Recipe: Mixed Berry Crepes

Recipe: Mixed Berry Crepes

Filled with fresh ricotta cheese and topped with a variety of fresh, juicy berries, these crepes are easy to make and perfect for a weekend brunch. 

Serves 4


2 cups of milk
2 eggs
1 cup and 2 Tablespoons of all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of olive oil
1/2 teaspoon of orange zest 
1 and a 1/2 pint of strawberries (hulled and quartered)
1 and a 1/2 pint of blueberries
1 and a 1/2 pint of raspberries
2 teaspoons of fresh lemon juice
3 and a 1/2 Tablespoons of granulated sugar, or to taste
1-1/2 cup whole-milk ricotta cheese
1 Tablespoon of olive oil
Confectioners' sugar for dusting


In a blender, combine the milk, eggs, flour, salt, oil and zest. Blend until smooth. Transfer to a bowl, cover and refrigerate for a half hour.

In a large bowl, combine the strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, lemon juice and 2 Tablespoons of the granulated sugar, or to taste. In another bowl, combine the ricotta and the remaining 1 and a 1/2 Tablespoons of granulated sugar. Set aside.

In a crepe pan over medium heat, melt 1 teaspoons of the butter to coat the pan evenly. Pour in 1/4 cup of the batter and spread with a spatula. Cook until the crepe is golden underneath, for 1 to 2 minutes. Flip the crepe over and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate and cover with aluminum foil. Repeat the process to make 8 crepes

Cover half of each crepe with the ricotta mixture and 1/4 cup of the berry mixture and roll into a tube. Place 2 crepes on each individual plate. Top 1/2 cup of berries and dust with confectioners' sugar. Serve immediately.
