In the past few years, crepes have been popping up in every restaurant and cafe in my town. I always assumed that they were these super tough, finicky brunch item that would be tough to make so I had never tried to make them myself. After having a craving for them and not feeling like wrangling up the kids to go to a restaurant, I finally started looking into making them myself and couldn’t not believe how EASY they are to make.

Aside from being super easy to make, they are so versatile and can be filled with all sorts of delicious fillings that range from sweet to savory. Similar to a super thin pancake, crepes are made from basic ingredients that you most likely already have in the house. They can even be made ahead of time and reheated (or even freeze them for later use). The only ingredients needed for crepes are flour, eggs, milk, water, butter and salt. So simple!

Today I’m sharing one of our favorite quick to prep crepe recipes that will have everyone smiling on happy for a quick weekend brunch: Cherry-filled crepes! These delicious crepes are filled with cherry preserves, drizzled with a sweet cookie butter or chocolate hazelnut, dusted with powdered sugar and a dollop of whipped cream. YUM!

I was inspired to share this recipe due to Eggland’s Best 2018 “America’s Best Recipe” Contest! Eggland’s Best America Best Recipe contest invites fans to submit recipes inspired by their local hometown or states favorite ingredients or dishes for the chance to win $10,000!
