Cooking Sessions: Bon Appétit!

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!

Crêpes

(yields 10-12 crêpe)

What you’ll need:IMG_0668.JPG

  • Two cups of milk
  • Four tablespoons of butter
  • Five eggs
  • Two cups of flour
  • 1/3 cup of sugar
  • One teaspoon of vanilla

Instructions:

  1. Melt the butter first in the microwave for about forty seconds, or until the majority is liquid.                                                                                       img_0671
  2. Mix together eggs, flour and sugar beginning with low speed. Gradually make the speed higher until all the ingredients are mixed together thoroughly. img_0669
  3. 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!”)             img_0670
  4. 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.
  5. Now, put the pan on the stove on high heat. Make sure the pan is burning hot.
  6. 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.img_0672img_0673
  7.  Cook until it is slightly brown on the bottom, then flip. Then, leave it on that side for about thirty seconds.
  8. Continue until batter is gone.
  9. Enjoy!

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!

Bon appétit et au revoir!
