Delicious Japanese-Style Crepe Recipes
Here I will introduce you to a variety of crepe recipes. You can enjoy them for your Japanese-theme breakfast. Crepes are, in general, very delicious, and by trying out different kinds of recipes, you will not get bored of them but even love them more!
Let’s start looking at the recipes below!
Pancake mix is always the safer choice since you don’t have to worry about the texture of the crepe going weird, as long as you follow its instructions. This crepe is similar to street crepes, but you don’t have to make the crepe batter from scratch.
Strawberries are always a good combination with crepe, and you can also add kiwis, bananas, blueberries, raspberries to it. The mixture of whipped cream, fruits, and crepe go very well together.
Whatever fruits you choose, make sure that they’re ripe. While there are tricks to speed up the ripening process of kiwis, bananas, and other climacteric fruits, non-climacteric fruits like strawberries or raspberries can only be picked (and bought) when they have properly ripened on the vines.
Street crepes are popular in Japan, especially in Harajuku street of Tokyo. You will see these crepes are made on quality and heavy-duty crepe makers that are mostly electric ones. But feel free to use your pan to make them at home.
You will start by making the crepe batter and heating them into thin crepe layers. Then you can add fillings of your choice of fruits, syrup, and whipped cream to the crepe.
As for fruits, the recommendations are the ones below, but you can also add other fruits if you think would be a good fit for the crepe itself;
For the syrups, these are the popular options, but you can also pick other fillings you like;
- Whipped cream
- Red Bean Paste
- Custard cream
- Ice cream of your choice
- Maple syrup
- Fruit sauce of your choice
- Brownie squares
Street crepes are very versatile, so you can use your creativity and add the fillings you like and enjoy this dessert!
Matcha crepes are also a nice treat while walking on Japanese streets like the previous option. However, matcha powder is added to give them a taste of matcha in the crepes.
As for fillings, there are so many ways to enjoy these crepes. For example, you can top them with syrups like chocolate, Nutella, caramel, or maple syrup. If you like fruits, you can add fruits like strawberries, blueberries, bananas, kiwis, and more fruits with syrup and whipped cream. You can even add a scoop more of ice cream, too.
Since these are versatile crepes, you can add fillings of your choice that you think would make a good combination with each other!
With traditional Japanese green tea crepe layers and azuki red beans mixed with whipped cream and pecans, nothing can go wrong!
If you don’t have pecans at home, you can use other nuts like almonds or walnuts, too. This is a simple yet flavorful crepe recipe in which you can enjoy the blending of Japanese and Western taste.
For street crepes, you can add sliced bananas and caramel syrup, and it’s already amazing. However, if you have time and want to enhance the taste of the banana filling, you can try making these banana caramel crepes.
Crepes are heated into thin layers. Then, you can make the caramel syrup by adding water and sugar, then mix the bananas to it and coated the fruit with caramel. This will enhance the caramel taste with the banana. Besides this banana caramel filling, you can add toppings like whipped cream or ice cream to them, too!
This crepe is unique, as there is a mochi added to the crepe, which gives the crepe a chewy texture.
This is a true fusion crepe, as you can taste the milky taste of crepe with Japanese mochi, matcha, and azuki red bean paste. Since azuki red bean paste is already sweet, adding sour fruits like strawberries also enhances the taste of the crepe too!
