Crepes

Crepes

This is a recipe I got from a friend way back in 6th grade.  (I won’t say how long that has been). Every time I make these up I can’t help think of my dear friend Merit who introduced me to this yummy breakfast treat.  We would have sleepovers quite frequently at her house and her mom would make these for us.  I’ll bet there were about 10-12 girls that her mother would feed.  She always served them with strawberry jam and whipped cream.  It is more like dessert than breakfast.

We had a bunch of strawberries this weekend so the kids wanted to make crepes.  I figured I might as well take a few photos while I was at it.  After all, I hadn’t added this favorite to my recipe collection yet.

Here are a few tips and tricks.

Crepes butter pan

Add a dab of butter to a crepe pan or a wok works great too. Pick up the pan and swish the butter around to coat the pan.

Crepes COOKING

Swish the butter around and add about 1/2 cup of batter to the pan. Pick up the pan and swirl the batter around the pan to spread it out into an even big circle. Take a large spoon and smooth out the batter to make even edges.

Crepes flip

Allow it to cook until the batter isn’t runny. This only takes a few minutes. Use a metal spatula to gently flip the crepe over.

Crepes serving

Cook for another few minutes. Repeat the process until all the batter has been used.

Crepes toppings

Fill your crepes with berries and cream, Nutella, peanut butter, chicken, cheese, or whatever your heart desires.
