Fall Into Breakfast-Pumpkin Crepes

20130922-144915.jpg

It’s the first day of autumn. My favorite season of all in California. This morning as I was walking my dog in the crisp cool air, barefoot in my pajamas, I was thinking what better breakfast than something with pumpkin. I already had some in the fridge from the kids’ Pumpkin Protein Pancakes and it just sounded so satisfying. Well Sunday mornings are usually crepe day, and nothing sounded better than a bit of fall with spice added in.

And there became Pumpkin Crepes with Pumpkin Whipped Cream.

First off, I invite you to check out my Original Crepes. You’ll be glad you did.

For these flavorful delights I added 2/3 cup pumpkin puree, 2 additional tablespoons of sugar and some spices.

And I cooked the crepes as usual, saying, “circle, circle, circle” along with my 2 year old.

When those were done I made a quick Pumpkin Whipped Cream using a packet of whipped cream mix, a bit of pumpkin purée and sugar and spices.

Which whipped up very nicely.

And my boys gave their seal of approval with plenty

of bowl licking.

    Hi Sandy!

    I see the servings yield is 10 for this recipie; how many crepes of approx what diameter does one serving size include? Also, does the calorie count listed include the topping? If so do we know what one serving of the crepes alone would be? Excited to try something new!

      Yes, Renee, the calorie count includes the toppings. Feel free to check out my Original Crepes recipe mentioned above for the full details on crepe making. The diameter is about 8″ and 1 ladle, or 1/4 cup per serving. Makes about 20 crepes. Hope you like them!
