Do you like Crepes ??

OK .. it has been way too long since I've last made a post. SO, we've enjoyed the past couple of days homemade crepes. They are easy and wonderfully delicious. Better yet, they're cheap and a little goes a long ways !!

Here's the recipe for basic crepes:

In a blender or food processor, put the following:

2 cups All Purpose Flour
1/4 cup Sugar
2 cups Milk
4 Eggs
1/8 tsp (Pinch) Salt

Blend until all ingredients are incorporated

Add 1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) melted butter

Blend until the batter is smooth.

Put the batter in the refrigerator and let it rest approximately 20 minutes.

Heat an 8" shallow flat pan on medium heat. Spray with non-stick cooking spray between each crepe. Pour the batter in the middle (approximately 1/4 cup) and swirl until the batter just coats the entire bottom surface of the pan. Let it cook approximately 1 minute. Use a spatula to flip the crepe to the other side and cook for another 30 seconds. Each side should be lightly brown. Put on a plate.


Put a stripe of Whipping Cream down the middle of the crepe. Put on top of the whip cream stripe some strawberries. You can get frozen strawberries sliced and in sweet syrup or you can cut up some fresh ones and add sugar. Roll the crepe. Top with powdered sugar, more whip cream or drizzled chocolate sauce. Enjoy !!
