Crêpetacular Crêpes Cooking Time
: Approx 3 Min per Crêpe. Prep Time
: 5 Min Ingredients
1 Cup Milk
1 Cup Flour
1/3 Cup Oil (You may substitute 1/2 stick melted butter)
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Preparation
Whisk eggs together in small bowl
In a large bowl, beat flour and milk together.
Stir in the beaten eggs, oil and vanilla. Beat until you reach an off white loose consistency. Cooking
Note: You may use a large nonstick skillet, but a flat griddle iron is tradition. Either way produces the same result. I prefer a skillet to manually get the flat, even consistency.
Warm the skillet under high heat.
Note: If you've made pancakes, this should seem very familiar.
If you wish, you may use a non-stick cooking spray or very light coating of butter, but since oil is used, the crêpes shouldn't be sticking.
Using a ladle pour mix over the skillet. [Nothing more than 1/4 cup]
The batter should spread thinly and uniformly over the skillet. If you need to, pick up the handle and rotate until batter spreads uniformly circularly around the pan.
Let batter warm for two-three minutes or until sides begin to curl or crisp.
Using a wide spatula, flip the crêpe and let cook for another minute.
Note: The first crêpe tends to get runny or shriveled if the skillet didn't heat thoroughly. This is fine. The successive crêpes will always be better.
Check to see both sides have turned to a golden color. Don't let the crêpes sit too long, they needn't get crispy.
When cooked, place aside on large plate and repeat for remaining batter. Filling
This is really up to you. Crêpes either come in the sweet or savory variety.
Just line your ingredients down the center of the crêpe and roll it from one side. It's all up to your imagination.
Try different combos!
Try filling with
-Egg, Cheese and Spinach
-Ham and Cheese
-Sausage Link bits and Egg
-Spinach and Feta
-Strawberries and Jam
-Strawberries and Nutella
-Banana and Nutella
-Icecream and Bananas
-Whipped Cream and any fruit
Or as I showcased in the image above:
Strawberries, Bananas, Nutella and Honey
You can even use syrup
Seriously, go nuts, or use nuts. It's that versatile!
Sometimes I just eat them plain D:
