An easy crepe recipe -- Strawberry Banana Crepes with a cheesecake filling. These are divine!

If you have never made crepes before, don’t be scared! Basically you are just making really thin pancakes. The first one might not turn out picture perfect, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll be cranking them out like a professional! The secret is to start swirling the batter around the pan as soon as you pour it in. That spreads the batter out evenly so that it not only cooks evenly, but makes a uniformly shaped crepe.
Strawberry Banana Crepe recipe. Crepes are easier to make than you think. Give this recipe a try!The filling for these crepes is so yummy you could just eat it by the spoonful!! It isn’t overly sweet, and it pairs perfectly with the berries and bananas. If you prefer, you can substitute Cool Whip for the whipped cream, but it will definitely be more sweet. I am a fan of real whipped cream!!

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 2 minutes
Additional Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 22 minutes

Ingredients

Batter

  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • Pinch of salt

Filling

  • 1 cup whipping cream, whipped till soft peaks form
  • 3 oz cream cheese, softened (I used light)
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 (3.4 oz) box instant vanilla pudding
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Topping

  • 2 pints strawberries, washed and sliced
  • 2 large bananas, sliced

Instructions

For crepes: Blend milk, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla in the blender. Slowly add flour, then sugar and salt. Blend well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour so the batter will thicken slightly. Pour about 3-4 Tbsp of batter in the bottom of a round heated non-stick skillet. (Use a little oil if needed for the first crepe.) Tilt the pan to cover the bottom. Cook for 1-2 minutes. Gently use a spatula to flip the crepe. Cook about 1-2 minutes on the second side.

For filling: Blend cream cheese in a mixing bowl till smooth. Gradually beat in the milk till mixture is smooth. Add the dry pudding mix and the vanilla. Beat till smooth. Fold in the whipped cream.

To serve: Spoon about 1/3 cup of filling in the middle of each crepe. Fold the sides in and place on serving plate. Top with sliced berries and bananas. Serve immediately.

Notes

You can make the crepes ahead of time. Just let them cool, stack them on a plate, cover tightly with plastic wrap, and place them in the refrigerator. They will last a day or two.

    can cool whip substitute the whipping cream

    • Yes, you can use an 8 ounce tub of Cool Whip instead of the whipping cream. The filling will be much sweeter though. I definitely prefer using real whipped cream.

  2. Since the pudding isn’t cooked, you definitely want to use instant.

  3. Kathryn says:

    I have the same question as James about the pudding.

    • Definitely instant. Anytime a pudding isn’t cooked, you want to use the instant variety. I accidentally used the cook and serve variety once in another recipe, and learned the hard way that it does make a difference.

  4. Kathryn says:

    I was wondering the same thing about the pudding mix. Instant or the regular?
