Lemon Cream Cheese
4ozcream cheeseor greek yoghurt. 115g
1/2lemonjuice only. About 1.5 tbsp
Make the Crepes
Mix flour with salt and cinnamon, add half of the milk and mix until you get a thick, lump free batter. Melt the butter and let it cool slightly before you add it to the batter. Add the rest of the milk, half a cup at the time before you mix in the eggs and vanilla. You want a thin batter. Let the batter rest for 15-20 minutes. I added just a touch of vanilla and cinnamon to a standard recipe, but that's optional.
(Wait with this step until you've made the fillings). Melt a tiny piece of butter in a medium hot pan. Pour just enough batter in the pan so it covers the entire pan. You might want to take the pan in your hand and give it a little swirl so the batter covers evenly.
Fry the crepes for about 1-2 minutes each side on medium-low heat. When the batter on the top has solidified, it's time to turn the crepe. Place the finished crepes in a kitchen towel so they keep the heat.
Lemon Cream Cheese Filling
Mix all the ingredients together. Give it a taste and place it in the refrigerator until the rest is done.
Mix all the ingredients apart from the cornstarch, into a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil.
In a bowl, mix the cornstarch with 1,5 tbsp water. Pour the cornstarch into the blackberries, continue to cook until it has thickened. Remember to stir a bit to smash the blackberries lightly. When you've gotten the desired consistency, remove from the heat and let it cool slightly.
Take one crepe and spread a thin layer of the lemon cream cheese and then blackberry jam/sauce, over the entire crepe. Roll it together, sprinke with a little powdered sugar, and dig in with a few fresh blackberries on the side.
* This recipe makes about 6 crepes, but it's always good to assume that the first crepe won't turn out great as you explore the temperature of the oven. I would say this recipe is enough for 2-3 people. The blackberry sauce is however enough for 4-6 (although we love our blackberry sauces!)Did you make it?
