Bonjour, mes amis!
On my recent trip to Europe, I came back with a serious addiction for the French breakfast favorite, the classic crêpe. I ate it for breakfast almost every single day, unapologetically. So, upon my return back to the United States, I had to recreate it for myself so I can indulge in it whenever I want.
So without further ado, here is the recipe for some yummy crêpes!
(yields 10-12 crêpe)
What you’ll need:
- Two cups of milk
- Four tablespoons of butter
- Five eggs
- Two cups of flour
- 1/3 cup of sugar
- One teaspoon of vanilla
- Melt the butter first in the microwave for about forty seconds, or until the majority is liquid.
- Mix together eggs, flour and sugar beginning with low speed. Gradually make the speed higher until all the ingredients are mixed together thoroughly.
- Little by little, add in the milk to the mixture while mixing on low speed. (In the words of my mom, “slowly, or else you’ll wear it!”)
- Add in the vanilla and butter, then again, mix the ingredients all together. Continue mixing until the batter is not too watery, but not too thick.
- Now, put the pan on the stove on high heat. Make sure the pan is burning hot.
- Use the ladle to pour the batter onto the pan, and quickly move the pan around with the handle to ensure the batter moves all around the pan and becomes a nice, big circle.
- Cook until it is slightly brown on the bottom, then flip. Then, leave it on that side for about thirty seconds.
- Continue until batter is gone.
You can eat it with really anything you want. Some people enjoy a savory crêpe with cheese or bacon, but personally I love a sweet crêpe!
I enjoy my crêpes rolled up with Nutella with powdered sugar sprinkled on top with a nice cappuccino on the side.
Bon appétit et au revoir!
