Crepes (Clatite)

Crepes

Well this is my favorite dessert ever, probably because as a child I ate this a lot. I’ve been making these for as long as I can remember.  They are easy to make, and the best part is that you can fill them with anything you like.  My favorite filling is nutella, or just any plain old jam, raspberry, strawberry, blueberry, apricot, whatever you have in your fridge.  I’m making them now because my husband bought this great blueberry Saskatoon jam, and it would be a waste not to make some crepes for it.  Another way these crepes are served, is with a cheese filling inside usually made from ricotta, eggs, sugar, sour cream and raisins and folded into squares then baked for a few minutes, but for today I’m sticking with the awesome Saskatoon blueberry jam.

These crepes are very versatile, they could even be made savory and filled with chicken, or mushrooms or anything you can imaging.  No matter which way you make them, they are simply delicious.

Instructions:

  1. Mix all the ingredients in a mixer really well and let sit for a few minutes.

  4. Repeat steps until you've prepared all the crepes.
  5. When you're done use your favorite jam and spread about a tsp of jam per crepe, then roll the crepe.

    For filling you can also try: one package of cream cheese (room temperature so it mixes easier), 1 container of cool whip (thawed), about 1 – 2 tsps of lemon juice, a bit of lemon zest (rind) shredded up, a tsp of vanilla extract and 3/4 cup of confectioners sugar! I add chopped up strawberries to my filling, but the kids like it without the strawberries. I have made these for family and friends for years. One of our favorites!

    I grew up eating these clatite (Romanian crepes) I make them often for my family. This is the same recipe that my “Buna” from Romania used! Great to see them on this blog! I use cottage cheese with sugar and vanilla as a filling also. Can’t make them fast enough!

      Hi Anne,
      Never tried cottage cheese, but I have made them with ricotta cheese, but I have to admit our favorite crepes are filled with Nutella, they don’t last long. :)
