Crepes

The easiest breakfast food of all time. We had ours with Lemon curd, ricotta cheese and cinnamon plum jam…. yummmm.

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 T sugar
directions:
  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and the eggs. Gradually add in the milk, water and vanilla stirring to combine. Add the salt, sugar and butter; beat until smooth.
  2. Heat a lightly oiled frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter into the pan, using approximately 1/4 cup for each crepe. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.
  3. Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a spatula, turn and cook the other side. Serve hot.
Good to know:
+Its really easy to make fruit spreads to put on the crepes. Heres a couple ideas:
.Cinnamon plum jam: peel and cut up the fruit, boil it with a bit of water, sugar & cinnamon until it becomes jam-like. You can do this with almost any fruit.
 
.Lemon curd from Trader Joes along with a layer of ricotta
 
.Ricotta, sugar and cinnamon
