Red Velvet Crepes with Raspberry & Sweet Cream Cheese Filling

 

Red Velvet Crepes recipe at TidyMom.net



I’m a big fan of chocolate, so there’s no questioning my love for red velvet………it’s a given.  So, a week ago when I was making  red velvet pancakes, it occurred to me how delicious red velvet crepes might be!

 I was first turned on to making crepes when Jeffrey Saad made Nutella Crepes for us in Napa with Bush’s Beans a while back.

So I decided to use the same recipe and turn it into red velvet!

Making Red Velvet Crepes recipe at TidyMom.net

I used my KitchenAid blender (which I LOOVE!) to mix up all of the ingredients until they are nice and foamy, then Jeffrey says the key to great crepes is to let the batter sit, refrigerated, for about an hour before cooking.

I had some cream cheese topping left over from the pancakes, so I tossed some in a decorator bag and used a jumbo french decorating tip to pipe over a little Smucker’s Raspberry Preserves. – oh my word was that a good combo!

*you don’t have to be fancy though, you could just spoon the filling, or place some in a plastic baggy, snip the tip off and pipe filling over preserves (no decorator tip needed)

I then just folded both sides over, put them on a plate, melted a little Nutella in the microwave and drizzled over the top.  You could do the same with chocolate or even chocolate syrup if you want.

These were AMAZING!  You could taste the red velvet perfectly, the sweet cream cheese filling was not overly sweet, the raspberry preserves gave each bite an unexpected surprise and the Nutella just pushed it over the top. 

As rich as they may look and sound, I have to say, they weren’t that overly disgusting rich at all.  They would make a beautiful Valentines Day breakfast severed with some fruit or served as a dessert.

Yield: 12 large or 16 small

Red Velvet Crepes with Raspberry & Sweet Cream Cheese Filling

These Red Velvet crepes will satisfy a multitude of cravings with raspberry preserves and a kicked up sweet cream cheese filling to the Nutella drizzled over top.

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • pinch salt
  • 3 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • dash of vanilla
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1½ Tablespoon Cocoa Powder
  • red food color
  • extra butter to cook with
  • Raspberry Preserves
  • Sweet Cream Cheese Filling
  • Nutella (or chocolate)
  • Sweet Cream Cheese Filling
  • 16 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • ½ tsp lemon juice
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/ 2 cup ricotta
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp strong coffee
  • 1 tsp rum (optional)

Instructions

  1. Combine 2 eggs + 1 egg yolk, milk, water, salt, sugar, vanilla food color, and melted butter in a blender and pulse until foamy.
  2. Add flour and cocoa powder and pulse until smooth. Let the batter sit for an hour.
  3. Prepare Cream Cheese Filling by mixing all filling ingredients with mixer until well combined and smooth, set aside.
  4. After batter sits for one hour, heat a small non-stick pan. Add butter to coat. Pour 1 ounce of batter into the center of the pan and swirl to spread evenly. Cook until the top loses its gloss, which should only take a minute, then flip. The bottom should be golden. Cook the other side for about 15 seconds and then slide out onto a plate.
  5. Repeat with remaining batter.
  6. Prepare crepes by spreading a one inch wide strip of raspberry preserves down center of crepe, then top with cream cheese filling.
  7. Fold each side of crepe over filling and plate.
  8. Melt Nutella in microwave for about 30 seconds and drizzle over crepes.

    Those look absolutely delicious! I am a huge fan of chocolate and raspberry, so that combo sounds great with the red velvet crepes. You don’t have any problems with melting the Nutella in the microwave? I have wondered what would happen if I tried it since it says on the bottle not to microwave. Maybe they just mean not to microwave it in the bottle? I found you via the Made by you Monday Link Party.

    Question…… Could you use a box cake mix instead of a scratch recipe and still get the same taste?
