A whipped lemon mascarpone cream filling is layered with lightly sweetened crepes for a perfect dessert or brunch recipe!! Topped with lemon curd whipped cream and fresh berries!




  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 and 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 6 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • butter for the pan

Lemon Mascarpone Cream Filling

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons white granulated sugar
  • 8 ounces mascarpone
  • 1 cup lemon curd

Lemon Whipped Cream

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons white granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon curd
  • Optional: berries for garnishment



  1. Combine all of the ingredients into a blender and mix until just combined.
  2. Pour the batter into a sealable container and place in the refrigerator for at least an hour to let the bubbles settle. The batter can be in the fridge for up to 2 days.
  3. When you first remove the batter from the fridge gently stir to re-incorporate the batter.
  4. Heat a 10 inch non-stick pan over medium heat. Spread butter on the pan and let melt.
  5. Tilt pan at a 45 degree angle. Pour 1/4 a cup of the batter into the center of the pan and swirl the pan to spread the batter into a thin layer covering the bottom of the pan.
  6. Allow to cook for 30 seconds to 1 min. Gently peel the side of the crepe up and carefully flip it over (can use a spatula for this, just be gentle).
  7. Allow the other side to cook for another 30 seconds.
  8. Remove from the pan and place on a wire rack to cool.
  9. Continue until all the batter is used. Only stack the crepes once they are completely cooled.
  10. Crepes can be stored in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
