What You'll Need
  • For the crepes:
  • 3 eggs
  • 300 milliliters milk
  • 125 grams all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder
  • 2 tablespoons margarine
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • Butter for greasing
  • For the filling:
  • 300 grams strawberries
  • 250 milliliters heavy whipping cream
  • 100 grams dark chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons margarine
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. For the crepes: In a bowl, put the flour, salt, sugar and mix well. Melt the margarine in the microwave; set aside.
  2. In an electric mixer, beat on medium speed the eggs and the milk. Reduce the mixer speed to low and add the flour mixture. Then, add the vanilla powder, the melted margarine and beat for 2 to 3 minutes until well incorporated.
  3. Grease a non-stick frying pan with some butter and heat over low heat. When the butter starts melting, pour small portions of the dough with a ladle until cover completely the bottom. When the first side starts to turn slightly golden, flip with a spatula and cook about a minute or until golden. Repeat the process until the dough runs out.
  4. Place the crepes on a plate and set aside.
  5. For the filling: In an electric mixer, beat the cream (150 ml / (1/2 cup and 2 tablespoons)) together with the powdered sugar and the vanilla extract until stiff peaks form (don't overbeat the cream).
  6. Place the chocolate broken into pieces in a bowl together with the margarine and melt in the microwave. Remove from microwave, add the cream (100 ml / 6 3/4 tablespoons) and stir with a fork until a creamy mixture.
  7. Wash, remove the stem from the strawberries and cut them into pieces. Place small portions of strawberries and whipped cream on each crepe and roll them over the filling. Garnish with the chocolate and serve.
