Peach Crepes

My mother-in-law passed this recipe on to me. The special ingredient, almond extract, gives it a distinctive, delicious flavor.

  • Makes
    8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • FILLING:
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • 8 medium peaches, peeled and thinly sliced (about 4-1/2 cups), divided
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • Whipped cream and ground nutmeg, optional

Directions

  • In a blender, combine the milk, eggs, flour, sugar, butter and vanilla. Cover and process until smooth. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch. Gradually whisk in water until smooth. Stir in 2 cups peaches and butter. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat. Stir in almond extract and remaining peaches. Cover and refrigerate.
  • Heat a lightly greased 8-in. nonstick skillet over medium heat; pour about 2 tablespoons batter into the center of skillet. Lift and tilt pan to coat bottom evenly. Cook until top appears dry; turn and cook 15-20 seconds longer. Remove to a wire rack. Repeat with remaining batter, greasing skillet as needed. When cool, stack crepes with waxed paper or paper towels in between.
  • Spoon filling over crepes; roll up. Top with whipped cream and nutmeg if desired.

    I just got an electric crepe maker and used this recipe. It turned out wonderful. Thank you for making my first time using the crepe maker great.

    These were good. I used thawed (from frozen of course) peaches (12 oz. pkg.) and cut the recipe in half and used just over 1/4 cup sugar. They were still extremely sweet, but everyone enjoyed them. I will use the dough recipe again, but will come up with a fruit recipe of my own that is a bit less sweet.

    These are the most delicious crepes I have ever had! I will not go to Ihop no more when I get hungry for crepes. I used raspberry and strawberry jam for a quick and easy filling. Thanks so much for sharing.
