Make This Strawberry Crepes Recipe a Holiday Tradition - 2 Dads with Baggage

Make This Strawberry Crepes Recipe a Holiday Tradition

This post about my Strawberry Crepes Recipe was sponsored by a2 Milk® and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

When the holidays roll around, so does the delicious food. With all the decadent treats and sweet surprises, it’s nice to balance it out with a wholesome breakfast that still brings a wow to the table. Whenever I make this Strawberry Crepes Recipe my family thinks I’m a hero, but what I’m really trying to do is get a good breakfast into them to balance the parade of candy!

Using only the best ingredients helps me ensure we’re eating healthy, which is why I like using a2 Milk ® in my cooking. Take this Strawberry Crepes Recipe for example. When I make this delicious breakfast dish using a2 Milk, I know my family is consuming milk from cows that naturally produce the A2 Protein.

Not only that, purchasing a2 Milk this holiday season will directly support Toys For Tots.

Why a2 Milk?

a2 Milk is from cows that naturally produce only the A2 Protein and are not treated with the growth hormone rBST. With the natural A2 protein, a2 Milk is easier on digestion and may help some avoid stomach discomfort. Sophia has some lactose intolerance issues, so we appreciate that a2 Milk provides her the opportunity to enjoy milk again. Plus we all just love the velvety smooth taste and quality of a2 Milk – we can just feel the difference.
You can find a2 Milk at Walmart.

We Fell in Love with Crepes in Paris

Crepes have been a favorite in our family for a very long time, since we took the girls to Paris for their first overseas trip when they were just 5 and 7 years old, Ava and Sophia were intrepid little adventure seekers on the streets of Paris. We visited the top of the Eiffel Tower and caught snowflakes on our tongues, had a snowball fight in the plaza fronting Notre Dame, and ate many upon many crepes from street vendors. And a love affair for crepes was born.
Now fully grown, the girls still remember those Parisian crepes and love it when I make them at home. I can’t say whether I’ve mastered the flavor of those special memories, but this Strawberry Crepes Recipe is still a family favorite.
And don’t be intimidated – this recipe is easier to make than you think!

Strawberry Crepes Recipe for the Holidays and Beyond

Of course you can make this Strawberry Crepes recipe any time of year that fresh strawberries are available, but during the holidays they seem extra special. Maybe it’s the festive combination of red strawberries and white sour cream that looks like a candy cane? Who knows, but it works!

Strawberry Crepes Recipe

Makes about 12

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, separated
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups a2 Milk® Whole Milk
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter (unmelted, save aside for cooking)
  • 1 pound fresh strawberries, cored and sliced
  • 1/2 cup strawberry preserves
  • 3/4 cups sour cream

Directions for Making Strawberry Crepes Recipe

To Make the Crepes:

1.    In a blender, mix flour, 1 tablespoon sugar, salt, a2 Milk, eggs, vanilla and butter until smooth, for about a minute. Refrigerate for 20-30 minutes, and remix in blender for 1-2 seconds to combine.
2.    Coat a crepe pan or nonstick skillet with butter over medium heat. Using a 1/3 cup measuring cup, scoop batter and pour into skillet. Tilt pan to ensure batter is spread evenly across bottom of pan.

3.    Cook until crepe bubbles slightly and edges begin to lift from pan, about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. Using a spatula and your fingers, gently flip crepe and ensure it lays flat on bottom of pan. Cook on second side for about 30 seconds until just set and appears lightly golden. Remove onto paper towel-lined plate.

4.    Repeat process with remaining batter, coating pan with more butter between cooking each crepe.

To Stuff the Crepes:

1.    Slice strawberries and place in medium bowl. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar, gently mix and set aside.

2.    Place crepe on a plate or flat surface. Using a spoon, spread 1-2 teaspoons strawberry preserves in a line across middle of crepe. Using a separate spoon, spread 1 tablespoon sour cream across middle of crepe directly underneath preserves. Top middle of crepe with generous line of fresh strawberries.

3.    Fold bottom half of crepe upwards to cover strawberries and roll from underneath like a burrito.

4.    Place on plate and serve. Can be garnished with dollop of sour cream and slice of strawberry if you are feeling extra fancy.
