Poppy Seed Crepes with Strawberries and Cream

  • Active Time 25m
  • Total Time 55m

Serves 6

Strawberries and fresh cream are essential, but the poppy seeds give these fruity dessert crepes a unique texture.


  • For the Crepes:
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, divided
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • For the Cream:
  • 1 cup heavy cream, whipped
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 2 cups hulled strawberries
  • Heavy cream, for serving



Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix well.


Place the eggs in a large bowl. Beat in the sugar, milk, flour, 2 tablespoons of the melted butter and the poppy seeds. Cover and stand for 30 minutes.

Heat a crepe pan or nonstick frying pan over moderate heat. Brush the bottom with some of the remaining melted butter. Pour 2 tablespoons of the crepe mixture into the pan and tilt to spread evenly and thinly. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until the top is just set and the bottom is golden brown. Turn over and cook other side for about 1 minute. Remove to a plate.

Repeat until all of the mixture is used, making at least 6 crepes. Stack the crepes, separating each piece with parchment or waxed paper. Keep the whole plate covered with a clean dish towel.


When all of the crepes are cooked, place 1 tablespoon of the vanilla cream on the edge of each crepe. Roll into a thin roll and turn the ends in to form a circle shape. Top each crepe with some of the hulled strawberries and drizzle with some of the cream.
