Hello lovely people, it’s still happy Easter (well, at least for mua) and a time to really reflect on what the Lord did for man. It just reminds us HOW MUCH He loves us and the suffering for our sake to bring us closer to Him. Is that not amazing? Hmm, funny how we don’t always appreciate God’s love and don’t extend love to our neighbour, let alone our community. Food for thought……
Its breakfast morning Easter weekend and there were thoughts on what to have for breakfast. The kids obviously went for their bowls of cereal lol but we wanted something light, simple and a bit more adventurous. We have been having pancakes with different toppings until I decided we were gonna have crepes *smiles* (French style pancakes which are thinner than the usual pancakes). I had seen slight variations for making crepes. I chose to put some vanilla essence to make vanilla crepes. You can be adventurous and try it with honey maybe? Its very simple to make and very tasty with cream, syrup and fruits
Ingredients for 5 large crepes
1 cup of plain or all purpose flour
1 cup fresh milk
1 egg (some recipes say two eggs)
½ tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 tbsp melted unsalted butter
Please note: the cup measurements used a 250ml measuring cup.
Suggestion: If you can’t get unsalted butter, and you used normal butter for instance, you will have to eliminate the ½ tsp salt?.
Mix the flour, egg and milk in a mixing bowl
Then add the vanilla essence, salt and melted butter. Mix well and allow to rest for a few minutes.
Meanwhile, get a greased frying pan ready. When hot, pour in the batter using a deep cooking spoon (a spoon at a time)then swirl the frying pan (It’s a bit like frying egg where you swirl the frying pan and allow the egg to go all round the pan)
Allow to cook for 2 minutes, and then flip over
(as seen in the picture, you will notice some air bubbles in the crepes as they cook)
Once the other side is cooked
Remove and place on your plate ( use foil paper or baking sheet to retain the heat whilst you make the next crepe). Repeat until you have used up the batter. Remember to re-grease your pan each time
And its ready….
I have topped mine with some maple syrup, sprinkles of sugar (yes, I needed that burst of energy) and some red grapes
An absolute winner!
Have a great week 🙂
Remember “keep making it happen”!
Blessings and love
