Crepes

Crepes are a delicious French thin pancake which are very versatile.  They can be filled with virtually anything from sweet to savory.  It is a super easy pancake to make, which will impress your guests.  I love to fill them with fresh fruit and ice cream, but go ahead and get wild with ideas for fillings.  This is of course anther favorite for my kids too.  If you are having a party and want to have a dessert bar I would recommend having crepes. I hope you enjoy.

Crepe Ingredients: 

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup milk

pinch salt

2/3 cups all purpose flour

1/4 cup vegetable oil

Preparation:

In a stand up mixer or blender add eggs, flour, vanilla, milk and salt. Blend until smooth and well incorporated.

Heat a skillet on medium to high heat. Take a brush and brush on some oil to the skillet. Pour about a 1/4 cup of crepe batter into the skillet, titling to completely coat the bottom of the pan. Cook for about 2 to 3 minutes turning only once, until golden. Set a side

Tip: You don’t need to brush on extra oil unless the pan begins to stick.

Filling Ingredients:

Dozen Strawberries

1/2 teaspoon lemon zest

1/2 teaspoon powdered sugar, to taste

Preparation:

In a blender add 6 strawberries, zest, powdered sugar and blend for about 2 minutes until smooth.  If you don’t want any of the strawberry seeds pass puree through a sieve.

Take crepe, fill it with vanilla ice cream and strawberry puree, & roll it up. Top with extra strawberries, almonds, drizzle some warm caramel on crepe and sprinkle some powdered sugar.

  1. Crepes! One of my dearest memories is sitting in a small creperie along the Seine, the wind and sleet blowing outside, eating a savory crepe with a cup of hard apple cider with my darling wife. Thank you for the recipe!

  2. Ok so I tried making crepes a few years back and tore most of them. Not sure if that was me not pouring enough or the pan not being greased well. Thoughts?

      1. hmm then maybe I wasn’t greasing it well enough. I have pans in all sizes, apparently I am wired to believe 3-4 frying pans are a minimum. Will give these a shot and let you know, thanks 🙂
