Crepes

So our children always love it when we make crepes. It normally means a tasty meal with lots of fruit and possibly some icing sugar as well. Sadly, in the past, we haven't made them very often since, with only one frying pan, it takes a while to make enough crepes for six children. That was the past though, now, armed with two frying pans, we will hopefully be able to keep up with the starving masses.




Ingredients:
  • 1½ cups milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup flour
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons oil


Just dump all these ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Turn your burner to medium, poor a thin layer of batter onto the pan (I normally roll the pan around to get the batter to flow out to the edges), and cook for about 30 seconds to a minute until light brown. Flip, cook for another 15-30 seconds, done. We normally eat them with icing sugar and a little bit of fruit, but you can try almost anything on them. I just roll them up and eat them sort of like a taco, but eating them with a fork works as well, especially for children.

This recipe normally makes enough for 2 to 3 people. It can take a little practice to get the batter thin enough, and then to be able to flip them successfully. Kelli is usually pretty happy to let me cook the crepes since I have mastered the art, so if at first your crepes fall apart when you flip them just keep trying.
