French Crepes

French Crepes

I love crepes –  who doesn’t?  I like mine for breakfast, early in the morning especially if someone makes them for me, with lots of honey or warm chocolate sauce. Here in the UK we have them with lemon juice and caster sugar, but most people in the UK often only have crepes (well, they call them pancakes)  in  February, on Shrove Tuesday or ‘Pancake Day’.
I find this amazing as I make crepes whenever I fancy some, although I am told it is supposedly the last day before the fast for the Lent period.  Locally, teams from hotels compete in a pancake race and the winners are always announced in the local paper. Schools get involved too – the children love it as each will bring some pancakes home to their parents. A bit bizarre, but fun, all the same.
I often get asked what the difference is between crepes and pancakes? Well, to me I think pancakes are a little simpler and you can use the same batter as Yorkshire pudding, but with crepes you add some butter to the batter –  that, for me, is the difference, but  I am sure someone out there may know otherwise – let me know!

Right – French Crepes – here we go……

Instructions
  1. Mix everything together and whisk well.
  2. Let it rest for at least 10 mins at room temperature.
  3. Mix again with a metal spoon.
  4. Heat up a non-stick pancake pan on a medium heat.
  5. Once the pancake pan or skillet is nice and hot, wipe lightly with a buttered paper towel, then pour in a small ladle of the batter and swirl the pan. This will give you an evenly round shaped thin pancake.
  6. Cook for two mins then turn over.
  7. Keep doing this until all the batter is used up. Serve with lemon and sugar or honey.
