I love crepes. They're so versatile (especially with this batter recipe) to enjoy salty or sweet. This tasty sweet version can be used a breakfast treat or a fun dessert.

Ingredients

CREPE BATTER

1 c
flour
1 Tbsp
plus 1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp
sugar
1/4 tsp
salt
1 c
milk
3
eggs
5 Tbsp
melted butter
1 Tbsp
canola oil
1/2 c
white cornmeal
2 Tbsp
half-and-half

CREAM CHEESE MIXTURE

6 oz
softened cream cheese
1/4 c
powdered sugar
grated peel of one lemon
3/4 c
heavy cream, cold

BLUEBERRY SAUCE

1/2 c
water
1 c
sugar
6 oz
blueberries
juice from 1 lemon
1 pinch
salt

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Whisk together first 5 ingredients plus cornmeal for crepe batter. Beat in milk, half-and-half, and beaten eggs, then add butter and oil and stir until smooth.
2
In another bowl, beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and lemon peel until fluffy. Beat in the lemon juice.
3
Using an electric mixer, beat the heavy cream until soft peaks form. Fold into the cream cheese mixture and refrigerate.
4
Pre-heat skillet or other flat pan to medium heat. Grease the pan with a tiny bit of butter. Add 2 tablespoons of crepe batter to the middle of the pan, then tilt and rotate the pan to form a thin, circular crepe. Cook until bubbles form on the top and sides begin to lift, then flip. Cook about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Repeat with the rest of the batter. (I do not add additional butter after the first crepe because I find it easier to form the crepes with less butter. You may need to add butter in between crepes depending on the pan you use.)
5
In a sauce pan, bring the sugar and water to a boil on medium-high heat, cooking undisturbed about 5 minutes. Add blueberries, lemon juice, and salt. Cook 4 additional minutes then remove from heat.
6
When all crepes are finished, spread some cream cheese mixture towards one side of crepe, then roll to other side. Top with blueberry sauce.

Enjoy!
