Good Eats – Two ways Crêpe

Let’s talk about crêpes today. What about them? Who doesn’t like a little French pastry for breakfast? I still remember a bunch of friends and I used to head to the mall that was right behind our college to grab these delicious suckers. I don’t know why are they so addictive, or rather how. One thing I do know is, they are super easy to make. Just a couple ingredients and a blender, then we are all set to make breakfast.

Here I have a recipe that is really quick and easy. I like to prepare the batter the night before as you know I am the kind of person that gets really hungry after a good nights sleep. Breakfast is not something that I would skip, it doesn’t matter if I only have 5 minutes, I will still have a slice of toast and my cup of coffee.

In one of the conversation I had with my sister recently she mentioned that she was trying to make a crêpe cake. So this two ways crêpe came across my mind, and I thought, wouldn’t it be great if I can make these for breakfast and they only take a couple minutes? You could also make these crêpe with a savory twist if you would like. I personally prefer them with jams, nutella or cream cheese.

With this crepe I added cream cheese and banana. You are welcome to add some fresh berries.

Ingredients:

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cup of milk
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 2 1/2 tbsp of sugar in the raw
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract (you could also substitute with vanilla beans)
  • 3 tablespoon of melted butter
  • Butter, for coating the pan

Instructions:

  1. Combined all the ingredients in a blender, blend for 20 seconds.
  2. Store the crêpe batter in the refrigerator for an hour or overnight (of course I preferred overnight).
  3. Heat up a small non-stick pan, with some butter, just enough to coat the pan.
  4. Pour a ladder full of batter into the center of the pan, and swirl quickly to make sure the batter spread as evenly as possible to cover the pan.
  5. Cook the crêpe for about 30 seconds before flipping it.
  6. Cook the other side for about 20 seconds and lay it flat on a dish to let it cool before spreading the jam/ cream cheese.

I hope you guys enjoy the crêpe recipe as much as I do. Let me know if you guys have something in mind that you would me to make. I am always open to suggestions.
