Strawberry crepes

Extremely simple, yet full of sweet breakfast flavour.

How long will it take?

10 minutes to prepare, 15 minutes to cook

What’s the serving size?

Serves 4


What do I need?

  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 tsp butter
  • 1/4 cup your favourite jam
  • 1/3 cup double cream
  • 250g (1 punnet) strawberries, sliced

How do I make it?

  1. Sift the flour into a bowl and make a well in the centre. Add the egg and a little milk into the well, then gradually whisk in the flour, slowly adding more milk until you obtain a smooth, thin batter. Strain the mixture through a fine sieve into a jug and stand for at least 10 minutes before cooking the crepes. 
  2. Melt the butter in a 20cm crepe pan, then whisk the hot, melted butter into the crepe mixture. 
  3. Pour enough mixture into the hot pan to thinly cover the base. Cook for 1 minute or until the edges start to brown. Turn and cook the other side for 30 seconds, then transfer to a plate and repeat with the remaining batter, stacking the cooked crepes as you go. 
  4. To assemble, spread each crepe with jam and cream and top with 4-5 slices of strawberry. Fold the crepes and dust with icing sugar just before serving.
