Bonjour Monsieur Crepe!


For as long as I can remember, I have been wanting to learn how to make Crepes.  Yes, I know.. they are easy to do.. but when you are talking to someone who burns water.. its a bit of a stretch.   After researching tons of crepe pans on Amazon ( im leaning towards this one: http://amzn.to/1ft2Tzm ), I figured I would go on youtube and get a recipe for it.  I wanted the fam to wake up to something different in the morning…

I woke up early , threw on “Dolores” by Seth Ford Young, and got to Crepe making..   I’ll share an _after_ image later… right now I think somethings burning..

  1. RC! As a culinary school grad, and former executive chef-turned-photographer, I applaud you in your endeavor. I use the following pan: http://amzn.to/1fyyLCY. Anything similar would be excellent. As a bonus, here’s my family’s crepe recipe. It’s a little non-standard, as it’s from Hungarian decent, but we love it. Simply pour ~1/4c into the center of the pan at medium heat, and slowly rotate the pan to let the crepe take shape. Enjoy!

    2 eggs
    1 c milk
    1c flour
    1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    1/4 c sugar
    1/4 tsp salt

    Mix eggs, flour, and milk until smooth. Stir in remaining remaining ingredients. Using a rubber spatula, gently work up the edges of the crepe, gently spinning the pan atop the burner until it breaks loose. Flip, and cook just long enough to set the top. We enjoy Nutella, peanut butter, apple butter (my favorite), or any other preserves. For a fancy twist, roll some completed crepes and return to the pan. With the pan away from the heat, drizzle some orange marmalade mixed with Grand Marnier on top, return to the heat, and allow the liqueur to flambe (may need to do this manually). Shake a little powdered sugar on top, and enjoy!

    Best of luck in your culinary trials!
