If you want to feel like “Queen for a day” have someone place a plate of these crepes in front of you.

Aren’t they just so darn pretty?!?

Sweet Crepes with Summer Fruits An Affair from the Heart

Crepes are something I have never made.  I don’t know what it is that intimidated me?  Now that I have made them, they really aren’t difficult at all.  Just do what I did and channel your inner Julia Child. 😉


Of course, it was made easy for me when I found this step by step recipe from my friend, Nicole, at PicNic.

Freaky Friday Summer 2016

It’s time for another round of Freaky Friday! If you have been with me for a while, you know what this means.  A bunch of my good foodie friends and I swap blogs, we cook/bake from someone’s and keep it a secret until the reveal day (TODAY!) and we all put our recipes up at one time.  It’s so much fun to see who had you and what they selected!

I was so excited when I got Nicole’s blog! She and I have “known” one another for a couple of years now.  Meeting in the food blogging community.  Nicole is quite that amazing young lady.  She is a scientist, has a PhD in molecular neuroscience, and teaches at a university.  When she isn’t using all of that fantastic brain power, she loves to spend time in the kitchen developing new recipes, cooking and baking for and with her new husband Emmet.  You just have to go browse her blog, you will be delighted at the wide array of recipes she has.

When I drew her name, I immediately assumed that I would be making one of her awe-inspiring desserts.  I mean, just look at this Strawberry White Chocolate Cheesecake and this Chocolate and Strawberry Swiss Roll — it was hard to look any further.  Then I got lost in the section of curries she makes — and thought I would go a completely different route all together.  That was until I saw the crepes.  I have to admit, I was a bit intimidated — but I talked myself off the ledge and went for it!

Sweet Crepes with Summer Fruits

A large portion of our grocery bill in the summer is produce.  It’s just so good! We eat TONS of it.  When I saw the recipe called for Summer Fruits – I knew this was the one! I mean, it’s the summer edition of Freaky Friday— it’s just perfect!

I love how they turned out!! The crepes were only slightly sweet, I filled them with a mixture of peaches, raspberries, strawberries and blueberries.  I topped them with a little whipped cream, and we were ready to dig in.

Everyone enjoyed them, and I will most certainly make them again! The options for filling them are endless!

Servings: 12 crepes

Author: Michaela Kenkel


  • For the Crepes:
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 Tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • For Filling/Serving:
  • Strawberries quartered
  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries
  • Peaches diced
  • whipped cream
  • Syrup if desired


  • Sift the flour and sugar into a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the center and whisk in the eggs. Stir in the milk, melted butter, and vanilla.
  • In a smaller sized fry pan (mine was about 6.5 inches at the base) melt a little bit of butter over a medium heat. For each crepe, add 1/4 cup of the batter to the fry pan, tilt the pan to cover the base evenly. Cook for 1-2 minutes, flip, and continue to cook for a further minute.
  • Transfer each crepe to an oven on a very low heat to keep them warm while cooking the other crepes.
  • Fill each crepe with fruit, top with whipped cream and syrup if desired.


I cut the recipe in half when I made them (showing the full recipe here) it made exactly 6 crepes with the recipe cut in half, using the frying pan with the 6.5 inch base.

    1. Thanks! I just used a regular frying pan — I might have to look into this crepe pan your are talking about!

  4. I had my first crepe a few weeks ago while on vacation. It was yummy! I have always been a fan of the pillowy pancakes but that first crepe changed my way of thinking! Thanks for a great recipe so I can make my own!

  5. My husband and I made these this morning with a combination of fresh blueberries, raspberries, and bananas, as well as frozen peaches. We added just 1 tablespoon of sugar to the fruit because the peaches and blueberries were just a tad tart. This recipe was outstanding. We will definitely make these again.
