These Blueberry Sauce Crepes with Honey Whipped Cream were my first attempt at crepes but definitely won’t be my last.
Blueberry Sauce Crepes with Honey Whipped Cream
I spend way too much time standing and staring in my fridge trying to figure out what to do with leftover bits and pieces I have laying around. We aren’t big on eating leftovers so I throw out a lot more than I keep. However, I couldn’t bring myself to get rid of the blueberry pie filling after I made Blueberry Cheesecake Egg Rolls for #blogfilmfood. I had no idea what I was going to do with it, but I wanted to find something new so I could share it with you guys. Once again Pinterest came through for me and these Blueberry Sauce Crepes with Honey Whipped Cream had me drooling as soon as I saw them.
Since I had the pie filling, I didn’t actually make the blueberry sauce. However, it looks amazing and not at all difficult so next time I’ll throw that together too.
The crepe batter was easy, I whisked up the wet ingredients and added the flour mixture a little at a time until it was combined and smooth. Overwhisking doesn’t seem to be a problem, no lumps necessary for this batter. I set it aside and wandered off to give it a chance to rest. The recipe suggests 15 minutes but I’m pretty sure my impatient self was back in there before that.
I’ve always had preconceived notions about how complicated something is going to be. Crepes were on my list of things that I might have trouble with. The first 5 or so didn’t turn out well and reinforced that idea. They were either undercooked, fried or just plain wobbly so they went straight in the trash. At that point I considered walking away but there was a lot of batter left so I stuck with it until I finally got the hang of it and the rest of them went off without too much trouble. I made a huge mess and there may have been one that leapt out of the pan and squished on the cooktop but aside from that y’all it was totally easy, haha!
Sometimes you just have one of those days when things don’t work out the way you want them too. The whipped cream is probably the easiest part of this. I threw the whipping cream and honey in the kitchen aid, turned it on and walked away. Bad idea, apparently if you just leave it alone the whipped cream breaks down and you wind up with a curdled looking mess. I threw out the first batch and started a second, I can’t tell you how glad I am that I had a big container of whipping cream that day! This time I hung around and watched it, as soon as it started to look like whipped cream I turned it off.
I threw down a finished crepe, added some pie filling (which I should have warmed a bit but didn’t think about) and a good amount of the honey whipped cream and wrapped them up. I added a little more and dug in. I’m pretty sure I only ate 2 before I remembered that Joe probably wanted to eat too. These were amazing, the crepes weren’t perfect but the blueberry and whipped cream filling made up for it. The whipped cream alone was to die for, I might have dug into it with a spoon and eaten the rest all by itself…but probably not, that wouldn’t be good for me or the fit of my yoga pants. I swear y’all that whipped cream is going to make appearances in my house as often as I can justify it, it’s *that* good.
Y’all get this on your plan for breakfast this weekend…or have them for dinner, or dessert. I don’t care when you eat them but you need to try them, they are amazing!
Have you made your own crepes? I’d love to know what your favorite filling is so leave me a comment and tell me all about it.
