  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 and 1/3 cup semi-skimmed milk
  • Olive oil for frying
  • 400 g frozen or fresh strawberries
  • 250 g ricotta
  • 1.5 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste/extract
  • Fresh strawberries and icing sugar for garnish, optional


  • To make the pancakes pour the flour into a large bowl and add the egg. Then gradually add the milk whisking all the time until the batter is smooth. If there are any lumps left use a stick blender to make the mixture as smooth as possible. 
  • Lightly grease (1/2 tsp oil per pancake) and heat up a pancake pan and ladle the batter onto it (tip the pan in a circular motion so the batter spreads evenly covering the entire surface of the pan and producing a thin pancake). Fry over a medium heat for 1-2 minutes on each side until the pancake is lightly browned. Stack the pancakes up on a large plate.
  • To make the filling combine the strawberries with the sugar and cook over a medium heat until the strawberries have thawed and a syrup has formed (about 5 minutes). Remove from the heat, add the ricotta and vanilla extract and puree. Serve warm or chilled.  Add fresh strawberry pieces (optional) and serve.


If you are a beginner at making crepes I recommend using a small pan to start with as it's easier to spread the batter evenly over a smaller surface.
