Easy and Delicious Crepes

Last night, I decided to hit Pinterest to find a recipe for crepes. Pinterest is my go-to place to find anything! I was hoping to make something special to have for a snack on our family night.  Since I had purchased strawberries earlier in the day, crepes were a perfect idea!  This was the first time I made them and OH MY…they were AWESOME!  And super easy.  Here is what you will need:

crepe ingredient listThe recipe that I adapted this from is from Persephone Magazine.  The original recipe calls for rum as they claim it helps with the flavor and crispiness, but I skipped that ingredient.  You can click on the above link and check it out if you wish.

Mix up the flour, milk and vanilla.  Then slowly add the milk a little at a time.  You will just need to add milk until the consistency of the mixture is thin like heavy whipping  creme or a light cheese sauce. It is ready to go!

Put the pan on your burner on medium heat and throw a dallop of butter into the pan.  Let it melt.  Pick up the pan and swoosh it around it there to be sure it is totally coated.  This recipe calls for a lot of swooshing.

Now take a ladle of batter and put it into the pan.  Swoosh it around. Now let it cook several minutes…I could tell mine was ready to be flipped when it got brown and crispy around the edges and bubbled in the center.  Flip when ready.  I like mine a little browned personally.

The first crepe will likely not be a keeper.  This turned out pretty yucky.  I just gave that one to the dog.  The next ones will turn out great. Consider the first one a tester.  My dog loved it so test passed!

Don’t go crazy with the batter – you want them light and thin.  A little will go a long way – just be sure the pan is fully covered with the batter.

I think it made about 6 crepes for me…if I had done them a little thinner, perhaps I could have squeezed out more.

I filled mine with chocolate chip ice cream, rolled it up,  and then topped it will a dusting of powdered sugar, a bunch of strawberries and of course, whipped cream!

It was heavenly!

The beauty of this treat is that you can fill it with whatever you wish and can have it at any meal…can you imagine it filled with Nutella?  I want to try this next!

Enjoy!  
We sure did!

  1. I had crepes yesterday, albeit from IHop. They have some wonderful spinach, chicken and cheese crepes. I’ve never made them myself, I’m saving your recipe to try very soon. Thanks so much for sharing.

  2. Hello are using WordPress for your site platform?
    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create
    my own. Do you require any coding knowledge to make your own blog?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  3. Check its consistency by doing it from different corners
    of your respective house. The features it’s got and
    benefits it offer for the user, has made it the middle of
    attraction in high-tech gadget market. Milwaukee cordless drills The tool box sized vacuum is 17 by 9 inches and 12 inches tall with easily half the complete vacuum being the debris tank so you’ve got plenty of space to carry dirt.

    Another trick employed by some hackers is to make
    use of a video camera to record your hands at the keyboard.
    I love being able to get light inside the room without
    actually having our shades available, and also getting the
    darkness when it’s needed.
