Raspberry Breakfast Crêpes
Oh, my. Do you want a little bit of heaven? Raspberry Breakfast Crêpes. Yep. That’ll do it! These luscious breakfast crêpes are ooey, gooey, rich, decadent and divine! They are so spectacular that they should be on every holiday menu! But who says you have to serve them only for breakfast? These lovely crêpes are so sweet they’re almost like eating dessert. You can even serve them as breakfast for dinner!
My husband has made crêpes for Saturday breakfasts so many times over the years. Our kids always loved them. He grew up eating them in his household. They would spread the warm crêpes with butter or sour cream and then add jellies, preserves or even apple sauce. Soooo, soooo good. Several years ago, I decided to use some leftover filling I had from making Company Cheesecake in the crêpes. They were so fantastic that we’ve been making them with a delicious pie-type filling ever since.
Back when the country was shut down due to the CV 19 pandemic, I decided to make several different kinds of crêpes. Every single one turned out fantastic. I made Blueberry, Strawberry, Banana Split and Raspberry crêpes. Yes, we indulged. Over indulged. 🙂 Every bite was so mouthwatering that we were in constant “drool-mode.”
Raspberry Breakfast Crêpes are so elegant and beautiful that they’re perfect for holiday breakfasts. But for those of you who want to live a little, I suggest you splurge and make these crêpes some weekend for breakfast. They are super sweet so make sure you serve a little protein on the side. Every mouthful is so irresistible that you’ll find Raspberry Breakfast Crêpes are requested frequently. They’ll soon become a “must make” Saturday or Sunday breakfast for your family. Watch and see.

Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients for the crêpes. (This recipe calls for 2% milk. I had to dilute the half-and-half to get the correct consistency).
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl.
Add eggs and vanilla. (I’m making a double batch).
Add melted butter.
Mix ingredients with an electric mixer until smooth.
Spray a non-stick skillet with cooking spray. Pour about 1/3 cup batter into the skillet. Immediately rotate the skillet so the crêpe covers the entire surface. Cook a few minutes until the bottom of the crêpe is cooked.
Flip the crêpe over and cook the other side.
Stack the crêpes on a plate and put in a low 200 degree oven to keep warm.
I used these ingredients for the raspberry filling, plus water.
Combine sugar and cornstarch in a small saucepan.
Mash raspberries on a plate until you get one cup.
Add mashed raspberries and water to sauce pan.
Stir ingredients to combine.
Over medium heat bring mixture to a boil. Boil and stir for 2 to 3 minutes or until mixture thickens. Remove from heat.
Place warm crêpe on a plate.
Spread about a fourth or a third cup of the raspberry filling at the bottom of the crêpe, leaving a one-inch border.
Carefully roll up crêpe.
Gently continue rolling crêpe, being careful to keep the filling inside!
Roll up the crêpe completely. Transfer with a spatula to a serving platter.
Sprinkle crêpes with powdered sugar. Add whipped cream, fresh rasbperries and mint, if desired.
Raspberry Breakfast Crepes are rich, decadent and oh, so heavenly.
Try out these fantastic crêpes on our family some Saturday or Sunday morning. I guarantee it will become one of your most requested breakfast entrees!
Every forkful will have you drooling.
