Chef Jessica: Sunshine Crepes

cookingbrightcom's picture
Chef Jessica Brighty on the WJXT Morning Show with Bruce Hamilton, Lilly, and Haley. Together they make "Sunshine Crepes"- a great morning treat with fresh fruit and yogurt. Crepes, or French pancakes, are very thin compared to ordinary pancakes; which makes them fun to fill. I've altered the standard recipe to make them healthier. Crepes are fun to let the kids help fill for a yummy, gourmet, family breakfast or dessert. Try different fillings or toppings for variety (they are really good with ice cream).
For the crepes
  Quick oats 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  All purpose flour 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Kosher salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Double acting baking powder 1 Teaspoon
  Confectioners sugar 2 Tablespoon
  Eggs 2 Large
  Skim milk 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Orange zest 1 Teaspoon, finely grated
  Canola oil 2 Tablespoon (or cooking spray)
For the filling
  Fresh strawberries 2 Cup (32 tbs), sliced
  Orange zest 1 Tablespoon, finely grated
  Low fat vanilla yogurt 1 Cup (16 tbs)

1. In a blender put the oats. Blend till fine. Add flour, salt, baking powder, sugar and continue to blend. Put the eggs, milk and orange zest and blend till it forms a smooth batter.
2. In a small bowl mix yogurt, berries and zest. Set aside.

3. Heat a non stick frying pan on medium heat. Grease it with oil.
4. Pour about 1/4 cup of the batter. Swirl the pan slowly to coat the pan evenly. Let it cook till bubbles appear on the top and batter appears to dry. Flip it gently and cook the either side for a few more seconds.
5. Transfer into a plate. Repeat this till all the batter is over.

6. In a serving plate, place the crepe. Put a scoop of the yogurt berry mixture on it. Roll it and place it seam side down. Garnish with powdered sugar, whipped cream and fresh berries and serve.

The prepared crepes can be stored for around 2 days in the refrigerator.
