Crepes with Berries Recipe

In Providence, Utah, Leica Merriam greets the day in a luscious way--with homemade crepes served with berries and yogurt. "I found this low-fat recipe in a magazine and made it even quicker and lighter," she writes. "The crepe batter whips up so easily in the blender."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + chilling Cook: 20 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 cups blueberries, blackberries and/or raspberries
  • 1 cup fat-free milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cornmeal
  • 16 teaspoons reduced-sugar apricot preserves
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) reduced-fat reduced-sugar vanilla yogurt

Directions

  • 1. Sprinkle sugar over berries; gently toss to mix. Cover and refrigerate. In a blender, combine the milk, egg, egg whites and extracts; cover and process until blended. Add the flour and cornmeal; cover and process until blended. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • 2. Coat a 7-in. skillet with cooking spray. Heat skillet over medium heat. Pour about 2 tablespoons batter into the center of skillet. Lift and tilt pan to evenly coat bottom. Cook until top appears dry; turn and cook 15-20 seconds longer. Remove to a plate; keep warm. Repeat with remaining batter, coating with additional cooking spray as needed.
