Cheeky Kitchen, one of my all-time favorite food blogs. These crepe-like blintzes are filled with a pillowy layer of whipped cream (hello richness), greek yogurt (for a slight tang), honey (cue the sweetness), and lemon zest (brings it alive). Topped with a strawberry-lemon-maple syrup.
Yep, we had a good morning. Most definitely going to make these when entertaining guests for breakfast or brunch. Or just to make a hubby happy on an ordinary Friday morning.
Strawberry-Lemon Yogurt Blintzes (Brooke McLay of Cheeky Kitchen)
FOR THE BLINTZES:
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup flour
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
FOR THE FILLING:
1 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup plain greek yogurt
1/4 cup honey or pure maple syrup
zest of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon powdered sugar (my addition)
FOR THE FRESH STRAWBERRY SYRUP:
1 pint strawberries, sliced
Juice of 1 lemon
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1. FOR THE BLINTZES: Combine all ingredients together in a blender until smooth. Heat a nonstick cooking pan or cast-iron skillet to medium-low heat. Spray with nonstick cooking spray. Pour a 6-inch circle of batter into the hot skillet. Cook as you would a pancake, until golden brown. Flip and cook the opposite side until golden brown. Made about 5-6 blintzes.
2. FOR THE FILLING: In an electric mixer, beat the whipping cream until light and fluffy. Add the remaining ingredients and beat until well mixed. Spoon into the center of the blintzes. Top with Fresh Strawberry Syrup & enjoy!
3. FOR THE FRESH STRAWBERRY SYRUP:
