Delicious Summer Fruit Crepes Recipe

Nothing screams summer more than delicious seasonal fruits for dessert every evening (if you have an enormous sweet tooth!).

A fruit crêpe is the ideal treat after a long afternoon of swimming at the beach, followed by a delicious summer barbecue with friends and family. This recipe takes about 30 minutes to prepare and tastes amazing paired with a cocktail or sweet tea.

Ingredients

1 cup flour

300ml full cream milk

1 egg

20g butter (softened)

1 cup of your favourite summer fruits

2 tbsp jam

Method

  1. Combine the jam and summer fruits into a saucepan over medium heat. Stir occasionally to allow everything to mesh together. Remove and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, egg and milk. Whisk together until smooth before adding the melted butter.
  3. Add a little olive oil into a frying pan, and transfer one ladle of batter. Cook until each side is golden brown before flipping to the other side. This recipe will make about four large-sized crêpes, but you can always decrease the serving size to make more.
  4. Serve each crêpe (either rolled up or laid flat) with the jam and summer fruits garnished over the top. Add some powdered sugar, chocolate or whipped cream for extra flavour.

Nutella Crepe Cake Recipe

How good does this chocolate hazelnut crepe cake with chocolate sauce look? It’s actually much easier to make then you think, and is ready to serve in 30 minutes!

Serves: 4
Preparation time: 10 minutes, cooking time: 20 minutes

Ingredients
Crepes
2 eggs
2 egg yolks
125g plain flour
300ml milk
1/2 tbsp castor sugar
oil spray
250g Nutella or other chocolate hazelnut spread
2/3 cup thickened cream, whipped

Chocolate Sauce:
1/2 cup thickened cream
1 tbsp brown sugar
100g dark chocolate, roughly chopped or broken into pieces

Method
1. Place eggs, yolks, flour and milk in a bowl and using a whisk, mix to a smooth batter.

2. Heat a non-stick frying pan, and spray lightly with oil.

3. Pour in some batter and swirl the pan around to evenly and thinly cover the base. Cook until lightly browned before turning, then cook other side until lightly browned and cooked through. Set aside and repeat the process until all of the batter is used.

4. For the chocolate sauce, place cream and sugar into a saucepan and bring to a simmer.

5. Add chocolate, then remove from heat and stir until smooth. Place into a jug and set aside to cool

6. Place one crêpe onto a cake stand or plate, spread with hazelnut spread and whipped cream. Spread another crêpe with chocolate hazelnut spread and whipped cream, then place on top of the first crêpe and repeat this process until the last layer of crêpe.

7. Before serving, pour the chocolate sauce over the crêpes. Serve with fresh strawberries, raspberries or blueberries.

Tip: Add one tablespoon of hazelnut or coffee liquor to the chocolate sauce for that special indulgence.

What’s your all-time favourite dessert?
