"This recipe can be used for all your dessert crepes. You can cook them fresh and use them or better yet make a batch, wrap them in plastic, then foil and freeze them for future use. Have wax paper between the crepes. Dessert fillings will be posted separately. I say 20 crepes this depends on the size and how thin you pour them.Mine are almost paper thin and about the size of a large side plate"

  1. fantastic recipe. so much easier than my old crepe batter. have successfully made vegan by using margarine and coconut milk; also added a little vanilla. ice cream filling with a drizzle of chocolate syrup - yum! guests are so impressed! used a small cast-iron frypan which i did have to brush with a little melted margarine or olive oil every 5-6 crepes, mostly at the beginning. thank you so much for this great recipe!
  2. Fantastic! This is my go-to dessert when we have guests over! I make the crepes a day or two in advance and just heat them up in the oven prior to serving! We fill them with mixed berries and chocolate sauce! Yum! Thanks Bergy for another great recipe!
  3. This is the best crepe recipe I've ever tried, and I've tried a bunch. This was easy to make and easy to use. I didn't have enough time to chill it for an hour, and it still was perfect. And, of course, they tasted heavenly. This will now be my standard crepe recipe. Thanks Bergy!
  4. Great crepes!
  5. Easy and oh so good, as with all of Bergy's recipes. This made for a special Birthday Breakfast for a special little boy and it was a huge hit. Filled with Chocolate Bavarian cream and topped with fresh home made whip cream. What a great breakfast for those special occasions. I didn't have a crepe pan so just used a small fry pan and it work fine


On January 10 2010 I will celebrate 9 years of Life with Zaar. I can't imagine being without it! It has become part of my daily routine. I feel very privileged to be one of the hosts on the Photo Forum. Taking photos of my culinary efforts is a full time hobby and I love it. My friends all know what to expect when they come to dinner "Are you finished taking pictures?" or "Did you get a photo of so & so?" I never let them wait too long and the food is NEVER cold! I now have over 6000 photos on Zaar - some fairly good and some definitely not so good. I am happy to say that practice does help. My roots are in Vancouver BC Canada - a very beautiful city that holds many wonderful memories for me. In 1990, I decided that for my retirement years I may want to settle in a smaller community and found a slice of heaven in the North Okanagan B.C. I love living here but every once in a while I miss the bright city lights, the Broadway shows and some of the small wonderful ethnic restaurants that Vancouver abounds in. That is easily resolved. I just take a trip to the coast, visit with friends for a weekend see a show and feast on Dim Sum or other specialty foods. I am getting a bit long in the tooth but was a very adventurous person. I have river rafted Hell's Gate on the Fraser river, been up in a glider over Hawaii (no not a Hang Glider!), gone hot air ballooning in the Napa Valley & the Fraser Valley, driven dune buggies on the dunes in Oregon, Para sailing in Mexico and tried many other adventurous, challenging, fun things. I have yet to try bungee jumping or sky diving. I may do them yet. I love to travel and experience other cultures. Mexco has been a favorite haunt. I have visited that lovely country many many times. Australia is another favorite as is England! In the past 16 months I have taken off 61 pounds and feel wonderful. I am off all medications and all systems are GO! In years I may be 79 but in spirit I am still in my forties. We are only as old as we allow ourselves to feel. Always think positive. Do something a bit challenging every day & always do something silly every day. Be a kid again! Laugh every day - it is internal jogging.
