"Delicious and Easy: A Homemade Crepe Recipe for Every Day Cooks"


I want to preface this by saying I am not a fancy cook. I cook by necessity because my 7-year-old son has to eat and, in this economy, I want to turn my house into every restaurant I can to avoid eating out. We enjoy food in this house. As a mother, I wanted food and memories in the kitchen to be something my son would tell his friends one day. I want the house filled with hungry teens. Every morning and after a few soccer practices, they know they can come over and eat homemade food.


I don't like when I click the link for a recipe and all I get is a mushy story, so I will make this the last paragraph that is not the recipe. I found this crepe recipe on Pinterest (of course). It is beginner friendly and easy to make. I love the texture of the crepes and the subtle sweetness. It gives you the opportunity to add your own flair without worry. If you enjoy savory crepes or decadent crepes, this crepe will allow the flavors you choose to be the star of the dish.


The video attached is from my YouTube channel to show you that I am a mom that cooks not a cook who happens to be a mom, but we can always have fun and try new things!








 


The Ingredients

2 large eggs 1 natural flavored oil (I used olive)

1 cup of flour 2 tbsp unsalted butter

1/4 tsp of salt 1/2 cup whole milk

1 tbsp of sugar 1/2 cup of water

1 tsp vanilla extract A baking bowl


Let's Make Crepes


Grease your skillet and set the fire to low. You will want a warm skillet to make your crepes once you're done whisking together the ingredients. In a large baking bowl, put eggs, milk, vanilla, sugar, and salt inside. Whisk the ingredients together. Next add flour and water. Whisk again until it is a light and thin consistency. Add melted butter (microwave 30 secs on and off until butter is completely melted). Whisk a little more.


Scoop 1/4 cup of batter. In your hot skillet, pour the batter in. Swirl into a thin layer. Cook for about 30 seconds on each side. The sides will look cooked as a signal for you to flip it over. Once you've flipped each side, place your crepe on a plate.


From here, repeat until all batter is gone. Dress your crepes however you like and enjoy!






 

My notes about this Recipe


The original recipe came from How to Make Crepes - Eats Delightful. I found it while scrolling on Pinterest and had to give it a try. The taste was perfect. It wasn't too sweet. The sweetness that was there was subtle. I added a berry glaze which added more than enough sugar. My 7-year-old son ate them all, which always makes me happy. I definitely do not have the technique down to get those nice circular crepes, but once I fold them and eat them, does it really matter......
