Vanilla Crepes with Mixed Berry Filling


Ingredients

Berry Filling

  • 2 cups mixed berries (blue berry, raspberry, blackberry)
  • ½ cup fresh orange juice
  • 1½  tablespoon sugar

For the pancake

  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • ¾ cup 2% milk
  • 1 egg white lightly beaten
  • 2 teaspoons canola/vegetable oil
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla essence
  • Pinch of salt
  • Butter for skillet
  • Powdered sugar for sprinkling

Method

Make the filling

Since the berries and orange juice I used are quite sweet, I used only 1 ½ teaspoons of sugar.  Depending on the sweetness of the berries and orange juice, you can increase or decrease the amount of sugar.

  • Cook berries with sugar in orange juice for about 10 minutes or until the berries are mushy and not watery

Make the crepes

  • Add flour to the bowl and add salt, oil, milk, vanilla essence and mix well
  • The batter should be quite thin.  If it’s too thick, add 1 tablespoon of extra milk at a time
  • Add a bit of butter to a 6 inch skillet and heat until sizzling
  • Add a spoonful of batter to the skillet, tilting the pan back and forth to completely cover the base thinly
  • Cook on both side until lightly browned
  • Make about 8 crepes as above
  • Transfer to a plate and add a spoonful of cooked berry  in the middle and fold
  • Add some berry mix on the top and sprinkle with powdered sugar

Yields: 8 crepes
