DIRECTIONS

  • Filling:
  • Hull, rinse and slice strawberries into a bowl.
  • Add brown sugar and toss until well coated; set aside.
  • In a separate bowl whip whipping cream and refrigerate.
  • Crepes:
  • In a medium bowl whisk all ingredients together until there are no more lumps.
  • Over medium heat, heat crepe pan or non-stick frying pan.
  • When heated remove from heat and spray with cooking oil.
  • Pour a 1/3 cup of the batter in the pan. Quickly lift pan and tilt and turn until batter evenly covers the bottom.
  • Cook over medium heat for 30 - 45 seconds until the edges are dry enough to get a spatula under to flip.
  • Cook for another 30 seconds on the other side.
  • Should not be totally browned.
  • Remove from pan onto a plate.
  • Spray pan with cooking spray and repeat for the rest of the batter.
  • Stack crepes with wax paper between so they can be easily separated.
  • Crepes can be made ahead of time.
  • Can also be frozen wrap first in wax paper then put into plastic bag and then foil.
  • They stay moist if this is done when still slightly warm.
  • Assembly:
  • Down the middle 1/3 of the crepe spread one or 2 heaping spoons of whipped cream (about 2-3" wide).
  • On top of the whipped cream spoon some of the berry sugar mixture.
  • Fold one side of the crepe over the mixture and then the other side over first side.
  • Top with a spoon of berry sugar mixture, whipped cream. Drizzle chocolate syrup or sprinkle shaved chocolate and sliced almond optional.
  • Enjoy.
