Creamy Lemon Blueberry Crepes

These Creamy Lemon Blueberry Crepes are a wonderful way to start any day! Homemade crepes have never been more easy or delicious!

Creamy Lemon Blueberry Crepes

Over the last few weeks my family has been Crepe crazy. I’ve been making crepes of all kinds sweet and savory. I must say, out of all the crepe recipes I’ve been testing, this one has been our favorite!

Here’s another perfect Mother’s Day Brunch recipe for you where I use the beautiful pink KitchenAid Blender to help make my crepes. Be sure to check out KitchenAid and Cook For The Cure for a wonderful cause!

Now, if you have never attempted to make your own crepes, do not panic, they take a little practice swirling your pan, but once you get it, you are whipping up crepes in no time at all. I use an inexpensive crepe pan with a very shallow rim that makes it nice and easy to flip your crepes, but I have certainly made crepes in a regular skillet as well. So no worries!

Alright, let’s take a look.

How to Make French Crepes

I prepare my crepe batter in my blender, which takes a whole 15 seconds. It’s wonderful! Stay tuned for Friday’s Giveaway where you can win a gorgeous Pink KitchenAid Blender of your own!!

So the trick with making crepes is as soon as you pour your batter into your hot skillet, you swirl it around so your crepe is thin and round like picture 1 on the left. It takes a little practice, but I assure you it’s very easy once you’ve got the hang of it! After about 30 seconds to 1 minute, you flip to cook both sides.

The whole stack of crepes takes about 10 minutes. Yippee!

Let’s start the blueberry sauce. Take 1 cup of beautiful fresh or frozen blueberries and place them into a small saucepan.

 

You’ll add some sugar, cornstarch and lemon juice.

Cook and stir until you get a bubbly thick, sweet gorgeous sauce like this.

Time for the lemon cream. You simply stir together equal parts cream cheese and prepared lemon curd. You can usually find lemon curd at your grocery store, but I gave you a link just in case. I will be spreading this combo on everything now. It’s tart, sweet and irresistible ๐Ÿ™‚

Let’s layer our crepes with a thin layer of lemon cream then top with a small spoon of blueberry sauce.

Roll em’ up then go grab some powdered sugar to make it look pretty and fancy.

Dust with powdered sugar using a small strainer (or your fingers if you don’t have one) and voila’! How gorgeous and simple is this?! Love it.

    I’ve used pancake mix cold watered down and a couple of Tbs. of melted butter and it works great. Even better if you can refrigerate it for 20 minutes. We make a version with vanilla non fat yogurt, but counter that with a bit of whip cream on top and lemon zest sprinkled on top.

  2. My family all the time say that I am wasting my
    time here at net, however I know I am getting familiarity everyday by reading such nice articles or
    reviews.

    Made these today following the recipe but batter was very thick. Batter should be consistency of heavy cream but was coming out like cake batter. I modified by adding a 2nd egg and another 1/4 cup of milk.and it came out just right.

    These look amazing! Never tried making crepes but I’ve always wanted to so I’ll be making these for all the moms in my life this weekend. One question, though: I’m not a huge fan of blueberries so I bought strawberries. Can I sub them in the sauce?

  5. Kim

    We have been crepe fanatics for years. The look great. Will you share a savory crepe recipe? I have never been brave enough to try one. And haven’t really found much in the way of savory recpes.

  6. love the flavors of blueberry and lemon together!! so refreshing and i haven’t made crepes myself before but i really should ๐Ÿ™‚ especially with my new pink KA blender! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. Kristen Mattern

    I love crepes! I like your filling. What a smart idea to combine cream cheese and lemon curd. I definitely will be trying these out soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. My mom requested Swedish pancakes for Mother’s day breakfast so this is what we were making, but I was going to fill them with strawberries, and now I’m going to surprise her with this combination. It looks amazing!

    Does anybody know if crepes work with cast iron or stainless steel pans? I don’t have a nonstick pan, and I’m assuming that’s what you used here.

    1. Kim

      I always use a stainless steel pan. Just make sure you spray with oil before every single crepe or you will end up with scrambled crepes! I don’t use non stick because the coating flakes off in your food. Growing up we always used the cast iron for making crepes and it works fine too. Just remember the handle gets hot so use a hot pad. And it is heavy so I prefer the stainless steel.

  10. Jennifer

    I just might have to make these for the fiance this weekend! I have always been intimidated by crepes but you make them look easier!

  11. My mouth is salivating just looking at the pictures! I’ve attempted crepes once before and it was an epic fail–might need to give these another try!

  12. These look great! Next to chocolate & peanut butter, I think that lemon & blueberry is the next best combination of flavors. So tasty! ๐Ÿ˜€ I hope baby Picky Palate is treating you right…I would hope so, especially after downing some of these! ๐Ÿ˜‰
