Enjoy a restaurant favorite from the comfort of your kitchen with this fast and fresh recipe for Strawberry Cream Cheese Crêpes.

Two pale blue plates with Strawberry Cream Cheese Crêpes topped with fresh strawberries, whipped cream and powdered sugar.

If you’re tired of pancakes, a bit worn out on waffles and not really feeling the pastry situation, then allow me to introduce you to your next breakfast (or snack … or dessert) creation: Strawberry Cream Cheese Crêpes!

Two pale blue plates with Strawberry Cream Cheese Crêpes topped with fresh strawberries and whipped cream dusted with powdered sugar.

My first authentic experience with crêpes was during a trip to Paris in college. They were hot off the griddle, smothered with Nutella, and quickly folded into quarters then stuffed into a paper cone. They were perfection.

Since that first taste, I’ve been keen to order the stuffed, rolled or quartered pockets of deliciousness nearly every time I’ve seen them pop up on a restaurant menu, be it savory (ham and gooey cheese) or sweet (sautéed peaches and caramel).

But if you have a blender and a few simple ingredients, this French favorite is only minutes (rather than miles!) away.

The key with making these Strawberry Cream Cheese Crêpes is to work incredibly quickly once the batter hits the hot pan. You have to swirl it just fast enough to coat the entire bottom of the pan without overloading it with batter. Because too much batter = thick, rigid crêpes that are impossible to roll or quarter.

But here’s the real beauty of this recipe: Once you master the technique, the filling options are endless. I’ve opted for a pairing of tangy vanilla-flavored cream cheese (a.k.a. cheesecake) and freshly sliced strawberries, but you can swap in whatever fruit is in season.

Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 30 mins
Total Time 40 mins
Servings 6 servings

Ingredients 

For the crepes:

  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

For the filling:

  • 6 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 cups sliced strawberries, divided

Instructions 

Make the crêpes:

  • In a blender, combine the eggs, milk, water, melted butter, flour and salt. Blend under combined, scraping down the sides as needed.
  • Place a crêpe pan or medium nonstick sauté pan over medium-low heat. Once the pan is hot, add about 2 ½ tablespoons of the batter and quickly swirl it to coat the entire bottom of the pan in a thin layer. Once the edges are set, flip the crêpe once and continue cooking it another 30 seconds then remove it to a plate. 
  • Repeat the cooking process with the remaining batter, stacking the crêpes atop one another and covering them with a damp towel. 

Make the filling:

  • In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, sour cream, sugar and lemon zest and beat it with a handheld mixture until smooth. (Alternately, stir together the mixture by hand or using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.) Fold in 1 cup of the sliced strawberries.
  • When ready to serve, slather each crêpe with a portion of the filling then roll it up or fold it into quarters. Top the crêpes with the remaining 1 cup of sliced strawberries and serve.

  1. Made these this morning. This was my first time making crepes and they turned out wonderful. So light and refreshing with just the right amount of sweetness. Paired perfect with sausage on the side. I will be adding this recipe to my favorites. Thank you!!

  2. Such a beautiful vehicle for the star of it all – fresh, ripe, in-season strawberries! These are absolutely mouthwatering!

  3. 5 stars
    I love crepes. I had them first in Berlin at a little cafe by the bombed out church. Then I used to get them in the bahnhof in between trains on the way to work. They had a little trailer that sold them and you could pick what you wanted in them (back in the 70’s and 80’s but I think it disappeared in the 90’s). I used to get nutrella sometimes but would try other things too. I used to get mushrooms and onions that some guy cooked in this huge cast iron skillet on my way home. They were awesome.
