Bring a little bit of France to your home!
• 140g plain flour
• 200ml whole milk
• 2 Skea eggs
• 25g unsalted butter, melted, plus a little extra for greasing
Crepes are a great option for breakfast or dessert. Just fill with your choice of savoury our sweet fillings. We love them with fruit and cream.
Sift the flour with a pinch of salt into a medium-sized bowl and make a well in the middle. Mix the milk and 100ml of water together. Break the eggs into the well and start whisking slowly. Gradually add the milk and water in a steady stream, whisking constantly. Whisk until the batter is smooth and all the flour has been incorporated. Set the batter aside to rest for 20-30 mins, then whisk the melted butter into the batter. Heat the pan over a medium heat. Lightly grease the pan with melted butter. Using a ladle, pour roughly 2 tbsp of batter into the pan and swirl it around so the bottom of the pan is evenly coated. You want to use just enough batter to make a delicate, lacy pancake. Cook the pancake for about 45 secondss on one side until golden and then using a palette knife or fish slice, flip the pancake over and cook the other side for about 30 seconds. Slide the pancake out of the pan and either serve immediately or stack on a plate with baking parchment in between. Continue until all the batter is used up.
You can add flavours to your crepes. Try adding orange or lemon zest, a pinch of cinnamon or even finely chopped herbs to the batter, depending on what you want to fill the pancakes with.
