However, there are those occasions when something indulgent and special should be offered, especially for days like birthdays, anniversaries, or holidays.
Decadent Strawberry Cream Cheese Breakfast Crepes Recipe
- Medium-Sized Bowl
- Electric Mixer
- Potato Masher
- Large bowl
- Wire whisk
- Small Pitcher
- 1 cup Flour
- 1 cup Milk
- 1/2 cup Water
- 4 pcs Eggs
- 8 tbsp Melted Butter about 4 tablespoons of it is for frying the crepes in the skillet
- 1/2 teaspoon Salt
- 2 tbsp Sugar
- 1 block Eight-Ounce Cream Cheese at room temperature
- 2 cups Powdered Sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon Salt
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla
Fruit Sauce Ingredients
- 2 cups Strawberries washed and capped
- 1/4 cup Sugar
- Powdered Sugar for Garnish
- Before you begin making the crepes, you should first create the crepe filling and the fruit sauce.
- To create the cream cheese filling, in a medium-sized bowl, beat the cream cheese filling with an electric mixer until smooth.
- Add the powdered sugar a little at a time, beating until smooth.
- Add the salt and vanilla, beating until they are fully incorporated. Set the filling aside.
- To make the fruit sauce, slice the berries into bite-sized pieces.
- Using a potato masher or a stick blender, squash about half of the berries to create the sauce.
- Stir in the sugar until dissolved and add the rest of the berries. Set the fruit sauce aside.
- Now, onto the crepes. Before you start, melt about half a tablespoon of butter in a non-stick or well-seasoned cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat.
- As you wait for the butter to melt, mix together your crepe batter.
- Measure the flour, sugar, and salt into a large mixing bowl.
- Add the milk and water and whisk together.
- Add the eggs, one at a time, whisking after each addition.
- Finally, add the butter and mix it all together. If your mixing bowl doesn’t have a pouring lip, you might be better off to transfer the batter to a small pitcher.
- By now the butter should be melted. Swirl the skillet to make sure that the butter covers the entire surface of the pan.
- Let it cook a few moments more until the butter is slightly golden brown in color.
- Pour enough batter into the pan to cover about half of the surface of the pan.
- Tilt the pan so the batter can run all over the bottom of the skillet and cover the bottom of the skillet completely.
- Cook the crepe until it is bubbly and lightly browned around the edges.
- Remove the pan from the heat while you turn the crepe. Using a spatula, run the edge of the spatula all around the edge of the crepe, lifting it slightly.
- Slip the spatula underneath the crepe and with a quick flip of the wrist, turn the crepe over to allow the backside to cook.
- Return the pan to the heat and allow it to cook until it is lightly browned on the backside.
- Slide the crepe onto a plate. Use wax paper between the crepes to keep them from sticking together.
- Repeat until you’ve used all the batter.
- To assemble the dish, place a single crepe onto a serving plate.
- Spread it all over with a thin layer of cream cheese filling.
- Down the center of the crepe, place about 1/4 cup of the strawberry sauce.
- Fold the edges of the crepe toward the middle over top of the strawberries and the filling. This will make a kind of burrito with the crepe.
- Add some strawberries to the top and a little powdered sugar as a garnish. Serve.
