To Try This Weekend: French Crêpes

Nutella Crepe

If there’s one thing we know how to do in France, it’s gotta be Crêpes. It’s one of my favorite things to eat and it’s so quick and easy to do I could make them every weekend (but I’d rather not, obviously). I like them a bit thick, to really get the taste of the crêpe, but it’s up to you to add more or less milk to get the thickness you like. I filmed the whole process but I’m not really proud of how it turned out (quite difficult without an assistant), tell me if you’d still like to watch that. Adding videos to my recipes is something I’d like to do for 2015 but I still need to practice.

I haven’t counted how many crêpes you can make with this recipe, but I’d say about ten/twelve.

you'll need

  • 300g flour
  • 3 glasses of milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 50g butter
  • 1 packet of vanilla sugar
  • 3 tbsp rum
  • a pinch of salt

directions

  • In a large mixing bowl, add the flour and make a well in the center. Break the eggs into the well and add the vanilla sugar and the salt.
  • Pour your 3 glasses of milk and stir everything with an electric mixer until there are no more lumps left (from the flour).
  • In your microwave, melt the butter for 1 minute.
  • Add it to the mixture and combine.
  • Add the rum and incorporate it (I like to add 3 tbsp for more flavor but it’s up to you).
  • Put in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  • Now’s the time to cook them! In a hot frying pan (I use something like that), add a tiny amount of butter to grease the whole surface.
  • With a ladle, pour some of the mixture on the pan and cook for about 2 minutes (but I don’t really set a timer here, I just know when it’s not runny anymore) and turn the crepe over with a spatula. Turn over once again and then it’s ready to serve!
  • Fill with any flavor you like: sugar, Nutella, jam, lemon curd, coconut powder. Be creative!
