This is a new one to me. I've heard of Bavarian cream, but not crepes. Had to dig around to find a decent recipe, see the below -

Start with the Bavarian Cream
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 1-1/4 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon powdered gelatin
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 1-1/4 cups freshly whipped cream

Split the vanilla bean in two and place in a pan with cream. Slowly bring up to a boil. Then remove from the heat and let sit about an hour. Remove the bean and scrape out seeds. Add the seeds back into the cream; discard the pod. Now, sprinkle the gelatin over the milk. Set aside. Whisk sugar and egg yolks together. Warm up the cream mixture. Whisk cream into eggs a little at a time. Now, place the egg-cream mixture over a pan of simmering water. Stir until mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon. Remove from heat and stir in the milk-gelatin mixture. Cool to room temperature. Fold in whipped cream.

Crepe Batter
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 3 eggs
  • salt
  • oil

You beat me to it today anna.when I saw this I really tried to think of where you could get this as I know of No one who makes crepes.they do sound delicious though as most sweet crepes are but the savory ones are also good.
