Crepes on a Sunday
The French people have some of the most magnificent food in the world and one of their most popular dishes are crepes. Crepes are enjoyed throughout French and practically every city and village has a crepe stand or a restaurant serving crepes.
When you wake up in the morning on a Sunday what better way to start the day then with some delicious homemade crepes. Yesterday I was craving crepes and made my own batter from scratch.
If you find yourself in a mood for crepes on a Sunday or anyway of the week for that matter here's a recipe for CREPES that you'll truly enjoy.
It's the moments of making a tasty dish from scratch and sitting down to enjoy it that's extra nice. So enjoy your moments making and eating French Crepes.
1 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons of authentic french butter, melted
1/2 cup - 1 cup of flour
Put the milk, egg, and melted butter in a mixing bowl…than gradually add the flour until it makes a batter. Place a tablespoon of French butter in a crepe style pan and and allow it to melt over a medium flame. Once the pan is hot enough you can pour the batter into the pan. It usually takes about a minute or two for the crepe to cook. Be certain to add a tablespoon of the French butter into the crepe pan every time you make a new crepe.
Afterwards you can put some of your favorite fruit preserves on top of the crepe and roll it up. Other filling options is to squeeze some fresh lemon onto the crepe and sprinkle it with cinnamon and powdered sugar. One of the most popular fillings is bananas with Nutella hazelnut spread.
Enjoy your crepes with a good cup of coffee.
Wishing you moments of happy eating!
