LEMON CREPES WITH STRAWBERRY COCONUT FILLING #christmas #breakfast

Hey everybody, it’s Tiffany from Creme de la Crumb! Confession: I have a slight obsession with breakfast. Actually a HUGE obsession with breakfast. Pancakes, waffles, bacon, french toast, oatmeal, I love it all. One of my favorite breakfast foods though is….. crepes! For some reason there is a terrible misconception that crepes are difficult, they are not! It’s basically a really thin pancake. You can make pancakes. So you can make crepes.


The crepe batter is really simple and comes together in just a couple of minutes when you mix it up in the blender. Fry those babies up on the stove, stuff em full of creamy dreamy strawberry-coconut filling, and take a bite of heaven! Doesn’t matter if you’re knee deep in snow, or enduring the rainy season, these crepes will make you feel like you are in paradise.
