Food 102: Crepes

It is finally summer for everyone and summer brings long and relaxing mornings with no pressure to go to school (well, for some of us.) Summer break is essentially a calming season full of gorgeous weather and fun days. I like to try new things during such a time, especially with cooking. I figured crepes would be the perfect way to start the day. There is something so delightful and tasty about them! I loved making them so I wanted to share with you all the recipe.

Ingredients:
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • Enough solid butter to coat the pan with.
Directions:

1) Gather all your ingredients and put them in a blender.
2) Use the pulse option for 10 seconds.
3) After, place the crepe batter you just made in the refrigerator for 1 hour. I suggest you do this part the night before so you don't have to wait in the morning. This will make everything easier. NOTE: The batter can last in the fridge for up to forty-either hours so you don't have to worry about it going bad.
4) When you're ready to make them, heat a small non-stick pan and add butter to coat.
5) Pour 1 ounce of batter into the center of the pan and swirl the pan carefully so it spreads out evenly.
6) You then cook it for 30 seconds and flip. Cook for another 10 seconds and then move it to a flat surface (preferably a cutting board or plate). Lay them out flat so they can cool.
7) Repeat steps 5 and 6 until all the batter is gone.

After they have cooled off you can eat and enjoy them! But that's not it. Crepes taste great with all sorts of things. You can make them into a burrito, stick fruit inside, or you can drizzle melted chocolate on it like a dessert. Crepes also taste great with syrup, powder, you name it! It's your chance to be creative so by all means put your own twist on it! Use it in an entre or dessert. They can be stuffed with chicken, pesto, and mushrooms for a savory crepe, or for a sweet crepe they can be stuffed with fruit and cream, nutella, peanut butter and chocolate.

Hopefully I have introduced you all to something you will enjoy and make several times more!
