Raspberry Filled Crepes
What You Need
1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 12 cubes
1 cup raspberry jam
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 teaspoons powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Fresh raspberries and vanilla sugar, recipe follows
1) For the crepes: Preheat the oven to 150 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2) In a blender, add the eggs, milk, flour, sugar, and salt. Blend until the mixture forms a smooth batter. Preheat a 10-inch nonstick crepe pan or skillet over medium-low heat. Add 1 cube of butter to the pan. When the butter has melted, add 1/4 cup of batter and quickly tilt the pan to form an even coating of batter on the bottom of the pan. Cook for 1 minute until set and slightly browned. Using a heat-resistant spatula, carefully loosen the sides and gently flip the crepe over. Cook for 1 minute. Repeat with the remaining butter and batter. In a small bowl, mix together the jam and vanilla extract. Using a 1-teaspoon measuring spoon, spoon 2 teaspoons of the jam mixture into the center of each crepe. Using the back of the spoon, spread the jam evenly over the crepes leaving a 1/2-inch border. Starting at the nearest edge, roll the crepes into tube shapes. Arrange the crepes on the prepared baking sheet and place in a warm oven, for up to 20 minutes, until ready to serve.
3) For the whipped cream: In a large mixing bowl, beat the heavy cream until it forms soft peaks. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla. Continue to beat until the cream holds stiff peaks.
4) Transfer the crepes to a serving platter and sprinkle with vanilla sugar. Serve with whipped cream and fresh raspberries.
