Glenda’s Strawberry Crepes with Greek Yogurt Filling

It’s April in Asheville, and spring is literally bursting out every which way you look: look up and you’ll see flowering dogwood trees, which happen to be the state flower in North Carolina. Look down and you’ll see a colorful palette of flora including daffodils, painted trillium, pink and yellow lady’s slipper, among others. And if you walk into any farmer’s market right now and you’ll find fresh strawberries available now – and that’s the main ingredient in the best strawberry crepe recipe in Asheville, NC.

Prep Time: 45 Minutes
Cook Time: 15 Minutes
Total Time: 1 Hour
Servings: 4

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • Zest from 1 orange
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Sliced strawberries with powdered sugar to taste; blackberries or blueberries for color
  • Vanilla Greek yogurt

Instructions:

  1. Mix first six ingredients together well with a whisk or immersion blender.

  2. Let mixture sit for a minimum of 30 minutes to allow gluten to develop (can also sit overnight).

  3. Preheat a non-stick crepe pan until drops of water sizzle on surface. Add a small ladle of crepe batter to pan. Tilt/roll pan to allow batter to cover the entire bottom; the crepe batter should be very thin. If it will not flow well over the pan, you may need to thin the batter with water until the batter flows over bottom of the pan.

  4. Let the crepe cook until the batter is set and the underside has a little color. Then flip the crepe and cook 10 seconds on the opposite side. Slide onto plate and cover to keep the crepe moist. Repeat until all of the batter is used; I usually get 8-10 crepes.

  5. Spoon vanilla yogurt onto 1 side of crepe (1 tbsp) and fold crepe in half. Fold in half again or roll crepe. Repeat until all crepes are filled.

  6. Place 2 crepes on each plate and spoon sweetened sliced strawberries on top. Sprinkle with blackberries or blueberries, and if you like you can add whipped cream.
