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 🙂
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.

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?
Does the melted butter go in the crepe batter??
LOVE the lemon curd mixed with the cream cheese! I have been lemon curd obsessed lately, and this sounds fantastic.
My goodness, what stunning pictures! They are some of your best!
Cream cheese and lemon curd? Girl, you are a genius – these look absolutely perfect.
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.
D: SOUNDS SO GOOD!! i love lemons, blueberries, and crepes!
I love blueberry-lemon anything and I’m sure I’d love these crepes! They look perfect, Jenny!

I love crepes!! This looks so awesome!
These crepes look so pretty! I have never even thought about mixing the batter in a blender! DUH, Stephanie! lol
I love love love crepes! I haven’t made them in YEARS but I’ll keep this recipe bookmarked. Blueberry and lemon are my favorite fruity combo!
love the flavors of blueberry and lemon together!! so refreshing and i haven’t made crepes myself before but i really should 🙂 especially with my new pink KA blender! 😉
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. 🙂
Gorgeous crepes, Jenny! I bet the blueberry & lemon filling was just heavenly. I could eat that blueberry sauce by the spoonful 🙂
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!
Oh what I wouldn’t give to have someone make me a batch of those right now!! Yum yum!
These looks divine!
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.
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.
Any type of crepe is great. Thanks for the recipe!
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!
Boy, how I wish these were my breakfast this morning, not the boring bowl of cereal I actually had!
This looks delicious! I’m always up for a new kind of crepe.
I have always wanted to make crepes…I have always been a little scared because I am the wold’s worst pancake maker.
I need to get over it because these look amazing!
lemons and blueberries belong together! I really should try making crepes sometime.
I love this kind of blueberry sauce…so perfect for lemon curd too. The crepes look amazing, Jenny!
If I print this recipe out and leave it in the kitchen, I wonder if someone will make these appear for Mother’s Day?
Worth a shot, right?
I really have no words for how delicious those crepes look. Amazing.
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!
these look delicious Jenny! I need to find that prepared lemon curd in my store.
I’d be very happy with these for Mother’s Day! 🙂 And that lemon curd + cream cheese is brilliant!!
All I can say is WOW! That looks delicious. I pinned this recipe immediately and cannot wait to try it. That pink blender? Adorable!
These look great! Next to chocolate & peanut butter, I think that lemon & blueberry is the next best combination of flavors. So tasty! 😀 I hope baby Picky Palate is treating you right…I would hope so, especially after downing some of these! 😉
So pretty and tasty looking too! I’d be a happy mother for sure.
Oh my gosh! That lemon curd mixed with cream cheese?!? Then put together with the blueberry sauce?!? That sounds just heavenly, Jenny!
And, that pink blender is adorable!!!
