Cinnamon Apple Crêpes

Leave a comment

This delicious recipe is the perfect marriage between a classic American apple pie and a well-loved European crêpe. To make the dish even better, we added cinnamon essential oil to the crêpe batter, the apple filling, and the whipped cream for the top. It’s sweet enough for dessert, yet healthy enough for breakfast!

Crêpe Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (120 g) flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) milk
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) water
  • 1 drop cinnamon essential oil
  • 1/2 tsp. (2.5 ml) vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp. (1.5 g) salt
  • 2 Tbsp. (30 ml) melted butter

Apple Filling Ingredients:

  • 4–5 apples, sliced and diced
  • 1 toothpick cinnamon essential oil
  • 1/4 tsp. (.5 g) nutmeg powder
  • 2 Tbsp. (30 ml) maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp. (14 g) butter

Cinnamon Whipped Cream Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (240 ml) heavy cream
  • 2 Tbsp. (16 g) powdered sugar
  • 1–4 toothpicks cinnamon essential oil (Add a toothpick at a time until you like the taste.)
  • 1/2 tsp. (2.5 ml) vanilla extract


  1. In a medium bowl (or blender), mix the flour and eggs together. Slowly add milk and water while whisking. Add cinnamon essential oil, vanilla extract, salt, and melted butter, and whisk until well combined.
  2. Heat a lightly oiled frying pan over medium-high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the pan, using about 1/4 cup of batter for each crêpe. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so the batter coats the surface evenly.
  3. Cook the crêpe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a spatula, flip, and cook the other side.
  4. While continuing to cook the crêpes, combine all apple filling ingredients in a saucepan, and cook over medium heat until the apples are soft.
  5. For the cinnamon whipped cream, whisk the heavy cream until it starts to form stiff peaks. Add the powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and cinnamon essential oil, and whisk for a few seconds to incorporate into the cream. Taste, and stir in more cinnamon essential oil as needed.
  6. Serve crêpes warm, filled with apple filling and topped with cinnamon whipped cream.
