Fabulous Food Friday #110

With all of my pregnancies, I am easily influenced when it comes to seeing food and wanting it right away. A commercial or a show and don’t get me started on the Food Network!

A few weeks ago I was watching TV and I saw the most delicious crepes. Instantly the craving started and I knew it would not subside until I had some form of sweet crepes.

Now, I’ve only had crepes twice in my life. Once my freshman year in high school. I was taking French and our teacher gave a whole cooking lesson in French on crepes. They were delicious.

The second time was at my friend, Jamie’s house for a church activity years ago. Luckily, I found her recipe in a neighborhood cook book that was also created years ago. Even though I haven’t talked to her in forever…she still makes the best crepes (in my opinion)!

1 1/2 cups flour
1 TBSP sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups milk
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 TBSP butter, melted

In a large bowl whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a small bowl whisk together milk, eggs and vanilla. Add to dry ingredients and beat together until well mixed. Heat a medium skillet over medium heat and melt butter. Add the melted butter to batter and combine. For each crepe, pour 1/3 cup batter into hot skillet and tilt the pan until you’ve created about a 5″ circle. Cook until light brown (about 1-2 minutes) and then using a rubber spatula, flip over and continue to cook for another minute or until light brown. Serve warm.

*I filled mine with fresh berries and whipped cream, then dowsed them in powdered sugar. Other filling options can be jam, sour cream, pudding, or fresh fruit.

    My Dad served his mission in Belgium. Growing up he served us crepes with lemon juice and powdered sugar. It's really good!
