Tasty Baked Blueberry Crepes

These Baked Blueberry Crepes are really tasty and very easy to make. Preparing the batter is a breeze if you have a stand mixer, such as the Hamilton Beach Stand Mixer 63220. As the baking do take a little time these crepes are more suitable for a leisurely weekend breakfast than for a weekday morning when you are rushed.
