Yield: serves 6-8

Ingredients

  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 2 cups strawberries
  • 13 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 12 tsp. kosher salt
  • 5 peaches, peeled, pitted, and cut into 1" wedges
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tbsp. confectioners' sugar
  • 12 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 cups fromage blanc
  • 12 cup sour cream
  • 13 cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup heavy cream, whipped into stiff peaks

Instructions

  1. Simmer blueberries, strawberries, sugar, 14 tsp. salt, and peaches in a 4-qt. saucepan until blueberries begin to burst, about 15 minutes; let cool.
  2. Whisk flour, confectioners' sugar, and baking powder in a bowl. Whisk 1 tsp. salt, milk, yogurt, melted butter, vanilla, and eggs in another bowl. Whisk dry ingredients into wet to make a smooth batter. Heat a 12" nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, pour about 13 cup batter into skillet, tilting skillet to let batter cover bottom completely. Cook until crêpe is lightly browned on the bottom, 1–2 minutes. Flip and cook 1 minute more; transfer to a plate.
  3. Whisk remaining salt, the fromage blanc, sour cream, and maple syrup in a bowl. Spread crêpes with about 3 tbsp. each the fromage blanc and berry mixtures; roll. Garnish with whipped cream and remaining fruit.
