Manicotti Crepes

Host Zoe Francois holds her manicotti crepes, as seen on Zoe Bakes, season 2.

These are the manicotti crepes I made on the Family Crepes episode of Zoë Bakes on Magnolia Network. In this episode I demonstrate the delicious versatility of crêpes with everything from bananas Foster crepes to these savory manicotti crepes. For more inspiration, I also visit a local pastry chef to see how a crêpe cake is made. You’ll find my basic crepes recipe here.

I made these manicotti crepes for my husband on our very first date and I’m pretty sure this recipe is the reason we’re married! 😉 I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

  1. Hi Zoe
    I just discovered you because I was in hospital! Your recipes and the way you present them are very informative and awesome with loads of things I struggled with being a home cook. Bravo to MN to discover you, or you discovering them. My mother was the best cook and made things out of nothing. I will never make food as delicious as she did as I live in a very different part of the world. Your breads however will help me get there! The information of having bread dough in the fridge has inspired me to get better and get to it. Thank you for making my boring day in bed so much fun. Stay well and keep the shows coming, I have recorded both seasons and will keep the shows forever if I can. You are fantastic! Every recipe will be tried!

    1. Hi Ronnie, thank you so much for the kind note. We are thrilled to hear you’re inspired by Zoë’s show and recipes!
