Servings: 6 crêpes

Active time: 26 minutes

Total time:



  • 3 Tbsp butter, divided
  • 4 Davidson's Safest Choice® pasteurized egg(s)
  • 1 1/3 c whole milk
  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 c all-purpose flour


  1. Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter.
  2. Lightly beat eggs in a large mixing bowl. Use a whisk to mix in milk and melted butter. Add sugar, salt, and flour, and whisk until smooth. 
  3. Place 10-inch skillet over medium heat and add a sliver of butter. When butter is hot, pour in batter. Cook approximately 2 minutes on one side, flip, and cook about another minute, until brown spots appear. Stack crêpes on a plate.

Custard Sauce

  • 2/3 c granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 6 Davidson's Safest Choice® pasteurized egg yolk(s)

  1. Heat milk in a saucepan just until steam is released when stirred. 
  2. Place sugar and egg yolks in a mixing bowl and whisk until creamy and pale yellow. Add vanilla and mix well.
  3. When milk is hot, pour it slowly into the mixing bowl while whisking on low speed. Once all the milk has been added, pour the mixture back into the saucepan, and place over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring constantly with a whisk, until custard begins to thicken. Remove from heat and add the butter, then vanilla. Pour through a strainer and chill in the refrigerator. 


  • 1 1/2 c blueberries, strawberries, or other berries
  1. Fold prepared crêpes in half, and then fold over again to form an irregular triangle. 
  2. Arrange various types of berries over the top, and drizzle desired amount of custard sauce over the top of the crêpes.

Pasteurized equals peace of mind

Davidson's Safest Choice® pasteurized eggs taste great and are safe for all your favorite egg dishes! Davidson's gentle water bath pasteurization reduces the risk of Salmonella in eggs without changing the nutrition or flavor. In fact, Davidson's pasteurized eggs have earned the Seal of Approval for exceptional flavor and culinary performance from the American Culinary Federation (ACF).

The Raw Egg Risk

Davidson's eggs aren't just good for sunny-side up or poached eggs. Consider all the recipes that feature raw eggs, like eggnog, Caesar salad dressing, raw cookie dough, custard and more. Take homemade ice cream, for example. Over a four-year period, more than 500 illnesses in the US were traced to Salmonella bacteria in homemade ice cream, according to the CDC. The ingredient at fault? Raw or undercooked eggs.
