17 Dessert Crepe Recipes
While fluffy, buttery pancakes have their place at the breakfast table, there's something so elegant about thin, crisp French crepes. They're completely customizable — choose from your choice of fruit and decadent sauces and fillings such as chocolate or whipped cream. Savory crepes are great too, but be sure to save room for dessert (crepes). For sweet inspiration, check out this collection of our 17 favorite dessert crepe recipes.

Yummy Apple Cinnamon Crepes
Cheesecake Crepe Roll-Ups
This recipe calls for frozen berries, but Allrecipes Allstar Jennifer Baker suggests using fresh when in season: "I used fresh fruit since it's in season and the filled crepes are delicious. I would be very happy if my family made these for me for Mother's Day (hint hint!)."
Chocolate Banana Crepes
Chocoholics have to try these double chocolate crepes: Chocolate crepes (made with the addition of hazelnut liqueur and cocoa) are filled with sliced bananas and drizzled in a homemade chocolate sauce.
Chef John's Strawberry Crepe Cake
"Using this simple 'crepe cake' technique, you can turn any of your favorite cake fillings into visually stunning, multi-layered masterpieces," says Chef John. "By the way, I say this is simple, not fast, as it does take some time to make and stack all those crepes, but once you get rolling, it goes pretty quickly."
State Fair Crepes
This is a crepe take on the classic peanut butter, chocolate, and banana combo. "You find some pretty strange food combinations at state fairs, and this might be one that shows up one day," says recipe creator and Allrecipes Allstar lutzflcat. "These flavors blend harmoniously, and a dollop of whipped cream or scoop of ice cream wouldn't hurt either."
Gluten-Free Butter Crepes with Orange Blossom Honey Butter
"Buttery, gluten-free crepes are served with whipped honey butter. Real butter makes the difference: the crepes are crisp and the topping creamy, all with a hint of orange for an indulgent dessert or brunch," says recipe creator Anonymous.
Blintzes are of Jewish or Russian origin, and are always filled and rolled, unlike a crepe, which may be served filled or unfilled, rolled or folded. Orange juice and zest bring subtle flavor to this classic treat.
Love Letter - Crepes
These appropriately named crepes are the perfect way to say, "I love you." Vanilla crepes are filled with a combination of flaked coconut, white sugar, and cardamom for subtle flavor.
Chocolate Raspberry Blintzes
Chocolate and raspberry were meant to be, just as you are meant to enjoy these decadent blintzes. Each blintz is filled with a chocolate-berry cream cheese mixture and coated in a cinnamon sugar topping.
Nutella, Banana, and Whipped Cream-Filled Crepes
Dessert Crepes with Homemade Chocolate Sauce
A homemade chocolate sauce adds something special to these dessert crepes. "Definitely double the sauce. It only made enough to lightly drizzle over the amount of crepes and this chocoholic needed more than a thin line of this rich nectar," says Allrecipes Allstar Buckwheat Queen.
