French Pancakes (Crepes)
Many years ago while I was in high school, we hosted a french exchange student. She made us this delicious breakfast that could moonlight as a dessert. It was Crepes! These very thin “pancakes” are surprisingly easy to make. Filled with fresh fruits, you can’t go wrong! Cook up a batch for breakfast and let me know how you like them!
1 1/2 c Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
2 tsp Baking Powder
2 Tbs Demerara Sugar
1 1/3 c Milk
2/3 c Water
1 tsp Vanilla
Fruit (sliced banana, diced apple, blackberries, jam…)
Mix all your dry ingredients in a large bowl (flour, salt, baking powder, sugar). Mix all your wet ingredients in a medium bowl (eggs, milk, water, vanilla). Pour your wet ingredients into your dry ingredients and lightly mix. It’s ok if there are lumps. Ladle crepe mix onto a hot griddle making a large, thin pancake circle. When the edges look like they are completely set and starting to dry, flip them gently with a large spatula. You want a nice light golden brown color on the crepes. Cooking time will very, but for my griddle, it’s around 3 minutes per side. Fill the crepes with your desired fillings and gently roll up. Sprinkle a little sugar on top of the crepe and you’re done!
