Conclusion

These crepes are an all time favorite. They make for a great sweet breakfast side as well.

My kids and I pick berries each season and we make so many batches of these dessert crepes. A little bit of light whipped cream or mascarpone and you have a very memorable dish.

This batter can be prepared ahead of time and saved in the refrigerator for up to three days.

You can also freeze your cooked crepes. To reheat, simply place in the oven at 350 degrees for about seven minutes.
