Prep Time:20 mins
Cook Time:1 hr
Total Time:1 hr 20 mins
Servings:8 crepes

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoons granulated sugar for filling
  • teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Mascarpone cheese
  • 4 teaspoons fresh basil minced
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries sliced

Instructions

  • Mix eggs, milk, butter, flour, 1 tablespoon sugar, and salt in a bowl. Whisk until smooth. You can also use a blender. Cover and refrigerate the batter for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, cook the filling. Mix cheese and 1 tablespoon sugar in a separate bowl. Add basil and lemon juice. Add strawberries, mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes.
  • Heat a skillet over medium heat. Grease skillet with butter. Spoon about 3 tablespoons crepe batter onto the skillet and cook for 1-2 minutes on one side, then flip over. Cook the rest of the batter this way.
  • Spoon filling over each crepe and roll up. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

  • Add a splash of liqueur (perhaps Cointreau or Drambuie) if you’re making these for a special occasion and want a boozy kick!
  • Prepare your crepe filling the night before you make these to cut down on the prep time even more. This is a handy shortcut if you want to enjoy your guests rather than be in the kitchen fussing over the food.
  • Keep some whole basil leaves aside to garnish the finished crepes. No basil? Fresh mint makes a good substitute in this recipe.
