Maple Ricotta Stuffed Crepes – Tender and delicious crepes filled with a ricotta cheese and raisin filling, baked then topped with maple syrup. Make your next at-home-brunch the best one yet!
These stuffed crepes are fluffy little pillows full of creamy goodness that will keep you coming back for more. This is my Canadian/Romanian take on my favorite dessert. The maple syrup makes it Canadian, in case you’re wondering, and the rest is Romanian, simply because it’s a dessert I grew up with. That’s my reason and I’m sticking with it.
I have to admit that over the past couple months I’ve been making lots of crepes, I go through these phases every few years or so where I make crepes all the time, then nothing for another couple years. Normally we eat them with Nutella or just jam, but every once in a while I like to make something a little bit special like these ricotta stuffed crepes, and they are so delicious.
I actually wanted to bake these for a bit, only 10 minutes, just enough time for the outside to crisp up a bit, then while they’re hot pour some good maple syrup all over them, dust them with some icing sugar and you’re good to go. You could also serve this alongside a scoop of ice cream, if you so desire, but for me there’s enough sweetness from the maple syrup.
While I always serve this as a dessert, you could also have this for breakfast, however if I were to serve crepes for breakfast I’d probably stuff them with something more savory like ham and cheese or something. After all these years of making crepes, I still haven’t made a savory crepe. I don’t know why, probably because for me crepes were always a dessert, but that doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t enjoy a savory crepe, I probably would and love it.
One thing to note here is that I only made 5 crepes because that’s all I could fit in my 7×11 inch casserole dish, but you could use a 9×13 and just make more crepes, in a 9×13 you could probably fit 6 to 8 crepes, but you’ll need a bit more filling too.

Maple Ricotta Stuffed Crepes
For Ricotta filling
- 2 cups ricotta cheese
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 5 crepes
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- icing sugar for dusting, optional
- Preheat oven to 375 F degrees. Lightly grease a casserole dish with cooking spray (my dish is 7x11 inches).
- In a medium size bowl stir together the ricotta cheese, sugar, egg and raisins.
- Fill each crepe with 1/5 of the filling, about 3 tbsp, then fold the crepe like an envelope. Place the crepes in the prepared casserole dish and bake for 10 minutes.
- Remove the casserole dish from the oven and drizzle maple syrup over the crepes then dust with icing sugar if preferred.
- Serve while warm.
