Strawberry Festival Inspired Crepes

Sharing is caring!

This weekend my family were on our way to Santa Barbara and we happened to be near a Strawberry Festival in Oxnard.  We decided spontaneously to check out the festival.

There were lots of craft booths, entertainment booths, game booths and of course lots and lots of strawberry food items.

They even had strawberry beer and wine! 

We especially liked the chocolate covered strawberries – they were dipped in white, dark and milk chocolate and oh and they tasted so good!

I would recommend checking out the festival if you have an opportunity.  Seeing all of the strawberries made me want to recreate some strawberry love at home so I decided to make some crepes.  I am all about easy and these can be made in just a few minutes.    I filled mine with fresh strawberries and whipped cream, but you can use any combination of fruit, ice cream, cheese, nuts, etc…

BASIC FRUIT CREPE RECIPE

1 1/2 cups fresh fruit

1 cup flour

2 eggs

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup water

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons melted butter.

Whipped cream (I used canned)

First wash and prepare fruit.  Slice or chop fruit an set aside.

Mix flour and eggs until combined.  Add remaining ingredients and mix well.

Heat a smidge of butter in a nonstick pan over medium heat.  When pan is warm, pour in batter to cover pan bottom.  As pan heats, tilt pan so that batter is spread around and can set.

Cook about 1 1/2 minutes, then flip with a spatula and cook another 1 1/2 minutes.  Flip out of pan and fill with fruit, whipped cream, nuts, whatever & enjoy!  Makes about 4 good sized crepes.
