Berry Crepes with Blackberry Whipped Cream

Is it an omelette? Is it a pancake? A crepe can be filled with whatever you choose, and it always taste good. Savory is my favorite kind of crepe - goat cheese, asparagus, roasted red pepper.....but most people are used to sweet crepes, so sweet crepes are what I will make! And you can never go wrong with fresh berries and whipped cream.  I used a standard crepe recipe from "the Joy of Cooking" cookbook, and then went from there! So this morning I made a few crepes, and was even able to same some for my husband....

Berry Crepes with Blackberry Whipped Cream

1 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup warm water
 4 eggs
1/4 cup melted butter
1 tablespoon sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt

1 cup strawberries
1 cup blueberries
1 cup blackberries
1 cup whipping cream
3 tablespoons sugar

In a small bowl add 1/2 cup blackberries and 3 tablespoons sugar. Using the back of a fork, mash berries  until almost smooth. Set aside. 

Add 1 cup of whipping cream to a large bowl, and mashed blackberries. Using a whisk, mix until stiff peaks form. A Kitchen-Aid works amazing here :)

To make crepes, mix milk, flour, eggs, butter, sugar, salt, and water together in a bowl. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.  

While refrigerating, slice strawberries and add to bowl with remaining blackberries and blueberries. 
Stir to combine. 

Heat a large pan over medium heat. Grease pan with butter or olive oil. Pour 1/2 - 3/4 cup of mixture into hot pan and slowly swirl until evenly distributed. Cook for 1-2 minutes and then flip, cooking for 1 more minute

Place one crepe on a large plate. Now you can serve like a taco, fold into fourths, eat like a pancake, any way you want! I like to eat it like a taco, where you fill with berries, then fold thirds over. How ever you chose, just combine your crepe and your berries,  and top with a heaping spoonful of blackberry whipped cream.
