Lately I've been fascinated by crepes. They seem to be everywhere (in reality, I just know of one family who has opened a creperie.) Either way, I decided to make my own crepes.
I found a pretty easy recipe online. I thought crepe-making was going to be really difficult, but if you aren't set on perfection or high-quality crepes, it really isn't too hard.
So here's what you need:
1 1/3 cups of milk
1/2 teaspoon of salt
2 tablespoons of butter (melted)
1 cup flour
2 tablespoons white sugar
First you'll want to whisk all of that in a largeish bowl until it's not very lumpy.
Then heat up a medium/large skillet on medium heat and grease it with some butter. Not too much like this, though:
Because then your crepe won't even touch the bottom because all that butter is going to melt right to the bottom. The after-math of that:
|Thank you, Caleb, for drowning that skillet.|
Cook the crepes over medium heat for about 1 minute on each side or until light brown, then flip. Treat them like pancakes, especially since this recipe makes them pancake consistency.
Most likely you'll want to add something else to make the crepes taste better. My choice was strawberries and bananas!
|Fill them with what you want!|
|Add powdered sugar, of course.|
And there you have it. Pretty tasty!
