White Chocolate Custard filled Crepes - SimplyGloria.com

Have you ever had crepes made right in front of you in a fancy buffet?  And then you see how fast and easy the chef makes it look… Well, it really IS easy!  I’m going to share with you how simple it really is!

This is a sweet, scrumptious Crêpe filled with smooth White Chocolate Custard.  A crêpe is basically a very flat pancake.  With this recipe, it’s filled with a creamy, white chocolate custard that is smooth like pudding.  Top it with some fresh strawberries.  And you have yourself a fancy dancy crêpe!

This can be enjoyed for breakfast, brunch and even for dessert!  The White Chocolate Custard (with recipe and step by step instructions) only takes 20 minutes to make!  The crêpe batter and the custard can be made ahead of time and set in the refrigerator over night.

Whisk in the sifted flour.  It will become very lumpy and you may want to switch to a hand mixer to get the batter as smooth as you can.  Do not over beat the batter, though.

You’ll need a medium sized non-stick frying pan.  Preheat your pan on medium heat.  Drop 1 tablespoon of butter into the pan.  If the butter is melting nicely, continue with the instructions below.  If your butter burns.  (Your pan is too hot.)  Let it cool a little and wipe out the butter with a paper towel and add another piece of butter.

1)  Pour in about 1/2 cup of batter into the center of your heated pan.  2 & 3)  Swirl the pan by the handle to circulate the batter towards the edges.  Once the edges start to look dry,  flip the crêpe for the other side to cook.  This only takes about 1-2 minutes on each side.   4)  This is what the color should look like on both sides.  The crêpe should be able to slide right out of the pan.  You may not  even need to put more butter into the pan.  Note:  The first crêpe is usually not the best one.  So, don’t give up and continue with the rest of the batter!

Spoon some White Chocolate Custard onto the center of the crêpe.  And fold over.  Top the folded crêpe with a little extra custard and some sliced strawberries.  Or of course, your fruit of choice.  Sprinkle and garnish with some powdered sugar.

I’ve always made crêpes for my boys ever since they were little.  They love it with powdered sugar on the inside and rolled all up with maple syrup on top…with more powdered sugar.  We call these “roll up pancakes”.

Have you tasted a crêpe before?  And if so, what is your favorite way to eat them?

Enjoy my friends!

    I remember having a Nutella and banana crêpe at some Asian mini mart. It was delicious but wasn’t much to look at. Yours look much more elegant. Love the custard in here and it’s perfect for Mother’s Day brunch. It’s nice to know that I can make crêpes at home now. Yay! 🙂

      I’m so happy you’re going to give it try again, Tanya! Even after all of these years of making them, I still have to throw a “few” away! I’ve found that it really depends upon the heat of your pan…and the pan itself. Have a wonderful weekend! (=

      Grace, sounds like it will be a fun time with the family coming! That is pretty special how you taught your granddaughter how to make crepes…a lot of people do not know how.
