These Sweet Crepes can easily turn your breakfast to a feast. Are you saying you are not a breakfast person? Believe me you can’t say ‘no’ to breakfast with these festive looking crepes. Even early in the morning!
These breakfast crepes filled with jam can be served either at breakfast or as a dessert in the afternoon. I can hear some of you asking “Why not for dinner?”
If you’re following this blog for some time, you know how much I love to have breakfast. When I say breakfast, it’s absolutely not a bowl of cornflakes or a sandwich. I can’t think of breakfast without a form of eggs; boiled, scrambled, poached. I am on cloud nine if I have a fluffy cheese omelet.
Our typical breakfast has mainly cheeses of various kinds, black and green olives, jams, honey, butter, egg, tomato and cucumber. We generally try to prepare something special when we have enough time to spend time at breakfast table enjoying the food and talking on how we spend the week or planning what to do on that day.
Sweet crepes filled with jam are one of these special foods that we have at big Sunday breakfasts. I mostly wake up early thanks to our 3-year-old precious son and have enough time to prepare an attractive breakfast table. As he loves to eat crepes, it’s like a tradition in our home to have crepes in the morning. He asks for either crepes or pancakes even on the weekdays.
I don’t know why but unlike pancakes, sweet crepes are very common in Turkish cuisine although they are originally from French cuisine. And we love to fill and roll them up. We sometimes make gluten-free crepes with rice flour too.
If you are not an early morning person and don’t want to spend time making crepes in the morning, you can just make them a day before and keep them in the refrigerator till morning.
You can serve crepes as they are and leave the filling to your guests. Or you can make dessert crepes filled with homemade strawberry jam, roll them up and dust a little with powdered sugar right before serving. We use this jam when making breakfast parfait too.

Great idea to have crepes for breakfast! I love a filling breakfast and I love crepes -- it would be just a great weekend brunch dish. I also love that you can have it either sweet or savory and let people choose. 🙂

Aren't crepes amazing! Sweet or savory, they make such an elegant presentation, don't they?

You've got some very practical and yummy looking recipes. I'll have to try some of them soon. Thanks. Cheers, Edith.
I also love proper breakfasts, but unfortunately too often find myself with the aforementioned bowl of cornflakes - but these, wow. It's lunchtime right now and I wouldn't mind having them for my mid-day meal in the slightest! Geez, those look good ...
What a delicious breakfast...great way to begin the day! YUM!!
I adore crepes. It is such a wonderful idea for breakfast. I would love to slather a thick layer of blueberry jam across a few of these for a dessert too!
Those look like good pancakes. Crepes? Rather thick.
