crepes topped with whipped cream and strawberry recipe

~~ CREPE 

  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • non-stick spray

~~ TOPPING

  • 1 cup chopped strawberry ( i used left over strawberries from my pie )
  • 1 cup whipped cream
  • 1 cup white sugar (optional)

crepe:

Mix all ingredients together, manual whisk works. Cover and chill for 30 mins to an hour. Spray a non-stick pan with non-stick spray and pour batter slowly. When cooked, carefully flip the crepe. When ready, take out from the pan and let it cool for minutes. I like my crepes brownish.

topping:

Mix all ingredients. (In my case, I only have a whipping cream so I poured it into a blender and beat it until cream is smooth and fluffy, spooned it to a bowl and combined it with the chopped strawberries.) I wanted a sweeter kick to my cream so I added in a cup of white sugar. Place the filling on top of the crepe. Serve and enjoy.

**preparation good for 2 servingsImage
