crepes

The recipe for crepes is not hard to find, but it's just one of those things that we don't ever think about making. So we did this week. So easy. Filled them with whipped cream and fresh fruit (raspberries, blueberries and strawberries). Looked rather patriotic, just in time for the Fourth of July.



CREPES

4 eggs
1/4 tsp. salt
2 c. flour
2 1/4 c. milk
1/2 stick (4 Tbsp.) melted butter

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and the eggs. Gradually add in the milk, stirring to combine. Add the salt and melted butter; beat until smooth. Heat a lightly oiled 9" frying pan over medium heat. Using a 1/4 c. measuring cup, scoop the batter into the pan. Immediately tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly. Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a spatula, turn and cook the other side. Serve hot. Fill with your favorite fresh fruit, rolled up in the crepe, and sprinkle a little powdered sugar on top.

These are also good with yogurt mixed inside with the fruit and a little syrup on top.

We love crepes at our house. We sprinkle on a little powdered sugar and then squeeze some fresh lemon or lime juice on the crepe. It makes a little icing. YUMMY!!!

Wow! Just had to comment on your great photography on both the crepe and the shrimp linguine!! Having worked for a food manufacturer for years, I know that there is a whole industry that does food photography so it actually looks edible. Yours turned out so appetizing!!

I also love crepes with Nutella or just cinnamon sugar. I now have a humongous craving for crepes!
