Crepes

Let’s talk about how to make crepes! We love these strawberry crepes!  Fill them with Nutella, fresh fruit, or warm fruit compote. They warm up easily for breakfasts thru out the week! Get the family to help make by having them roll them up! Make a crepe bar for brunch by putting out a variety of fillings and toppings!

It takes only 7 ingredients, and a couple of pans, and you will have crepes in no time! And if you want to serve them with warm blueberry compote, get the recipe HERE!

Crepes


Ingredients

Scale

Ingredients for crepes: 

  • 1 ½ cups flour 
  • 1 tsp salt 
  • 2 tsp baking powder 
  • 4 tbls powdered sugar 
  • 4 eggs 
  • 1 1/3 cups milk 
  • 2/3 cup water 
  • 1 tsp vanilla 
  • 1 stick butter for greasing the pans

Instructions

Directions for making crepes: 

In a bowl, whisk the flour, salt, baking powder and powdered sugar until no lumps are visible.  Whisk the eggs in a separate bowl. Add milk, water and vanilla to the eggs and whisk to blend. Pour flour mixture over egg mixture and whisk until no lumps exist. Batter should be liquid and smooth. Set batter aside and allow to rest for 20 minutes.  

After the batter has rested, heat 2 9-inch nonstick pans on the stove top. When pans are hot, grease them by rubbing a stick of butter around the pan. Pour ¼ cup of the batter into each pan. Swirl the batter around in the pan to create an even layer in the bottom of the pan. Cook until the underside is a light brown and flip over. Cook on the other side until it is also golden brown. Slide onto a plate and repeat. Roll the cooked crepe into a cigar shape and place onto a pan in a warm oven. 

Serve with fresh strawberries and blueberry compote.
