Vanilla Crepes

Like a week ago I found an AWESOME crepe recipe, 
I had never made them before & I've heard that they can be a bit difficult to make, 
but this recipe was great & made it super simple! 

It seems like I'm making these every night for Lee & I's 'little snack' after dinner- 
their super easy and so yummy, {maybe not TOO healthy though... but hey, at least I use raw organic sugar!}

Basically all you do is mix a few BASIC ingredients and you're done. 

The recipe I found, she used a warm red raspberry compote filling. 
Which looks so good, but when I went to pick up some red raspberries, there were none.
 I guess there not quite in season yet?? 
So I just used Blackberries. But you can totally use anything you want for the filling. 
Basically for the filling, you just put the fruit, in my case blackberries, in a pan turned on low with butter, a little sugar and lemon juice if you want. The filling is so yummy! 

I made Lee a banana one the other night... {his request... it sounded yucky to me ;) } 
He thought it was pretty good.
 But lately he's been putting a little lunch meat in his or just eating it plain. 

One thing I need to work on is getting my crepe a little bit thinner.
Mine seems rather thick... {it's not supposed to be like a pancake} Ha

Also, this recipe calls for two teaspoons of vanilla {hence the title, vanilla crepes}
I loved incorporating vanilla into these! It's such a unique yummy taste for a crepe!

obviously my pics aren't too spectacular... photography is still on my list of things to work on! ;)

I'm excited to try these with red raspberries... but the blackberries are delish too!

Happy crepe making! ;) 


  1. Happy belated birthday!

    The raspberry compote sounds DELICIOUS...I've never tried that before, but will certainly give it a go soon.

    When I make crepes, I always sort of role the skillet with my wrist so that the batter coats the entire bottom of the pan. Once I see a few bubbles rising up on the exposed side, I flip...They generally turn out pretty thin. ;-) Lee sounds like Nick in the whole let me fill this delicious crepe with MEAT thing. lol.

  2. Thank you! :)
    I know- I am super excited to try the red raspberries!
    What size pan do you use?? Yeah... I'll try to do the rolling thing so that it coats the entire pan.
    And seriously! I don't understand those boys.... how could you pick meat filling over FRESH FRUIT?!

  3. All I can say is yum. I gotta get me some. =D
