Today we chose to make cheese-filled crepes that fit nicely after a menu like potatoes stew with smoked sausage or pork shoulder stew with mushroom and sour cream.

Let’s See the Ingredients

For this recipe, and generally, for the crepes batter recipe, we use wheat flour, eggs, milk, sugar, and carbonated mineral water or soda.

To have a more delicate taste, I chose to put in the batter a little butter, which I will melt in advance. We can use fresh cow cheese, cottage cheese, or cheese cream for the filling.

How to Make the Cream Cheese Filling Crepes Recipe?

The process is straightforward, and I will first make the crepes batter from which I will then fry the crepes, which will finally fill.

Make the Batter

First, I’ve beaten the eggs well in a bowl with a whisk.

I add melted butter and sugar, and I beat until the sugar dissolves completely.

Continue to add the flour and mix with the whisk until it is well homogenized. In the end, I used to turn the sparkling water and mix it up to get a more fluid batter.

Prepare the Cheese for Filling

I take a smaller bowl, put the cheese in and on top of which, I’ve to grate the zest from one lemon. I also add two tablespoons of sugar and a drop of vanilla extract.

We mixed everything until we got a homogeneous paste. If the cheese is too dry, you can also put a spoonful of sour cream.

Frying the Crepes

I heat a non-stick pan, greasing with a bit of sunflower oil, and I used a pastry brush for it.

When the pan is hot, I pour one layer of batter into the pan with a ladle. I’ve stretched the composition to be a thin layer over the entire surface of the pan.

Fry for 1-2 minutes, and when you see that the edges of the crepe begin to catch the colour, turn the crepe to the other side.

I left it to fry for another minute, then flipped it over a plate.

Filling the Crepes

After we have finished frying all the crepes, we can go over to fill them. Put a tablespoon of cheese on the pancake, and spread it halfway.

Hello there, thanks of sharing such wonderful post. I never knew it wouldn't take so much time to arrive at this. I read about the cheese crepe in a book but didn't really understand its process because there were so many errors compared to what I heard about it and making my personal research, I arrived at this post. The recipes are really easy to get and not much which super nice and the process of making it from your description is just really easy. I'll get on to making it later in the day. Thank you

Timea, I love your recipes! I have been looking over a few of them, the Romaine Lettuce Soup, the Cottage Cheese Donuts, and traditional Hungarian Beef Stew. Wow, I can not wait to make them all.

 I have a question regarding the crepe recipe. I see that you use mineral water. Do you add it after mixing the original batter with the milk? Is the mineral water only used if the mixture gets too thick?

 I am eager to try out your recipes and will be bookmarking your page.

Yes, Colleen, mineral water or carbonated water is added at the end to control the density of the mixture, which will be fluffier.

Currently I'm working on a no diet system, I just eat anything and everything and I think i can make use of this really nice cheese. So many times i am on a hurry to meet up with time at work and i forget to eat sometimes and other times i just take tea and thats it, till late before any good food. I'll love to try preparing this before going to work, the process is really easy and shouldn't take more than 15-20minutes. Thanks for sharing this wonderful post idea.

Yum! This looks delicious!! My only question is in the actual pan frying of the crepes. About how much of the batter should be spooned into the pan? I know crepes are much thinner than pancakes, so I wouldn't want to ruin them.

I am definitely bookmarking this page. I can't wait for more, thank you!!

Hi Bonnie, you can melt a little butter (about 50 g), and with a kitchen brush just grease the pan.
