After our Pancakes a couple of weeks ago, I decided I wanted some crepes, so for breakfast (well lunch by the time we both got up today!) I made some crepes. Rob hadn't really had crepes before and wasn't all that impressed, however I thought they were delicious! I had mine with sliced strawberries and nutella. And now quite fancy making some for something savoury later.
The first one or two didn't turn out too well in shape as I hadn't got the technique right for flipping the thin crepe, but they still tasted great.
But I soon got the hang of it and was making great crepes.
Makes 8-10 crepes
1 cup plain flour
1 tsp white sugar
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups milk
2 tbsp butter, melted
1. Sift together the flour, sugar and salt, mix and set to the side.
2. In a large bowl, beat the eggs and milk together with an electric mixer.
3. Beat in the flour mixture until smooth.
4. Stir in the melted butter.
5. Heat a frying pan over medium high heat and spray on a little cooking spray.
6. Pour a ladle of the batter into the pan, tip and rotate the pan to spread the batter as thinly as possible.
7. Cook for 1 minute and flip. Cook for one minute then remove from the pan. Keep it warm until you have cooked all your crepes (remember to add a little cooking spray for each crepe).
It should take about 15-20 minutes to prepare and cook your whole batch.
