TASTY TUESDAY

Bon Jour! CREPES
Country of Origin: France

My sisters and I have a sweet spot for France. Our grandmother, Me' Me' as we call her, is 100% beautifully French. My mom is half and we are 1/4. Growing up Me'Me' would often make us "flat pancakes" as she called them. I remember thinking they were so weird because they were not pancakes to us! Pretty sure she only said that so we would eat them. With maturity and age I have come to LOVE crepes so much. Only problem is, I must eat them with chocolate and sugar :)

Chase and I made these as a delicious breakfast on a nice Saturday morning. This is seriously the best crepes recipe I have used. You may want to double it if you want more. It made us about 6. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

2 large eggs
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1 cup flour
3 tablespoons melted butter
Butter, for coating the pan


Directions:
  • In a blender, combine all of the ingredients and pulse for 10 seconds.
  • Place the crepe batter in the refrigerator for 1 hour. This allows the bubbles to subside so the crepes will be less likely to tear during cooking. The batter will keep for up to 48 hours.
  • Heat a small non-stick pan. Add butter to coat.
  •  Pour 1 ounce (or 1/3 cup) of batter into the center of the pan and swirl to spread evenly.
  • Cook for 30 seconds and flip. Cook for another 10 seconds and remove to the cutting board or plate.
  • Lay them out flat so they can cool.
  • Continue until all batter is gone.
  • After they have cooled you can stack them and store in sealable plastic bags in the refrigerator for several days or in the freezer for up to two months

    1. i would place them in the fridge after you remove them from the freezer for at least one hour. then move them to the counter to room temperature and let them finish off!

  3. Oooh my gosh. I am totally craving crepes now. The best way to eat them: put vanilla ice cream in the middle, then mixed berries, roll it up, top it with whipped cream, and then drizzle either nutella or syrup on it! SO YUM!

  4. Looks delicious!! That's cool that you and your sisters are 1/4 French! My sisters and I are 1/4 Filipino if you can believe that! That's right, we have a short, teeny tiny little Filipino grandma. She's the best :)
