Chocolate Crepes with Fresh Strawberry Cream


Happy Valentine’s Day!  Whether you go all-out or small and simply let your sweeties know you care, we hope you have a delicious day in every way.  Here’s one more tempting treat to tantalize you!

My mom and I are headed out for a fun and relaxing girl’s weekend.  We’ll be back with more good eats on Tuesday!

 

Chocolate Crepes with Fresh Strawberry Cream

 

Chocolate Crepes

3/4 cup flour

4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup powdered sugar

2 eggs

2/3 cup milk

1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons water

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, salt and powdered sugar.  Mix together the eggs, milk, water and vanilla.  Make a well in the dry ingredients; pour in the liquid ingredients.  Combine with a few swift strokes until just combined.  Ignore the lumps; they will take care of themselves.  Heat a 5 inch skilled over medium heat.  Coat skillet with nonstick cooking spray.  Add a small amount of batter (we are talking less than 1/4 cup) and QUICKLY lift the skillet and rotated it to cover the bottom of the pan.  Cook until brown underneath (it cooks quick so watch it close) and flip to cook the other side.  Repeat with remaining batter.

Fill crepes with fresh strawberry cream.  You can roll them or fold them in fourths.  I highly recommend you add additional sliced strawberries.

 

Fresh Strawberry Cream

1 cup heavy whipping cream

1/3 cup powdered sugar

4-6 large strawberries pureed to make 1/4 cup

fresh strawberries for serving, optional
