For me, Sunday Brunch type crepes are named for the day. After all. They are more like a “sundae” Don’t you agree?
In the beginning I was so hesitant to try to make crepes. I figured those were the talk of expensive meals that only a true chef could pull off.
I had gotten a crepe pan from what would become my Dad’s new wife. I thought she was testing me to see if I would invite her to lunch.
So of course I had to practice a few times. It is easy to make the crepes. It is a lot like the pancake technique.
And the fun part is deciding what to put in them or on top of them.
My family love all the ways I have created.
They aren’t as heavy as pancakes but you can still fill them with such sweet goodness!
Custard is a great addition. Top them with nutella, whipped cream, chocolate, caramel, pecans and strawberries.
After all you need your daily allowance of fruit.
I first had these delicious crepes at a local restaurant and wanted to add them to my recipe file.
They are very light and a snap to make. With this being National Strawberry Week, I decided to present them to you!
The crepes are light with a cream cheese filling.
The peach sauce adds a unique flavor to the crepe. Topped with strawberry and whip cream the flavors all compliment each other.
When I served these crepes to my family they were all impressed. They raved about the unexpected flavor of the peach sauce.
The cream cheese filling was so easy to make. I just added some vanilla to the cream cheese and mixed in a tub of cool whip.
I made sure to lick the bowl! I never turn down cream cheese.
The strawberries were very fresh which added some texture to the crepe.
I will definitely have these on the menu for the next holiday! I hope you get a chance to enjoy these Strawberry Crepes and the Peach Sauce.
Looking in the pantry I found three jars of Nutella which I don’t remember buying.
Can you believe THAT?!
Not like me at all.
Being Sunday I decided to make some crepes as a treat.
Nutella and bananas seemed like the most fitting filling for us, but there are SO many options you can try.
I have made crepes with Strawberries & whipped cream, peanut butter & chocolate chips, marshmallow creme with graham crumbs & chocolate and baked apples & cinnamon. I am sure there are more.
What can I use as egg substitutes for baking? That is a very good question! In this time of COVID-19 it is hard to find all the ingredients you need to make a recipe. It’s time to improvise. Knowing these expert egg substitutes and they act in different recipes is key to success.
Although adding eggs may give your dish a different taste, texture or look, it does not mean that you can’t have that dish.
Here is a list which comes in handy for me while I am making such a recipe.
Nothing is better than homemade from your own kitchen. Pumpkin Spice has unlimited uses as you can think of.
This homemade spice is even better than store bought. It adds a special flavor to all your pumpkin recipes.
