I've been quite slow in updating my blog recently. I wonder where is my baking and blogging spirit has gone. I wish I got back my passion after the gathering with my buddy but somehow I fine myself still like floating somewhere else. This fruit crepe was made last week and till now I've nothing to post up here. Well, at least I've got few of this pictures taken so to make you remember me :)
I normally have crepes spread with my homemade peanut butter for breakfast rather than serve as dessert. I know it suppose to be dessert not breakfast. So this time, I try to make it as a fruit dessert since I've got some banana and strawberries. I've seen many food bloggers and recipe books showing how to make this crepe rolls till now only I got a little mood to do it. It's not perfectly roll up but I find this crepe recipe I've been using for many years really a good one and simple to make.
Roll in the lemony cream cheese cream with the strawberries and banana is quite a refreshing dessert. I very much like the light texture of cream which contains little cream cheese with little sugar. Melt some dark chocolate that given by my buddy that make extra flavor to it. I think I must not only make this fruit crepes for my breakfast next time. It taste very yummy indeed but just need more practice to roll it up nicer.

For the cream cheese cream 西点学习大百科 -

To make the crepe rolls, place a piece of crepe on a plate. Squeeze some cream cheese cream at the center then place a piece of strawberry or banana on the cream. Squeeze some more cream cheese cream until it cover the fruits. Fold up from the bottom and the side then roll up the entire crepe. Keep in the fridge for 2 hours before serving. I'm not sure this is the best roll up method. Please feel free to give your opinion and ideas. Thanks!
