Red Velvet Crepes


Red Velvet Week continues! Today, I’m sharing a recipe for these delicious and decadent Red Velvet Crepes, because let’s face it – every Valentine’s Day needs to start with red velvet! Just think – the perfect Valentine’s Day breakfast in bed!!

I think these red velvet crepes would be perfect for any special morning.

If you’ve never made crepes before, you’ll find out that crepes aren’t as hard as you think. The trick is to not use very much batter – you want crepes that are really thin.

These red velvet crepes aren’t super sweet on their own, but once you fill them with the cream cheese filling and top them with a chocolate drizzle, they have the perfect amount of sweetness.

No I know what I want for breakfast on Valentine’s Day!

Red velvet crepes are made from scratch and then filled with a simple cheesecake filling. A chocolate drizzle finishes it for a decadent finish.
Serves: 6 servings
Ingredients
Crepes:
  • 1½ cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1½ tablespoons sifted cocoa powder
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1¼ cups milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons red food coloring
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
Cream Cheese Filling:
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
Chocolate Drizzle:
  • 2 ounces chocolate chips
  • 2½ tablespoons cream
Instructions
Make the crepes:
  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder. Mix well; set aside.
  2. In another large bowl, combine the buttermilk, milk, egg, vanilla, sugar, red food coloring and melted butter. Whisk until smooth.
  3. Combine the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients. Stir until smooth.
  4. Heat an 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. When the skillet is hot, ladle a small amount of the batter into the pan. I found for my pan, the perfect amount was just under ¼ cup of batter. Lifting the pan off of the heat, swirl the batter around the bottom of the pan, coating the whole bottom of the pan. You want it to be as thin as possible, while coating the whole pan. Return to the heat and cook until the batter has lost it’s shine, then flip and cook on the opposite side.
  5. Remove from the pan and keep warm in an oven set to 200°F. Repeat with the remaining batter.
Make the cream cheese filling:
  1. In a bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Beat in the powdered sugar and the milk.
Make the chocolate drizzle:
  1. Place the chocolate chips in a bowl. In a separate bowl, heat the cream in the microwave until boiling. Pour over the chocolate chips and let sit for a couple of mintues. Stir together until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth.
Assemble the crepes:
  1. Fill each crepe with a bit of the cream cheese mixture. Roll up, sift powdered sugar on top, and then drizzle on chocolate. Enjoy!
