Breakfast Crepes


One of my favorite summer breakfasts is fruit crepes. They're healthful, delicious, and easy to make.

To make the crepes, I just throw a cup of flour, 2 eggs, a cup of skim milk, a dash of salt, and 2 tablespoons of melted butter into a blender and blend them until they are well mixed. Then I spray a small skillet with cooking oil.  I heat the skillet to a medium-high heat.   Then I pour about 1/4 to 1/3 cup of batter into the skillet and swirl the batter so that it covers the bottom of the pan.  I cook the crepe until the sides start to curl up, flip it over, and cook it for about 30 more seconds.  I place the cooked crepes on a large dinner plate and cover it with a kitchen towel to keep the crepes warm until I finish making all the crepes.

I make the filling by sweetening some yogurt with stevia powder or honey. Sometimes I add other favorings like high quality flavored balsamic vinegars or spices. I added cinnamon and blueberry balsamic vinegar to the filling in the crepes that I made this weekend. I fill and top the crepes with the filling and fresh fruit. I used mango and blueberries in the crepe shown above.

  1. Hi Katie. Those look delicious. I have never thought of using balsamic vinegar in a sweet crepe, but it bet it makes for a yummy filling. Would you consider posting your recipe on my breakfast crepe page? If so, I'll happily post a link back to your blog. Good luck with the gardening--I bet your pups are a big help! Ashley

  2. Somehow I've always thought that crepes were much harder to make than pancakes, but you make it sound really easy and delicious. I will have to try this next weekend. Thanks for the idea!
