Week 8: Who knew crepes were actually this easy?!

I really wish I had realized that crepes were this easy to make. I’m in love with crepes, but I always thought they were some magical food that were too complicated to make. Luckily, my friend Alyssa  discovered how simple crepes were  and posted the recipe on her blog a few weeks ago. I finally got a chance to try it out this weekend when my friend came over for dinner so we could catch up.

So here it is, the easiest recipe for crepes.

1 Cup of milk
1 Cup of flour
2 eggs
1 tsp canola oil

1. Mix all of the ingredient together
2. Pour a1/4 cup of batter at a time onto an oiled frying pan (have the stove turned up to medium high heat). Tilt and rotate the pan to coat evenly, making your crepes nice and thin.
3. Cook until the bottom is golden and then flip to cook the other side. When we tried this, we normally ended up with a side that was golden and a side that was golden with some brown spots.
4. Once both sides are golden, remove it from the pan. You can either immediately put your favorite toppings in the crepe and eat it immediately or make all of the crepes at once. My friend and I did the latter and then filled the crepes with our toppings and cooked it for under 30 seconds.

Since we were having crepes for dinner, we decided to try both sweet and savory crepes. For our savory crepes, we filled them with spinach and mozzarella and then dipped it in soy sauce.  We went all out for the sweet crepes, since it was what we were most excited about. My friend filled her first one with Nutella and bananas and I made mine with strawberries and dark chocolate chips. I think we both ended up having two or three each of the sweet crepes. I’ll still probably end up going to my favorite crepes place a lot, at least until I figure out how to make French Toast Crepes.
