French Crêpes

This French delicacy is often associated with Brittany, but is very popular all over France and much of Europe.  It’s much like a thin pancake (UK) and is extremely versatile when it comes to fillings, omit the sugar and vanilla and you can also have a savory crêpe, garnishing it with meats, vegetables and eggs.  The sweet crêpe can be served with fruit, creams, chocolate, and sauces, whatever you fancy, which makes it perfect for a family gathering.  Crêpes are normally served at dinner in France or for dessert; it’s not very common to eat at breakfast.

It’s important to use a non-stick pan that is very hot before you pour the batter in, tilting it helps spread the mixture making the perfect thin crêpe.  I adapted this recipe from my French friend!  Bon Appétit!
