Lemon crepes with berries

Posted by

The weather is so beautiful right now that I look forward to those mornings when we can enjoy our breakfast on the balcony, soaking in as much sun, relishing on the soft crepes, and sipping on coffee. Delicate crepes with the hint of lemon paired with blueberries make for a brilliant breakfast.

It is surprising what a handful of ingredients can lead to. I have always loved the zest of Meyer lemon more than the juice itself. Lemon and blueberries work beautifully together, but I used red currants for a change. Add a spoon of sweetened labneh or whipped cream on the side of your crepes, which makes it even better. 

It is suggested that non-stick pan results in perfect crepes, however, I use this seasoned cast iron crepes pan, and the results are equally good. It just takes a little time and effort. 

Even though the stuffed crepes are becoming increasingly popular with so many toppings and a crazy number of sauces to go with, I love the classic crepes. I can enjoy them as such with a drizzle of honey.

How do you like your crepes?
