Strawberry Crepes with Whipped Cream Filling

| 31 Comments

Valentine’s Day is just one week away. There’s nothing more sweet than gifting your loved ones with something you have made. There’s plenty of easy DIY ideas and your loved ones or friends will love it even it’s just a simple meal, because you have made them with love. Try this Strawberry Crepes with Whipped Cream Filling for a beautiful Valentines Day breakfast in bed, or served as a classic French dessert.

Crepes are thin and delicate pancakes which can be filled with virtually anything, and it’s really easy to make. The key to great crepes is to let the batter sit and refrigerate for about an hour before cooking. Making crepes may seem tricky at first, the first crepe will usually a flop, but don’t be discouraged. Just keep going and you will find your rhythm in making these lovely crepes.

As it is Valentine’s, I added Strawberry Puree into the crepe batter for pink colour crepes but they did not turn out as pink as I wanted. Nonetheless, these crepes tastes amazing! The whipped cream is light and the strawberries gave each bite a slight sour surprise. and the chocolate drizzle just makes it completely heavenly. As rich as they may look and sound, I have to say, they weren’t that overly disgusting rich at all.


I’m submitting this Strawberry Crepes to Be My Valentine Challenge on Very Good Recipes.
