Super Simple Crepes

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 + 1/3-1/2 of milk
  • 1 egg
Blend egg, add milk, slowly mix in flour. The batter should be fairly liquidy, not like pancake batter as these come out much thinner.

To cook:
Crepes cook best in a caste iron pan, as the heat is evenly distributed and holds much better than a non-stick frying pan does, however either will do.
On medium heat, add a dollop of butter, oil or some non-stick cooking spray. Evenly spread substance around pan so entire flat surface has a light coating.
Poor about an eighth of a cup of the batter into the centre of the pan, and turn slowly so the batter spreads and the crepe forms into a large circle.
Cook for about 45 seconds (although this cooking time will vary greatly depending upon the heat of the frying pan, and the density of the batter) and flip. Cook the other side under golden brown and serve hot!
I usually pile them on top of one another on a plate in the oven, so they all stay warm until serving time.

Be creative!! Anything you think would taste good… Yoghurt, fresh sliced fruit, jam, maple syrup, brie cheese and salmon, - I really like a fried egg with some melted cheese on top and asparagus, with lemon juice butter and brown sugar for dessert.. sky’s the limit with these guys! Sweet or savoury they are delicious. Enjoy!
