The third time in one day, I’m on fire!! Literally.. because these crêpes are gonna be on fire.. !
Well, what we have here is a very basic French crêpe recipe. Remember that the crêpes are not pancakes..
The crêpes are to be combined in many ways. Chocolate, honey, cream, strawberries, yogurt… anything! YOu have to use your imagination. But for those who have never tried them, i recommend basic chocolate, honey and jam!
Well, here it is!
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup water
- A pinch of salt
- 1 tablespoon of sugar
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- Orange peel ( grated)
In a large bowl, insert the water and the milk, after that sift in the flour and stir until there is no little bubbles or grains of flour. Add the sugar, salt and the butter. After that add the eggs. Stir well. Add the orange peel and if you want some anise to aromatize it.
Leave the mixture in the fridge for 1 hour.
Heat a girdle and butter it so the crêpes wont stick. Pour some of the batter onto the gridle and spread it out tilting the pan in a circular motion. You have to have a even surface ( more or less )
You turn the crêpe over once the crêpe has a golden color with a fork. Once turned, more or less after 30 seconds more and they will be done.When you are going to serve them, you can add a little cognac and flame it, right after you have flamed it, you can add the jam, honey, sugar, maple syrup whatever you wish!
I recommend chocolate for those chocolate lovers. But you must add the chocolate onto the crêpe once you’ve flipped it. So it well partly melt and the result is amazing. Try them with anything you imagine! Strawberries with yogurt, ice cream, sliced orange with honey (the recipe is also on my blog).. all of these are very healthy and really really tasty.
And that’s it!!!
On what occasion shall you do this? You can do it for your couple, surprise him/her with some crêpes with some fresh orange jucie brekfast at the morning! Snacks.. any time is great!
See you next time, and enjoy!
