Sweet Crepes

Friday Feb 12, 2010

Happy Valentine’s Day! This is a great recipe for Valentine’s Breakfast. It is simple to make and very delicious! 

Sweet Crepes:

2 Eggs

2 C Flour

1 C Sugar

Pinch Salt

1 t Vanilla

1/3 C Milk

1/3 C Water

Mix it all together, but add the milk and water slowly.  You can use a blender, but I find that by hand works just as well.  You are looking for a thin, smooth batter.  The reason why you hold on the liquids is so that you can make it to the right consistency. Sometimes it takes both 1/3 cups, sometimes a little more or less.  I usually add in all the milk so it is easier to mix, then I will add the water slowly until it gets to the right consistency.  

Using a frying pan you want to add a little bit of butter, or spray some oil. Just a little. Pour some batter and spread it thin with the back of a spoon.

TIP: The first or second usually don’t work as well. That is ok!  You will get the hang of it. Just don’t give up. 😉  I also found that the oil is only added on the first one. You do not need to keep adding butter or oil to the pan. (it is a lot easier to spread without any oil)

You want to cook it about 20-30 seconds each side.

That is it!!! It is so sweet and delicious . Now just use your creativity for the filling. We like to have raspberries, strawberries, bananas, pineapple, nutella, different jams and whipped cream of course!

It is something that the whole family can enjoy because they can fill with whatever they may like.

TIP: Use it as it comes out of the pan, or keep it warm. They tend to harden a little after cold, making it hard to fold.  Enjoy!
