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.
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup milk
2/3 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup vegetable oil
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.
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon powdered sugar, to taste
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.
