French Recipe

Dish: Crepe

- 1 c. all-purpose flour
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tbsp. granulated sugar
- 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
- 1 1/2 c. whole milk
- 1 tbsp. butter
extra- banana and whip cream.


Preparation:

  1. In a mixing bowl, add flour, salt, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. With a whisk, start mixing everything together slowly while incorporating the milk. Add the butter last.
  2. Let the batter rest for 1 hour at room temperature with plastic wrap on top, then strain to a chinois so your batter is very smooth.
  3. Heat your skillet and pour the batter into the skillet using a small ladle. Tilt and swirl the pan in a circular motion to evenly coat the entire pan. Let this cook for a minute and then flip it for another 30 seconds.
  4. Pile the crepes on the same plate so they stay warm and moist. Enjoy with your favorite toppings, or simply top the crepes with sugar.
