Crepes (by guest blogger)

Today I have a guest blogger.  My DD, Al (10 yr).  Recently, her favourite teacher explained how crepes are made.  Inspired, she came home and told me she knows how to make crepes. Today she is going to blog and share our recipe with you.

HELLO everyone who is reading this blog. Today I would like to show you how to make CREPES !

Ingredients

  •  1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 rounded tbsp plain flour
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp oil

Firstly, we would need a non-stick frying pan, a mixing bowl and a whisk.

Put all the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl.  Then add the wet ingredients (if you add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, the batter will be lumpy) .  Stir the mixture together with a whisk until the mixture is smooth. Heat up your non-stick frying pan.

Now comes the hard part. Using your ladle, scoop the batter and pour it in the middle of the pan. Then hold the handle of the frying pan and swirl the frying pan. If you don’t do that part quickly or evenly, you will have a crepe that looks like a spider. Leave it to cook on low fire until the edges start to curl a little.  That means it’s ready to flip.  Flip it and let it cook until the bottom starts to brown a little.  After that, use a spatula and carefully pick it up and put it on a plate.

Now is my favorite part:D. Take fruits (like berries, bananas), jam, cheese, peanut butter or just simply butter and honey  (whatever that you like) and spread it on the freshly made crepes and fold your crepe into a rectangle or cone. AND YOU’RE DONE MAKING YOUR CREPES!(not shouting) 😉

BYE!
