Let Them Eat Crêpes!

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

4 eggs

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!
