GastronomicGallivant:French Crepes With Yogurt and Strawberry Filling

Print  Friendly and PDF
Crepes - A very thin french pancake. I have to say the best crepe(s) that I ever had was from a roadside creperie stand on Paris` famous avenue called "Champ Elysees" a few years ago. It was fascinating to watch the vendor make the crepe using a tool called "Crepe Spreader" that I had never seen before. My favorite filling was Sucre-Banane and my Hubby's was Nutella. Why did it taste like heaven? Was it because I was utterly famished after being on my feet all day long at the Louvre? Did the flavor go up a notch because I was finally having those crepes on that Avenue? I don't know.
But every time I make crepes at home,I get to relive the memories all over again. The taste though awesome, comes close enough but not the same.
This makes its way to Priya's Cooking with seeds along with Bulgur Pudding, Cocoa N Saffron Vermicelli pudding, Puran Poli, Almond StoveTop Pudding, Sweet Barley Congee, Mixed Veggie Pilaf

This along with Boston Baked Beans, Ligurian Shrimp Stew, South Indian Mini Meals, "Marina Beach" Style Sundal NYC Pop Burger Sliders goes to Jagruti's Joyful Eating Whilst Travelling.

 
Ingredients:
For the Crepes(Please use EXACT measurements for 6 medium crepes):
  • Egg - 2
  • Partly Skimmed Milk - 1/4 cup
  • Butter - 1 1/2 tbsp, melted
  • Whole Wheat Flour - 5 tsp, leveled
  • Salt - a pinch
  • Cardamom powder - 1/8 tsp
For the Filling:
  • Yoplait Yogurt - 1, strawberry flavor
  • Strawberry - 6(one per crepe), sliced
Procedure:
  • Whisk all of the ingredients under "For the crepes" either using a whisk or in a food processor.Batter should be runny and slightly thicker than water.
  • Refrigerate for an hour.
  • Spray/Coat a skillet with butter or oil.When hot, add a ladle-full(about 2 tbsp) of batter and quickly swirl the pan so the batter is evenly spread out.
 
  • Cook the crepes for 1 minute per side. Move them to a serving plate.
 
  • Spread one half of the crepe with Yoplait Yogurt and top that with sliced berries.Fold and serve immediately.
Makes 6 medium-sized crepes

Enjoy!

  7. Your crepes look beautiful. I went to Paris about 20 years ago and had a Nutella crepe which I absolutely loved. I can't remember the name of the place. But I have never tried to make them at home. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Nice.. I have no idea why I have not been following you. I thought I was. I love the idea of using store bought yogurt in filling the crepe.Its much better than using custard or nutella. I will keep this bookmarked.
