Strawberry Crepe

I had so much fun making crepes for the first time that I had to do it again. This time, however, I wanted to make sweet crepes. They say that if you don’t succeed the first time you should try, try again. And that is so true. My first crepes were fat and big, somebody even confused them with pancakes :(

However, these other crepes were smaller and a lot thinner and it didn’t take me 2 attempts to make them right. They didn’t brake or stick to the pan and, best of all, they turned out delicious. Since I only used 5 strawberries to decorate my Party Cake, I used the rest for the filling of the crepes. This is what I did:

Using my QuickChef (one of my favorite Tupperware items) I chopped the strawberries and set them apart.

With the whip attachment I whipped 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream with 2 TBSP of confectioner’s sugar and some vanilla extract. When the cream was think I added the strawberries and whipped until they blended with the cream.

I used this recipe to make the crepes again. I then filled them with the strawberry cream and topped them with some confectioner’s sugar and ground cinnamon.

Aren’t they pretty? I have conquered another one of my kitchen fears, crepes. I know what some of you might be thinking, wasn’t he supposed to be on a diet? Well, I am, but it is not a traditional diet. I am just cutting down on the amount of food that I eat (this was Jon’s plate, I just ate 2 of them) and I am incorporating more vegetables and fruits to my meals. But most importantly, I am exercising every day, but that is a topic for another post.

Buen provecho!
