  • Combine ingredients for crepe batter in blender, mixing for one minute until mixture is smooth and slightly frothy.
  • Add red food colouring until you reach your desired colour of red.
  • Allow crepe batter to rest in fridge for at least 1 hour, or overnight.
  • In a pan on medium heat, add butter, pouring about 1/4 cup of crepe batter into pan, frying until it begins to brown on the bottom (about 1-2 minutes).
  • Flip and cook crepe for about another minute.
  • Add filling just off the center of the crepe, rolling up the crepe around it.

  • In a pan on medium heat, add strawberries and water.
  • Cook for about 10-15 minutes before adding sugar. It will begin to reduce in this time, then add sugar to taste, allowing to continue cooking until syrup reaches desired thickness (thick enough to coat a spoon). Keep in mind it will get a little bit thicker as it cools down.
  • In a bowl, combine heavy cream with sugar and vanilla to taste.
  • Beat cream until you reach desired thickness.
