Egg Free Strawberry Crepes

Deedley Dee!  Crepes!!  I was so proud of myself when I first made egg free crepes.  I still am every time I make them.  They were easier than I thought they would be too.  Once you get them filled and rolled up, you seriously can't even tell they don't have eggs in them. My hubs, who is a savory-breakfast-kind-of-guy, informed me that he likes these crepes.  One sweet breakfast food that he does like!  :)

{Update:  check out my revised crepe recipe that does not use flax seed}

Egg Free Strawberry Crepes

1 cup flour
¼ tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
2 tsp sugar
1-1/4 cup milk
1 flax "egg"
Stawberries, fresh or frozen, sliced 
Strawberry sauce (recipe below)
Whipped topping (recipe below)

Mix 1 tbsp flax with 3 tbsp hot water and let stand 5 minutes.  Meanwhile, mix flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.  Stir in the milk and flax to the dry ingredients and mix until smooth. Lightly grease a 10-inch nonstick skillet and heat on medium heat.  Pour ¼ cup batter onto skillet and quickly rotate to spread batter around the skillet.  Cook until lightly browned, about 20-30 seconds, flip and cook 15-20 seconds longer.  Yields about 8 crepes. 

*Tip- the crepe batter should be thin enough that it easily spreads and thins when you rotate the skillet.  If you find you are having trouble, add a few tablespoons of water to the batter to thin it a little more.  Try to keep the crepes thin and don't overbake them.

Place strawberries down the center of each crepe and roll up. If using fresh, you may mix with a little bit of sugar or honey and let sit for a few minutes to create a "syrup".  If using frozen, thaw first. Top with strawberry sauce and whipped topping.

Strawberry Sauce
From Our Best Bites
1 pint strawberries
1/3 c. white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Wash strawberries and remove stems. Combine berries, sugar, and extract in medium saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook for five minutes, stirring/breaking strawberries up with a wooden spoon constantly. After five minutes, remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. When cool enough, transfer mixture to blender and pulse until desired consistency is reached.

1 c. whipping cream
1/3 c. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Combine whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl. With an electric hand mixer, beat whipping cream until soft peaks form.
