Taste Holland: Lemon Blueberry Crepes

You know I’m a fan of crepes.  Chocolate crepes with berries and buttermilk syrup have been one of my family’s favorite super-special breakfast dishes for a while, now.  (Click over for the recipes:  Chocolate Crepes with Rasberry Cream and Chocolate Crepes with Buttermilk Syrup.)

Chocolate Crepes

Last week, for Father’s Day breakfast, I decided to switch things up a bit, and came up with a new way to serve crepes:  Lemon Blueberry Crepes with Buttermilk Syrup.

Making them was a cinch.  I start with a basic crepe recipe.  (I prefer to use this one from Better Homes & Gardens, and I usually double it for my family of five.)  Don’t be intimidated by crepes–if you have an electric griddle and a measuring cup, they are no harder to cook than pancakes!  (Find out how I cook mine here.)

Once I’ve cooked up a few crepes, there are only a few remaining ingredients:

Lemon curd (Trader Joe’s is the best I’ve ever tried!)

Fresh Blueberries

Whipped Cream

I like to spread a layer of lemon curd over a crepe, and put a little whipped cream over that.  It’s not necessary to warm the lemon curd–especially if you at spreading it over a crepe that is hot off the griddle.  It tastes great served warm or cold.  I top the cream generously with blueberries, and roll up the crepe.

It’s almost impossible to eat just one crepe!  Two on a plate is perfect.  I like to dust them with a bit of powdered sugar before I drizzle buttermilk syrup over them.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again:  buttermilk syrup is divine.  It’s sweet and tangy and delicious on anything.  You can find my recipe for it here.

Of course, once the buttermilk syrup is dripping off the crepes, it doesn’t hurt to add a more whipped cream and some extra berries for good measure!

These lemon blueberry crepes are a delectable breakfast treat.  The tart lemon curd combined with the sweet berries and syrup is a perfectly lovely flavor combination.  It’s very summery.  I’m determined to try the lemon curd on crepes with a few other berry combinations:  lemon raspberry crepes and lemon strawberry crepes….so good!
