You can't go wrong by mixing finely chopped apples with brown sugar and cinnamon and then stuffing that into a crepe. These Apple Cinnamon Crepes are like an apple pie - in a crepe! Delicious crepe filling recipe for homemade regular crepes or homemade gluten free crepes.
Apple pie has always been one of my most favorite desserts, and I am also addicted to crepes with ricotta cheese filling and honey-roasted pears and to stuffed crepes with blueberries and ricotta cheese . As I was brainstorming the other day about what kind of new filling I should try for the stack of crepes I always seem to have somewhere nearby (perhaps, because I love making them from scratch), I figured I just couldn't go wrong by mixing finely chopped apples with brown sugar and cinnamon and then stuffing that into a crepe. Oh boy! These apple cinnamon crepes turned out so good! Just take a look at this photo:
These stuffed apple cinnamon crepes are really like an apple pie at its finest: French dessert and traditional American dessert combined in one. They did not last long in my house: in fact, my husband never got a chance to eat a single crepe. He never knew I made them. I've eaten them for breakfast, afternoon snack and after dinner dessert. I've suffered withdrawal after the crepes were all gone, and had to make some more, dusting them with loads of powdered sugar:
While I used only brown sugar and cinnamon for the apple crepe filling, you could also try adding a bit of lemon juice or vanilla extract (or both) to the bowl with chopped apples for juices to do their work. And, lightly dusting these apple cinnamon crepes with powdered sugar right before serving makes them so pretty!
If you love crepes, I so recommend stuffing them with this apple cinnamon filling and trying this simple recipe!
Apple Cinnamon Crepes
- 3 apples , cored and peeled
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- homemade crepes
- gluten free crepes
- Chop apples into small cubes, place cubed apple slices in a medium bowl, add brown sugar and cinnamon, and toss everything together to coat chopped apples with brown sugar and cinnamon. Let the juices do their work for about 20 minutes.
- Right before serving, heat chopped apples on medium heat in a skillet, and warm the crepes in a microwave for about 20 seconds.
- To serve, add chopped apples on top of the open crepe, and fold the crepe into the pocket shape. Sprinkle with powdered sugar right before serving, if desired.

I looked all over the page but I'm afraid I couldn't find the information regarding when to add the brandy and how much? I'm sure its just me not seeing straight. : )
Delicious EASY recipe without the fussiness of other recipes with so many ingredients and spices, etc.
Thom, thank you for such a nice comment - glad you find this recipe easy, practical, and, hopefully, delicious! 🙂
Can you use whole wheat pancake batter
Apples too hard to eat easily.
Made them last night. Topped with vanilla ice cream. Loved it!
If I make the crepes ahead of time, do they need to be reheated to serve? And what's the best way to reheat? Thanks!!
The crepes do not need to be reheated. But if you want them warm, I would reheat them in the oven or in the microwave oven.
You can also reheat them individually in a pan. Flipping once so both sides are warm. ☺️
That's a good idea, too! Reheat on low-medium heat. Add a small amount of butter, to avoid the crepes sticking to the pan and to add more flavor.
This looks amazing!! I love crepes, so I'm definitely making this!
I made these with whole wheat flour and they were delish! I would recommend reducing heat to medium for whole wheat 🙂
