Blueberry Crepes with Strawberry Mousse Filling



Recipe Ingredients:
  • 1 cup of flour
  • a glass of whipping cream (around 120mls)
  • 2/3 cup of blueberries
  • a little milk (sufficient)
  • 4 soup spoons of oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 soup spoon of sugar
  • 10 strawberries (finely chopped + a soup spoon of powdered sugar if these aren't too sweet)
  • a dash of vanilla essence
  • vanilla flavoured powdered sugar (or normal)



These are two combined desserts. Crepes + strawberry mousse.

To make these, put in a bowl, the flour, make a well in the centre and place the oil + the egg there, start mixing in the centre with a whisk, once it starts getting thick add the blueberries (these ones previously crushed + mixed with the sugar and heated for around 1 minute to release their colour), continue whisking and as it gets thick again start adding the milk, and whisk and add milk and so on until it becomes liquid with the consistency of double cream.

Now soak a little bit of kitchen paper towel with a little oil and rub this on a non stick frying pan, heat the pan and once hot reduce to med-low heat and pour a couple of serving spoons inside swirl the pan so that it covers the whole bottom, let it cook for around 1-2 minutes you'll see it going golden through the crepe, with a spatula lift the corners and them with your fingers peel it of and turn it upside down, again 1-2 minutes and is done, set it aside on a plate. Then repeat process until all the crepe cream is used. You should get around 6-8 crepes.

let the crepes go cool as they become more malleable and elastic. Whip the cream and add a few drops of vanilla essence, once whipped add and fold in the chopped strawberries also a soup spoon of powdered sugar if the strawberries are not very sweet, once done refrigerate this will harden mousse further. Finally format the crepes as you like fill them with the mousse and decorate as you will, I used powdered vanilla sugar, than I refrigerated them further ..delicious with a nice hot cup of coffee or tea. cheers ..enjoy

This is the perfect choice for crepe filling! Mousse adds so much more than just fruit alone. I think I'm going to splurge and make these for myself this week. I'm excited because I've never tried blueberry crepes.

Nikki the Foodie of Lobster Gram said...

Your recipes never fail to amaze me. I'm going to have to try my luck on this one. I'm great with crepes, but I have never mixed fruit into the batter. Does it present any problems I should beware of?
