A week ago I made crepes with my friends Emma and Heather and I have been obsessed with them ever since. I found a similar recipe online and have been making them regularly as an afternoon snack. The following recipe yield 2 large crepes or 3 small crepes:
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tbsp melted butter
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 tbsp. sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Combine all of the above and mix. Heat up a pan and add oil. Pour the batter onto the pan once the oil is hot as well. Sometimes I use butter instead of oil for the taste. Watch closely and check the underside of the crepe by gently lifting it with a spatula. Once the underneath is cooked to you liking flip it as if it were a pancake.
Once the crepe is cooked, about 2-3 minutes depending on the heat, let it dry. If the crepe is still oily layer paper towels above and underneath. Once cooled, add nutella and fruit of your choice. I like strawberries and bananas in mine, but raspberries and blueberries are nice as well.
My favorite part of making crepes is the ability to experiment. Once you've made a couple feel free to substitute ingredients. For example, nutmeg instead of cinnamon and cream instead of milk. Experimenting is the best part!
