With ingredients that you already have in your kitchen, you can make a delicious and deceptively easy sweet or savory dish: Crêpes. Here’s the recipe I used last night to make some for my family.
– 1 cup flour
– 1 egg
– 1/2 cup milk
– 1/2 cup water
– 1 tbsp. melted butter
Mix all the ingredients together until the batter is smooth. The consistency should be thin and fairly runny. Pour 1/4 cup batter into a greased and heated pan, tilting the pan around so that the batter covers the surface in a thin layer. Once batter is almost dry, flip (about one minute on each side.) Yields about 4 crepes.
Once you’ve made the crêpes you can fill them with any combination of things. Add meats, cheeses, and vegetables and you have what the french call a ‘galette.’ We like ours with spinach, mushrooms, chopped tomatoes, and feta, sauteed with olive oil and garlic.
For dessert, fill your crêpe with a simple mixture of butter and cinnamon sugar, or, my favorite, with strawberries, banana, and Nutella.
