Crepes Recipe

I decided to share my crepes recipe today. They are very popular in Europe and are called “pancakes” there. They can be served with savory or sweet filling. There are many different fillings you can make like honey-nut , strawberry, Nutella and banana, fresh berry filling, ham and cheese or spinach and mushroom filling. These are some of the many different ways you can enjoy your crepes. My favorite fillings are Nutella or fresh strawberry filling. Making them is not as hard as it seems.
Here is what you need:

Ingredients:

2 cups flour
1 cup milk
1 cup water
4 eggs
2 tablespoons butter, melted
pinch of salt
additional butter

Directions:

I recommend putting everything in a blender and blending it until well combined. I you prefer not to use a blender, you can beat eggs in a large bowl, adding water, milk, butter and salt. Add flour and keep beating until smooth.
In a nonstick skillet (I am using an 8 inch, 20cm skillet), melt a small piece of butter over medium heat. Pour 3 tablespoons of batter into the center of the skillet. (The amount of batter to make a thin crepe in 8 inch skillet is around 3 tablespoons, just use a small ladle to pour it). Lift and tilt the pan to coat the bottom evenly. When top starts to look dry,  turn crepe using a thin spatula and cook the other side for 20-30 seconds more. Repeat the same process with all the remaining batter. Use some butter to coat the skillet each time. Make sure you don’t stack hot crepes on top of each other.

Now here is how I like to serve them:

  1. Option one- serve them with Nutella, you can add bananas and nuts
  2. Option two-butter the crepe while still warm, add some fresh strawberries and sprinkle with  powder sugar, then fold the crepe and aadd some more powder sugar.
