Lemon Blackberry Tortilla French Toast

This twist on crepes is tart-sweet with a creamy lemon filling and juicy blackberries. Think of this as a cross between thin French toast, light crepes and crispy quesadillas. —Arlene Erlbach, Morton Grove, Illinois
  • Total Time
    Prep: 25 min. Cook: 5 min./batch
  • Makes
    6 servings


  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 6 tablespoons lemon curd, divided
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 6 flour tortillas (6 inches)
  • 1-1/3 cups fresh blackberries
  • 1/4 cup seedless blackberry spreadable fruit
  • Additional grated lemon zest, optional


  • In a small bowl, beat cream cheese, 3 tablespoons lemon curd, lemon zest and extract until fluffy. Set aside.
  • In a shallow bowl, whisk eggs, cream and remaining lemon curd until blended; stir in poppy seeds. In a large cast-iron or other heavy skillet, heat 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Dip both sides of a tortilla in egg mixture, allowing excess to drip off. Place in skillet; toast until golden brown, 2-3 minutes on each side. Remove to a wire rack. Repeat with remaining tortillas, adding butter to grease the skillet as needed.
  • Spread about 3 tablespoons cream cheese mixture over each tortilla to within 1/4 in. of edges. Fold tortillas in half over filling. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine blackberries and spreadable fruit; microwave, covered, at 50% power until warmed, 2-3 minutes, stirring once. Serve with tortillas and, if desired, additional lemon zest.

    These took a little extra time because I made my own lemon curd and tortillas. I substituted raspberry spreadable fruit and blueberries because that's what I had on hand, and they were delicious.
