These easy homemade blueberry crepes are filled with honey whipped cream and warm blueberry sauce. One of my family’s favorite weekend breakfast recipes!
You know how most mornings are meant for quick things, like cereal?
Well… some mornings should totally be without cereal. I think weekend-mornings should be welcomed with a stack of crepes. Especially these Blueberry Sauce Crepes. 😋
The Honey Whipped Cream should also make it to your mouth as soon as possible. I spooned half of it into the crepes and the other half straight to mah belleh. It was a Sunday… Sunday calories and carbs don’t count. 😉
What are Crepes?
Crepes are the European cousin of pancakes. Similar batter, but the main difference is that pancake batter has a raising agent – baking powder or baking soda – whereas Crepe batter does not include a raising agent. This is why pancakes are thick and fluffy, and crepes are thin and flat.
There are two types of Crepes; sweet and savory. They are served with a variety of fillings, from the simplest with only sugar or Nutella, to a delicious savory filling with soft brie or feta cheese.
Though Crepes may have originated in France, they’ve become popular in all parts of Europe and are often served in many restaurants across the world.
Ingredients for Crepes
A basic Crepes recipe contains milk, eggs, sugar, salt and flour. I love that they turn out thin, but don’t break apart, don’t have holes, and are so easy to work with.
- All-Purpose Flour
- Lemon juice
- Pure Vanilla Extract
- Cooking Spray
How to Make Blueberry Crepes
- Make the batter. I start by simply whisking the flour with the salt in a medium bowl and combine that with milk, eggs, lemon juice, and vanilla.
- Let it rest. Next, and what could be the most important part: let the batter rest for at least 15 minutes. Or, cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
- Prep your tools. Grease a nonstick pan with cooking spray and set over medium heat.
- Pour the batter. Grab 1/3 cup of the batter and add it to the heated pan; swirl the batter around so to completely cover bottom of pan. Tip: Use a measuring cup to measure and pour out the batter.
- Cook and Flip. Cook until edges curl up, about 2 minutes; flip and continue to cook for a minute, or until golden brown.
- Repeat! You should get about 12 to 14 crepes with this recipe.
Make the Blueberry Sauce
While the crepes are cooking you can make the blueberry sauce and honey whipped cream. These sound fancy but they are super simple!
- First, prepare the Blueberry Sauce. Combine the blueberries, sugar, lemon zest, and lemon juice in a nonstick frying pan. Cook over medium-low heat for 10 minutes or until juices are bubbly and fruit is tender.
- To make the Honey Whipped Cream, pour the heavy cream into a large mixing bowl and beat on medium speed until it thickens. Next, add honey and continue to beat until soft peaks form. Taste it and add more honey if you like a sweeter cream.
How To Fold Crepes
Crepes may be assembled 2 ways. Either rolling them up into a long crepe or folding them into triangles.
- To Roll the Crepes: Spread your honey whipped cream in a thin, even layer to the edges of the crepe. Use a knife or rubber spatula to smooth it out, and make sure that the filling reaches the very tip of the crepe. Add blueberry sauce and fold toward the center to cover the filling and roll away from you until you get to the end.
- Fold the Crepes in a Triangle: Spread a thin, even layer of the honey whipped cream over the crepe using a knife or rubber spatula to smooth it out, reaching the very tip of the crepe. Add blueberry sauce and fold it evenly in half. Take the folded crepe and fold it into three, creating a triangle.
How to Store Extras
- Fridge: Wrap completely cooled crepes with foil or plastic wrap and store in refrigerator for 2 to 3 days.
- Freezer: To freeze, separate crepe layers with wax paper and put in a tightly sealed container. Thaw them completely and reheat when ready to be enjoyed.
How to Reheat Crepes
- First, cover with a damp paper towel and microwave on 50 percent power for 1 minute.
- Then, fill and reheat by microwaving them one at a time in 30-second increments.
- You can also reheat the blueberry sauce on its own by adding a tablespoon of two of water while you warm it over medium-low heat.
Why are my crepes soggy?
- Make sure you’re working with a warm pan. Adding batter to a cool pan can result in soggy crepes.
- Serve crepes immediately or place a layer of waxed paper between each one to prevent them from getting soggy. If you stack them while they’re hot, the steam will make them all soggy.
Do I need a crepe maker to make crepes?
- No, you do not need to have a crepe maker. Use a nonstick skillet and spray the pan with nonstick cooking spray while making the crepes.

- Remove crepe from skillet and repeat with remaining batter.
- Coat pan with cooking spray in between each crepe.

Hi I was thinking of making these for dessert and was wondering if they can be put together ahead of time and kept in the frig or will that make the crepes soggy? Thanks
Super easy and delicious! Thanks for the great recipe!
Thank YOU! I am very glad you enjoyed it! 🙂
This is amazing! Thanks!
Thank YOU! 🙂
These crepes look amazing 🙂
Thank YOU, Jessica! 🙂
My first attempt with crepes and it was delicious. I used white whole wheat flour for the crepes and reduced the sugar for the blueberry compote. Also, substituted the whipped cream with Greek yogurt mixed with honey.
These sound amazing! Pinning now and I will be making them this weekend! Thank you 🙂
There is way too much lemon juice and zest in this recipe. I cut it way back and it was delicious.
I must really like a lot of lemon… hehe 😀 I guess I should probably put, “lemon juice to taste” in the recipe. Thank you for your feedback! I appreciate it.
Perfect amount of lemon for us! It really brings the taste to a new level of zing. This is my new favorite crepe recipe.
Tried these and so so good. For the milk I did 1 cup whole milk and 1 cup sugar free coconut milk. Batter very frothy, more so than I thought it should be. No matter, they were scrumptious no matter what. Refrigerating the remainder of batter for later.
I had to stop reading halfway through because of all the nonsensical banter about bombs, 9/11, and the author being too fat for jeans. Just list the recipe and give some tips. Jeez.
It’s so easy to be rude, especially when you get to hide behind a computer. If you’re looking for JUST recipes, go to the food network site. Nothing to read about there, JUST recipes. THIS, however, is a blog. It’s where I LOG my own thoughts, opinions, AND recipes.
That was such a nasty comment! I will never understand why so many people are unable to be civil. Anyway, any tips for making the palečenke (crepes). Mine never spread evenly in the pan and look like I’ve run over them with a lawnmower. I can’t compete with my M-I-L! Hers are perfect.
I can’t wait to try these tomorrow!!
I live overseas, and it can be very difficult/ expensive to get fresh blueberries, could I use frozen?
I cooked these this week and used frozen blueberries. They were outstanding! Such a good and very easy recipe!
Way easier & quicker than I expected; I also made them with Trader Joe’s all-purpose whole wheat flour and came out fine. 4 tablespoons of honey was a LOT for me, and I’m usually a fan of supersweet- I settled on 2 tbs +1tsp, but if you’re unsure I would recommend dialing it back to start and adding more to taste.
Considered adding bourbon to the whipped cream but decided it was too early… there’s always breakfast for dinner though!
I want to dive right into that blueberry sauce!!
Honey whipped cream? Heck yes!
This is definitely my kind of breakfast! Love the blueberry sauce and the honey whipped cream is perfect! Gorgeous pics – making me very hungry!
What time should I be over for breakfast? These crepes look so amazing, and I’m so chicken to try and make them for fear of sticking on my pan. So how ’bout I just come over and you feed me?
I was worried about the pan sticking too, but a little cooking spray fixed that right up! Go forth, be fearless!
I want to eat the screen! 🙂
I have been waiting for the hot weather to be over…but I now I’m kind of sad…. Love all the fresh berries and fruits. 🙂
These crepes look so good!
Beautiful crepes and the blueberry and cream filling just makes it extraordinary.
I am going to make a batch soon as my half Hungarian-half Romanian nephew has expressed a craving. 🙂
These are really beautiful Kate. Love that sauce and the cream together I bet it’s heavenly. And what a crazy, scary time for you at the airport. OMG. Good that you can laugh about it now! I’m constantly telling my teenage boys to behave themselves in public places. Will definitely be telling them about this one!
Lol! Bel Biv Devoe – talk about a blast from the past. 😀 I’m almost always singled out at airports…maybe it’s my super-short hair and the fact that I look like a sourpuss (according to my mom). :p
Crêpes have always been a beloved treat, I’ve no idea why they’re not on the blog yet. Yours look scrumptious!!
So I know what I’ll be making for breakfast tomorrow with my leftover strawberries…..
Ooh! Love these blueberry crepes with that honey whipped cream, Kate. Heavenly! You’re so like me…listening, moving to the groove and singing in the kitchen whilst baking. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful Labor Day holiday weekend! Pinning!
Ive been wanting to make crepes for awhile – I’v actually had a craving for them. Yours w/ the bb sauce are just to die for. Pinned!
Dying over that blueberry sauce! Now I will be dreaming of these crepes :).
