I like to make my crepes with simple ingredients. The fun part comes from various toppings and fillings that are served with them. And there are so many choices. But first the basics ...
- 1 Cup of flour
- 1 Cup of milk
- 1 egg
- pinch of salt
Needless to say that making crepes is not like making pancakes though they can be eaten for breakfast. Just like pancakes! But that's a subject for another post. These are dessert crepes. Watch this video if you haven't cooked crepes before:
My recipe is slightly different from the video, but the general method is noteworthy. Also, I layout the batter so thin that I don't usually flip the crepe.
As for the filling, almost any chopped fruits and nuts will work complemented with nutella, cream cheese, peanut butter, blueberry jam, strawberry jam, any jam, and/or whip cream. Toppings are usually chopped fruits, nuts, powdered sugar, a scoop of whip cream, a drizzle of nuttela, chocolate syrup, and ice cream. Really basic stuff for making desserts like crepes.
