The Recipe


- 3/4 cup Burnbrae EGG Creations! Whole Eggs Original
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp granulated sugar
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
- 1 cup 35% whipping cream (Tip: use canned whipped cream to save time)
- 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups sliced summer strawberries
- 6 small strawberries for garnish
- Powdered sugar for dusting (optional)


- In a mixing bowl, whisk together Burnbrae EGG Creations! Whole Eggs Original and milk until well combined.
- Add flour, sugar, and salt to the egg mixture, and whisk until a smooth batter forms. (Optional: for an even silkier texture, sift through a fine mesh sieve). Allow the batter to rest for at least an hour or, for best results, refrigerate it overnight.
- Heat a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Brush the skillet with butter to prevent sticking.
- Pour 1/3 cup of the prepared batter into the skillet, tilting and swirling it to create a thin, even layer.
- Cook the crepe until the edges start to curl away from the skillet, and the pancake turns a light golden color. Flip the crepe and cook the other side.
- Repeat the process with the remaining batter to create a delightful stack of golden crepes.

Prepare the Creamy Strawberry Filling:

- In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the whipping cream, sugar, and vanilla extract.
- Whisk until stiff peaks form, creating a luscious whipped cream.

Assemble the Summer Strawberries and Cream-Stuffed Crepes:

- Divide the whipped cream and sliced summer strawberries equally among the lower third of each crepe.
- Gently roll up the crepes, tucking the ends to secure the luxurious strawberry cream filling inside.
- To serve, sprinkle a light dusting of powdered sugar over the crepes and garnish with a fresh strawberry on top.
