I can finally make (semi-decent) crepes! I love crepes, but it just seems wrong to pay for them unless their stuffed with homemade whipped cream, chocolate sauce, fresh strawberries, and brownies like the one I had in Holland. It was also the size of a large pizza. That is a crepe that you pay money for.
However, most of the time I just want a simple crepe with lemon and sugar or nutella and banana so I knew it was time to find a foolproof recipe. After struggling through several recipes in London, I finally found one that was a piece of cake. LOOK AT HOW BEAUTIFUL THEY ARE
When make crepe batter, the recipe always says “whisk until smooth”. DO YOU KNOW HOW LONG THAT TAKES? a while. Life is must better when you just throw that sucker in a blender. Work smart, not hard I always say.
The recipe was as follows:
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/8 teaspoon (pinch) salt
- butter (for cooking)
Throw all those suckers, sans butter, in a blender. Heat a nonstick pan on low-medium heat, coat the pan a little butter (A LITTLE, we don’t want to become one with the blob after eating these), and pour a thin coating of batter into the pan. When the edges start to brown, carefully flip the crepe over and cook on other side.
Stuff with your choice of savory or sugary fillings, then bon appetit!
I personally chose a mix of peanut butter, nutella, and banana. I am also partial to strawberries, fresh whipped cream, clotted cream, lemon, and/or sugar.
If your into the savory, eggs, cheese, veggies, sliced chicken/turkey, and fresh mayo would also be delish.
