I was first introduced to crepes when I was on a month long tour of Europe. There was a vendor on the side of the street selling these amazing smelling things that I had never seen before. They looked like huge, thin pancakes. I ordered one and the gentleman filled it with warm Nutella….. oh my goodness. If you have never had a Nutella crepe or jelly filled crepe you are missing out on a yummy goodness!
A couple of years after returning from Europe I met and married my hubby, and his family introduced me to a long loved crepes recipe passed down from his Ranny. We use this very recipe almost every Family Friday, when we have all morning home to enjoy a big yummy breakfast together. So I have decided to pass this easy recipe on to you, and hopefully it will bring a lot of yummy memories for your family as well.
1 1/2 cups of Flour
1 tablespoon of Sugar
2 cups of Milk
1/2 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
2 tablespoons Melted Margarine (I melt the butter on the pan I’m going to use and then add it to the batter. This melts the butter and butters the pan.)
Whisk all ingredients together. Scoop out a small amount from bowl and pour into pan. Pan should be on Medium heat. Move pan around in a circular motion until all the batter is spread out into a thin circle. Put on heat and leave till batter has cooked, about a minute or so, then flip and cook an additional 30-45 seconds. Make sure batter is fully cooked, if not then flip again. The first crepe is usually a throw out because it soaks up the extra butter on the pan, but the ones after are good and so yummy to eat. One batch will make around 8 crepes or so. We fill our crepes with jelly and then roll them up. You can put whatever you like in your crepes. Be creative. And if you happen to have some Nutella, then heat a little up and pour that on the inside of your cooked crepe. Yummo!!!!!
Well this post was short and sweet but promises a great breakfast treat this weekend!
Hope you all have a great rest of the week.
Coming Up on Friday: Date Night
