French Crepes
French Crêpes

 

I love French crêpes. My husband is also a big fan of crêpes. When I tell him “we are eating crêpes for dinner”, he is so impatient to eat the first bite!

The first crêpe is never a big success, don’t worry about your first one. Continue to cook 🙂

I always make sweet crêpes. We love crêpes with sugar, nutella, jam , salted caramel or just with a dab of melted butter. It’s a perfect dessert! It’s also great for breakfast.

If you want a savory version, do not add sugar or alcohol in your batter, and fill them with whatever you want : a creamy mushroom filling, caramelized onions with spinach and roasted red pepper or just the classic version -egg fried, ham and cheese.

Here is my best recipe for crêpes. I adore Cyril Lignac’s recipes. Thanks to this French Chef for all his wonderful recipes!

 

Serves : 12 crêpes  Preparation time : 10 minutes  Resting time for the batter : at least 30 minutes  Cook time :35 minutes

Ingredients :

  • 250 gr (2 cups) flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 50 cl (2 cups) milk
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons Rum (optional)
  • butter (to coat the pan)

Directions :

  1. In a small bowl, mix the eggs with a fork.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the flour and the salt.
  3. Pour the half of the milk, mix again.
  4. Add eggs, sugar, oil and the remaining milk. And mix well.
  5. Add rum.
  6. Rest the dough for at least 30 minutes at room temperature.
  7. Heat a medium non-stick pan. Add butter to coat (you only need a light coating). Let sure your pan is hot and pour one ladle of batter into the center of the pan and swirl to spread evenly. Cook for 2 minutes to medium high heat and flip (I use a spatula to do it). Bring it down to medium heat, cook for another 1 minute and remove it. Lay them out flat on a plate and cover with a dish towel, so they don’t get dry. Continue until all batter is gone (do not forget the butter to coat your pan before pouring a ladle of batter).

Enjoy!
