Crêpes for Breakfast

Disclaimer: I am in no way a professional chef/cook, and so the following recipe is one that I personally love. It may not be perfect, but trust me, it’s delicious.

I remember the first time I ever had a crepe, it was one of the greatest moments of my life (I am serious). Who would be able to hold themselves back from eating the goodness that is nutella with this beautiful invention. It is like heaven in my mouth, and nothing could ever ‘beat’ it. So punny, I know.

So, let’s get started, because I cannot hold off my excitement any longer.
This is my famous crepe recipe, according to my twin brothers who are obsessed. Whenever I head back home, the first thing they ask me to do is make them crepes. Believe it or not, 7 year olds can eat a lot of crepes.

Meet my twin brothers. They’re crazy, but what can I say, they are my life.

This is a recipe that makes 4 crepes. I usually eat them alone and refuse to share. So I really cannot claim that it feeds more than one person, if you’re anything like me.

Also, you do not want to see my cooking methods since I NEVER measure anything. But I’ll try my best to put everything into measurements in the following list.

What you’ll need: 
1 1/2 tablespoon butter (melted)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1/3 cup flour
Milk (if you are vegan or lactose intolerant, use almond milk! I always use it, and it turns out the same)

First, put that butter in a bowl.

Melt that butter in the microwave. Then add the flour. Yes I use the same bowl, I am a rebel. crepe7

Crack that egg on top of the flour and butter. Then whisk and whisk.

Now for the milk, it gets confusing cause I never measure it. BUT, all you need to do is add enough milk for it not to be thick, yet not too liquid like. And so, you don’t want the batter to stick to the whisk when you lift it, nor do you want it to be water like. (do you get me?)

The best way to do this is to add a bit of milk, then whisk, see how the consistency is like. Add more milk if it is needed. Whisk it well! We do not want any clumps up in this batter.

Add a teaspoon of vanilla extract. crepe9
Whisk, whisk, whisk. And you’re done!
Now heat up a non-stick pan. Do NOT add butter to the pan, that ruins everything.
The butter in the batter should be enough for it not to stick.

Then use a ladle to add batter to the pan, move the pan around to cover the entire surface, wait for the crepe to cook from the top. Then flip it. Do the same thing again. Tada! You’re done.

You can fill your crepe with so many options! Nutella, honey, butter + cinnamon + sugar, lemon and sugar. So many options! Get creative.

For me, Nutella with almonds is the best combo. Also, strawberries and bananas. YUM!

I hope you enjoyed this recipe! Let me know if you have any questions.
Also, I’ll try to figure out the exact measurement for milk (I promise!). I am thinking of starting a youtube channel soon, so keep an eye out!
