Celebration Strawberry Crepes for #SundaySupper

Sunday Supper Movement Did you know that it's a #SundaySupper celebration today?  It is a big day as the #SundaySupper movement turns two years old and we are having a big party.

The #SundaySupper movement was founded and started by Isabel a.k.a. Family Foodie.  The first event was on It all started on January 8th, 2012 with a Progressive Virtual Dinner  - take a look and see how the #SundaySupper movement has grown. Our host for the big Party today is no other than the amazing Liz who is also known as That Skinny Chick Can Bake.   Thank you so much for hosting!

I first met Isabel on Twitter and for a long time was watching from the sidelines as I was making #SundaySupper at my house.  Then we engaged a little bit on Twitter, and first I made Isabel's {s}mashed potatoes, then her carrot cake; I finally got over myself  and joined the first #SundaySupper even on September 2nd, 2012 with Vegan Caprese Salad.  Through this group I have made amazing friends, learned so much more than I have thought possible about cooking, expanded our culinary horizon, and have become a better cook, writer, blogger.  So I want to say thank you, Isabel for founding the #SundaySupper movement, your persistence, and vision.  You are just amazing!!!

Now on to the big party - I am bringing Celebration Strawberry Crepes for breakfast.  These are - as always dairy free - and delicious.  I used my favorite strawberries - yes, Hood strawberries - which picked last year and am just so thrilled that we still have some left in the freezer.  These crepes are really quite simple to make - don't let the description length be a deterrent -  they are  festive and delicious for brunch with a glass of sparkly...

Celebration Strawberry Crepes {Pancakes}
  • 1-1/4 C flour
  • 1-1/4 C Almond milk {or other milk of your choosing}
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 eggs
  • Canola Oil for baking
  1. In a bowl combine flour and salt, then
  2. while constantly stirring to avoid clumps add milk. 
  3. Add the eggs - one at a time and beat them into the batter.  The batter should be smooth without any clumps.
  4. Let batter rest for about 20 minutes
  5. Heat oil in a pan {I use a coated pan} and when hot add batter {depending on the size of your pan it is about 1/4 C} to the pan.  Move the pan so that the batter fills the entire surface of the pan. It should be a thin layer of batter. 
  6. Bake at medium heat; when the bottom side is done {it will be easy to lift the pancake} flip the pancake and bake the second side.  When the second side is done, remove the pancake from the pan, set aside on a plate and cover to keep them warm.
  7. Repeat step 5 - 6 until all of the batter has been used up
Strawberry Filling
  •  3 C frozen whole strawberries
  •  2 Tablespoons sugar
  •  1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  •  4 Tablespoons water
  1. Place the frozen strawberries, sugar, lemon juice and water in a pan.  Cover
  2. Heat gently while keeping the lid on.
  3. Remove from heat when strawberries are warm.
  4. Adjust sugar to taste
Serving
  • Baked Pancakes {crepes}
  • Strawberry Filling
  • Powdered Sugar {optional}
  1. Lay pancake {crepes} flat and scoop strawberries into the middle.  Roll the pancake up and place on serving platter.
  2. Repeat until all are filled
  3. Drizzle with
    some strawberry syrup and drizzle with powdered sugar
