use my 10″ non-stick skillet and it works just fine. I went to our local kitchen store today to try and buy one but at $129 (it was a Le Creuset), I decided to pass! I’ll just keep using my skillet.
I hope you enjoy these raspberry vanilla cream crepes and shoot me a message if you need any help!
Powdered sugar is a good idea too.
Use fresh berries!
