Hey y’all! I’m coming at you today with an amazing brunch dish that would be absolutely perfect for Mother’s Day! When it comes to the classic lineup of sweet breakfast dishes – pancakes, waffles, and french toast – what’s your favorite?? I feel like I’m always wavering between the three. I’ll most often order pancakes when I’m out for brunch, mostly because a stack of light, sweet cakes, preferably filled with blueberries and topped with butter and maple syrup, is hard to beat. I’m usually disappointed with restaurant-style waffles, but my mom makes an absolutely incredible yeasted variation that’s one of my favorite meals in the world. And a great, custardy slice of french toast – especially if it’s made with challah bread! – can be amazing, and takes me right back to childhood, since my dad would always make this classic breakfast for me and my brother on weekend mornings.
But today, we’re adding an often overlooked fourth option to the mix: homemade crepes! Here’s the thing with crepes: they might actually come out on top of waffles, french toast, and even pancakes! My reasoning, in three simple bullet points: 1) Crepes are seriously easy to make. Like, at least five times easier than pancakes or even french toast. 2) With crepes, the filling options are absolutely endless. You could go savory – cheese, ham, spinach, roasted vegetables; or sweet – sugar, cinnamon, lemon juice, fresh berries, ricotta cheese, honey, NUTELLA ❤ 3) Crepes remind me of Paris. Paris = love. So there 🙂
Once you perfect the basic crepe making process – blend the ingredients, let rest, pour into a heated pan, and swirl – your eyes will be opened to an entirely new world of delicious breakfast options. I promise you that this process is so much easier than it might first appear. Give yourself a couple of practice rounds and you’ll have perfectly delicious crepes, every time, in no time. Next, it’s time to choose your toppings. Today, we’re trying out an absolutely delicious creamy, tart, and sweet concoction made of rich mascarpone cheese, softly whipped cream, and fresh lemon. This filling pairs perfectly with the light, slightly sweet crepes. I love to add a sprinkling of raspberries on top for color and sweetness, and a drizzle of honey wouldn’t hurt, either. I hope you’ll try out this crepe recipe, and if you’re looking for a brunch idea for Mother’s Day, I know that your mom would absolutely love and appreciate this dish, too!
