Crepes with Whipped Orange Ricotta & Fresh Strawberry Sauce


For the Crepes:
1½ cups flour
2 eggs
⅛ tsp baking soda
2½ cups milk
2 Tbsp powdered sugar
For the Strawberry Sauce
1 lb strawberries, chopped
¼ cup water
¼ cup sugar
For the Sweet Orange Ricotta:
8 oz ricotta
zest from 1 orange
2 Tbsp fresh squeezed orange juice
2 Tbsp powdered sugar


Mix all the ingredients for the crepe batter together. Whisk until well combined and smooth.
In a small pot, over medium low heat, add the strawberries, water and sugar.
Cook the strawberries down until the mixture has thickened to a loose jam.
In a small bowl, stir together the ricotta, orange zest, orange juice and powdered sugar.
To cook the crepes, warm a large non stick pan over medium low heat. Spray with non stick spray and pour about ⅓ cup of the batter to the center of the pan. Immediately rotate the pan until the batter is spread out thin and evenly.
They cook quickly. Once very lightly browned flip the crepe over using a flexible spatula and cook on the other side again until just lightly golden.
Place the crepe on a plate and cover with foil as you continue cooking the remaining crepes to keep them warm. Be sure to spray between each crepe to prevent sticking.
To serve, lay a crepe out, smear a thin layer of ricotta on top. Fold in half twice to get a triangular shape or you can just roll up the crepe. Top with some of the warm strawberry sauce.


love the weekends! I mean who doesn’t, right? I love the extra family time, no alarm clock going off and delicious extra special breakfasts like this one! Crepes with Whipped Orange Ricotta & Fresh Strawberry Sauce are absolutely spectacular! I can’t even describe to you how much we enjoyed these beautiful light crepes, the slightly sweetened whipped orange ricotta and to top it all off a sweet fresh strawberry sauce. This is one perfect dish and would make for a special treat on Valentines Day too!

Heres what I really love about these Crepes with Whipped Orange Ricotta & Fresh Strawberry Sauce…. everything!!! The crepes themselves are really light and the batter is simply flour, milk, eggs, baking soda and powdered sugar. Have you ever had a sweetened ricotta? It is really wonderful! I love the brightness that the fresh orange juice and orange zest add to the creamy mild Italian cheese. Pairing all that with a fresh strawberry sauce finishes this dish off wonderfully!
