I used to make crepes quite regularly when I lived alone, but somehow after I moved to Chennai, the thought of going into my kitchen and cooking is not so appetizing. Well, I tried my hand at it last night and it was really good – am so glad I did go in and do it. It is very easy to make and gives you a change from the usual meal options. Its great for breakfast and gives you a bit of protein, fat and carbohydrate not to mention vegetables to keep you going through the day. The best part is that you can make the filling as healthful or sinful as you’d like! 🙂
I made an accompanying filling of sauteed spinach, mushrooms and onions with a sprinkling of slivered almonds. That is actually my favorite filling. My husband loves banana and nutella crepes.
Combine 1 cup milk, 4 eggs (beaten), 1 cup all-purpose flour, a dash of salt and 2 tbsp of melted butter. After combining, leave aside for 1/2 hour. Heat a crepe pan (or any pan that has a flat base) and ladle 1/4 cup of the mixture into it. Swirl the pan to make sure the mixture is evenly spread. Turn over when set.
What are your favorite crepe fillings? I’d love to experiment with some new ones.
