Simple Crepes with Cheese Filling

crepes

Velvety soft crepes. Smooth, rich cream cheese filling. Topped with your favorite homemade jam. This is the ultimate breakfast.

Move over pancakes. Crepes are taking over. And I am 1000% okay with that. 

Crepes are softer and thinner. That means I can devour them to my heart’s content. This is why crepes win.

But here’s the thing. Even if pancakes are your favorite breakfast food (or dinner food – no judgment here), you’ll love these homemade crepes. They’re made from delicious ingredients and are perfectly textured. They pair wonderfully with the cream cheese filling. It’s a no-nonsense recipe – you’ll be so glad you tried it.

The Ingredients:

  • Eggs. And lots of ‘em too. Eggs give the crepes their fluffiness and airy texture. Yes, they’re thin, but they don’t lack in “fluff.”

  • Sugar. For the sweetness of course.

  • Vanilla. A splash. You don’t want bland crepes now, do you?

  • Melted butter. It makes everything so much better. 

  • Flour. To bulk up your batter. 

Once you combine your ingredients you’re ready to make those crepes. You’re going to have to be fast because these babies can burn quickly. Spread your batter thinly with a ladle, wait a few seconds to see a light golden color, and flip!

Now on to good stuff: the filling. This filling is made from farmer’s cheese, cream cheese, and 1 can of sweetened condensed milk. You’re going to spread this mixture all over your crepe and roll. 

Before serving, you’ll pop these crepes into the oven for 40 minutes. This helps cook the cheese mixture and really brings everything together.

I really hope you try these filled crepes! This holiday season is the perfect time to serve up this beautiful breakfast!

Directions for Crepes:

  • Start making crepes. I use a nonstick crepe pan, if you don’t have one you can use a regular nonstick pan (I got at bedbathandbeyond) ; if crepes start to stick to the pan spread a bit of butter before adding the batter. Pan should be hot.
  • When adding batter, hold pan in left hand, with a soup ladle add batter to the pan and quickly turn so all the batter is spread over the pan, put on heat and wait until crepe starts to turn a light brown color, flip over crepe. This will be fast! (Don’t burn the crepes!)
