Sweet or savory, crêpes are always a favorite treat or quick meal in any French household. There’s nothing easier than making crépes. You will need:
2 cups Flour
pinch of salt
1.4 cup melted butter
2 cups of milk
2 tbs sugar
Making crêpes is all in the wrist or the tour de main. The first part is to make a well in the bowl with the flour combined with salt and slowly add the milk and eggs and melted butter. Your batter must be light and silky and not like a pancake mix. To flavor your batter you can add some vanilla extract, some orange blossom. Let the batter rest a bit.
The second part is in the pan. Make sure it is well heated, hot and well greased with butter or a bit of oil. You can also invest in an electric crêpe machine but you won’t be able to flip your crêpes!
Let each crêpe cook a little minute on each side until the borders are golden and hop, toss and flip your crêpe in the air like a pro!
The best crêpes are homemade, so be creative! make em sweet with sugar, jam, and of course Nutella! or make em savory with ham & cheese, shrimps, mushrooms, chicken, etc… (Check out our Crêpe Recipes)
