Coconut Cream Crepes

by Emma on August 4, 2011

in Breakfast

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while then you know that I (somewhat) recently learned how to make crepes.

And that day was awesome.

When I have an awesome day, I usually try to repeat activities from said day. It’s a systematic approach to happiness.

Just kidding, I don’t really know what I’m talking about.

But I do really enjoy crepes… possibly even more than I enjoy pancakes (gasp!). So with nearly a full can of left over coconut milk in my refrigerator (leftover from this recipe) I decided to give coconut crepes a go.

The crepes themselves have a very subtle coconut taste, so feel free to pile on the coconut for ‘garnish.’ Also, I realized half-way through devouring these, toasting the coconut before topping these crepes would have been even better.

So give that a whirl. Be better than me. Please.

Also, you should totally serve these with dark chocolate inside. Chocolate and coconut where always meant to be.

Coconut Cream Crepes, makes 4-6 large-ish crepes.

You will need: 2 eggs, 3/4 cup milk, 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons water, 1/4 cup coconut milk, 1 cup flour and 3 tablespoons melted butter.

Put all these ingredients in a blender and puree until well combined. Let the batter rest in the refrigerator for 10-20 minutes.

When you are good and ready, melted so butter in a shallow sauce pan over medium heat. Pour batter from the blender container onto the hot pan, give it a shake to distribute everything. You can these to be pretty thin. Skinny-minis, if you will.

Once they are set use a spatula to flip them and cook for another minute or two on the other side. Repeat until you have used all the batter.

Yum – crepes are so easy, yet seem intimidating. Once you have them down, the possibilities are endless :) .

mmm, looks delicious. I have tried to make crepes countless of times but they never come out right. I need to master this skill because paying $5-8 for crepe is insane.

Julia August 8, 2011 at 3:42 pm

I tried these this weekend and they were so amazing!!! I actually did not do the coconut milk. I used my almond milk for the regular milk as well as the coconut milk. I put a little cream cheese in them and folded them up with a little raspberry jam on top. So yummy!!!

Meghan August 9, 2011 at 6:58 am
