Do you know what I love about crepes? Crepes are versatile. Sweet or savory. Dessert, dinner, brunch or even as an appetizer, the crepe possibilities are endless. My girls love when I treat them to a batch of Nutella & Caramelized Banana Crepes! Sweet and oh so decadent, they’re perfect for dessert and occasionally we may even have them for breakfast. These strawberry ricotta crepes are definitely lighter than those chocolate banana filled crepes but still wonderfully sweet and tempting.

These delicate crepes are filled with lightly sweetened ricotta then topped off with a fresh strawberry compote. They make a wonderful summer dessert that’s a breeze to put together while entertaining or even as a weeknight treat. They aren’t over the top sweet so they also work as a wonderful morning dish. The fresh strawberries are so wonderful when combined with the creamy ricotta, you’ll want more than one.

Strawberry Ricotta Crepes

Delicate crepes frilled with creamy, lightly sweetened ricotta then topped with fresh strawberry compote.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups strawberries, hulled and coarsely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Grand Marnier, optional
  • 2 cups part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 2/3 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

Instructions

  1. In a medium pot, combine strawberries, sugar and Grand Marnier (if using.) Place over medium heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until strawberries begin to break down. Smoosh them a bit with a fork. Continue simmering until syrupy. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat together ricotta and powdered sugar with a hand mixer or whisk. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar and salt. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, lightly whisk eggs. Slowly, incorporate the dry ingredients alternating with the milk. Mix until smooth. Stir in the olive oil.
  5. Spray an 8-inch frying pan with nonstick cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Add 1/4 cup of the crepe batter to the pan and turn in a circular motion, evenly distributing the batter in the pan. Cook until the outside edge of the crepe is lightly golden; then flip the crepe and cook the other side, about 2 minutes total.
  6. Slide the cooked crêpe onto a plate. Dollop ricotta down center of crepe then gently roll, seam side down. Top with strawberry compote. Repeat with remaining batter, ricotta and strawberries.
