I recently realized I never shared my recipe of crepes. It’s one of those basic recipes I didn’t think I should blog about. But, if I’m not making them for a while, I need to refresh my memory, so I really need them on the blog.
I like crepes a lot, filled with chocolate spread or jam. I like them filled with ice cream and a bit of chocolate sauce drizzled on top. I also love crepes with savoury fillings, like grated cheddar and fried mushrooms. Baked in the oven for 5-10 minutes, just enough for the cheese to melt. They are a delight, if you never tried them, have a go.
Ingredients for 10 big crepes:
– 3 eggs
– 350g plain white flour
– 300ml milk
– 1 tsp sugar
– 1 pinch of salt
– oil for frying
Beat the eggs with the sugar and the salt until they are fluffy. Add 100g flour and the milk, mix with the hand mixer until all the ingredients are incorporated. Add more flour and mix thoroughly so there aren’t any lumps. Leave the mixture until the pan is heated. If you don’t want to fry all the crepes in one go, you can keep the mixture in the fridge for the following day. It’s also a fast way to make a couple of crepes in the morning as a breakfast treat. Just mix it a bit before using it.
Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Add 1/4 tsp of oil or use an oil spray to coat the pan. Pour a ladle of batter in the pan and spread it evenly by swirling the pan to form a thin crepe. Leave it to cook for a minute or two. Flip them on the other side and cook them for another minute. It will take less to cook on the other side.
They are ready now to be filled and enjoyed. Do you like crepes? What is your favourite filling for them?
