Crêpes

326.  Do you love crêpes?  Do you dream about them slathered with chocolate, nutella or peanut butter?  With whipped cream, bananas and berries crowning the top?  Are you hungry yet?

This crêpe recipe is the easiest and most satisfying and you have to try it!

Crêpes

2 cups flour
3 eggs, mixed
1/4 cup melted butter
3 Tablespoons sugar
3 cups milk adding 1/2 cup at a time
pinch of salt

Blend flour, egg, butter, sugar, salt and milk.  Add more milk as necessary.
Heat a non stick pan and add 1/2 cup batter to hot pan and swirl to cover bottom.  Watch the cooking process and when light browning occurs turn the crepe over and brown lightly on the second side.
Remove to a plate and fill with your choice of filling on half of the crêpe.  Fold in half and in quarter. Transfer to serving plate.

sour cream or creme fraiche
whipped cream for sweet version
Optional Fillings
Sweet:  Lingonberry Jam, any type of jam, fresh fruit, peanut butter, nutella, chocolate spread, banana
Savory:  Swiss Cheese, ham, cottage cheese, chopped sautéed mushrooms
 I used a whisk to blend the batter to eliminate lumps well.  So satisfying and I think this will create a new craving in your life.  You must try them!

"...sprinkled with sugar and eaten hot, they form an exquisite dish. They have a golden hue and are tempting to eat. Thin and transparent like muslin, their edges are trimmed to resemble fine lace. They are so light that after a good dinner, a man from Agen is still willing to sample three or four dozen of them! Crêpes form an integral part of every family celebration. Served with white wine, they take pride of place on all joyful occasions."
-Anatole France, Jacques Anatole Francois Thibault
