These easy homemade blueberry crepes are my family’s favorite breakfast recipe! We know most mornings are meant for quick things like cereal or protein oatmeal. But weekend mornings should be welcomed with a stack of Blueberry Crepes, topped with blueberry sauce and filled with honey whipped cream!

What are Crepes?

Crepes are the European cousin of pancakes. The batter is similar, 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 various fillings, from the simplest with only sugar or Nutella to a delicious savory filling with soft brie or feta cheese.

Ingredients for Blueberry Crepes

A basic Crepes recipe features milk, eggs, 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.

  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • cooking spray

How to Make Blueberry Crepes

  1. Make the batter. Whisk the flour with the salt in a medium bowl and combine that with milk, eggs, lemon juice, and vanilla.
  2. Let it rest. Next, let the batter rest for at least 15 minutes. Or cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
  3. Prep your tools. Grease a nonstick pan with cooking spray and set over medium heat.
  4. Pour the batter. Take 1/3 cup of the batter and add it to the heated pan; swirl the batter around to completely cover the bottom of the pan. Tip: Use a measuring cup to measure and pour out the batter.
  5. Cook and Flip. Cook until the edges curl up, about 2 minutes; flip and continue to cook for a minute or until golden brown. 
  6. Repeat. You should get about 12 to 14 crepes with this recipe.
  7. Make 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.
  8. 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 two 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.

Recipe Tips

  • Batter Consistency: The batter should be thin, similar to heavy cream. If it’s too thick, your crêpes may end up more like pancakes. You can adjust the consistency by adding a little more milk or water.
  • Rest the Batter: Allow the batter to rest for at least 15 minutes before cooking. You can also refrigerate the batter for up to 2 days.
  • Preheat the Pan: Ensure your pan is warm before adding the batter. Soggy crepes often result from pouring batter into a cool pan.
  • Use a Ladle or Measuring Cup: For consistent sizes and thickness, use a ladle or a measuring cup to add the batter to the pan.
  • Swirl the Pan: Immediately after adding the batter, lift and tilt the pan in a circular motion to spread the batter thinly and evenly across the surface.
  • Cook on Medium Heat: Too high heat can burn the crêpes, and too low heat can make them tough. Medium heat is generally ideal.
  • No Crepe Maker Needed: You don’t require a specific crepe maker. A nonstick skillet works fine. Remember to spray the pan with nonstick cooking spray when making the crepes.
  • Serving Tips: Serve crepes immediately for the best taste. If you need to stack them, place a layer of waxed paper between each crepe to prevent sogginess. Avoid stacking hot crepes directly on each other as the steam can make them soggy.
  • Experiment with Fillings: Crêpes are versatile. Feel free to experiment with different fillings, both sweet, like fruit, chocolate, or whipped cream, and savory, like cheese, ham, or spinach.

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. 
  • To reheat: First, cover the crepe with a damp paper towel and microwave for 20 seconds. Then, fill the crepes and reheat by microwaving them one at a time in 30-second increments.

Total Time 40 minutes


For the Crepes
  • cups all-purpose flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • cooking spray
For the Blueberry Sauce
  • 1 pint blueberries
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
For the Honey Whipped Cream
  • 1 cup cold heavy whipping cream
  • 4 tablespoons honey


  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour and salt; set aside.
  • In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk together milk, lemon juice, vanilla, and beaten eggs.
  • Gradually add the milk mixture to the flour mixture, whisking until completely smooth and no lumps appear. Set aside for 15 minutes. You can also cover it and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
  • In the meantime, combine the blueberries, sugar, lemon zest, and lemon juice in a nonstick frying pan.
  • Cook over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, for 10 to 12 minutes or until the juices are bubbly and the fruit is tender. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Add the cold heavy cream to a large mixing bowl and beat on medium speed until it thickens. Add honey and continue to beat until soft peaks form. Taste it and add more honey if you like it sweeter. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
Make the Crepes
  • Lightly grease a large nonstick frying pan or a crepe pan with cooking spray and set over medium heat.
  • Add 1/3 cup batter to the pan and swirl to cover the bottom of the pan completely.
  • Cook until the edges of the crepe curl up, and the underside of the crepe is golden brown; about 2 minutes. Flip the crepe and continue to cook for 1 more minute or until lightly browned.
  • Remove the crepe from the skillet and repeat with the remaining batter, coating the pan with cooking spray between each crepe.
  • Spread some of the honey whipped cream over each crepe. Roll or fold the crepe in a triangle and top with the blueberry sauce.
  • Serve.


  • Batter Consistency: Thin batter is key; it should be as thick as heavy cream. Add a little more milk if it’s too thick.
  • Rest the Batter: Rest the batter for at least 15 minutes before cooking.
  • Make Ahead: Make the batter up to 2 days ahead of time and keep it covered in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  • Preheat the Pan: Warm the pan before cooking.
  • Swirl the Pan: Spread the batter evenly by swirling the pan after pouring in the batter.
  • Medium Heat: Cook crêpes over medium heat to prevent burning.
  • Fillings: Experiment with sweet and savory fillings to find what you like.

  1. 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

  2. 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.

    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.

      1. Perfect amount of lemon for us! It really brings the taste to a new level of zing. This is my new favorite crepe recipe.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

      1. 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.

  6. I live overseas, and it can be very difficult/ expensive to get fresh blueberries, could I use frozen?

    1. 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!

  8. 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!

  10. 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!

  11. 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!

  13. 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!!
