Crepes


I am not a breakfast person, so its usually bread and different spreads for breakfast in my house.  Except on weekends ,if I am on the mood to cook,  I make eggs or pancakes.
My eldest son ( little guy) loves pancakes. I usually make him pancakes using the Betty Crocker  pancake mix but when I saw the crepe recipe by Jacques Pepin that I decided to give it a try as the recipe was  quite straightforward and easy.


The boys enjoyed them spread with Raspberry preserve or  Nutella.

Recipe : Crepes recipe from Jacques Pepin's Crepes with Jam recipe found in Delish

For  8 Crepes

2/3 cups plain flour ,sifted
2 eggs, beaten lightly
1-2 tsp sugar
3/4  cups milk
1 tbsp oil - to grease the pan

In a large bowl mix flour and sugar.

Make a well in the centre and add the eggs and 1/4 cup of milk. Whisk well and once its completely lump free add the rest of the milk  and mix.

Heat a non- stick frying pan, just a small one ( not those teeny tiny ones, just a regular one you use for making eggs) , Brush with a little oil and  add a ladle of crepes mixture and swirl the pan around so the batter covers a thin layer at the bottom of the pan.  Cook for a few seconds , flip to the other side and cook another second and remove to a plate.

Serve warm spread with Jam or Preserves or Nutella.
