Homemade crepes – Made from scratch in a regular frying pan! Eat these with your favorite fruit preserves or dust them with sugar!
Well this is my favorite dessert ever, probably because as a child I ate this a lot. I’ve been making these for as long as I can remember. They are easy to make, and the best part is that you can fill them with anything you like. My favorite filling is nutella, or just any plain old jam, raspberry, strawberry, blueberry, apricot, whatever you have in your fridge. I’m making them now because my husband bought this great blueberry Saskatoon jam, and it would be a waste not to make some crepes for it. Another way these crepes are served, is with a cheese filling inside usually made from ricotta, eggs, sugar, sour cream and raisins and folded into squares then baked for a few minutes, but for today I’m sticking with the awesome Saskatoon blueberry jam.
These crepes are very versatile, they could even be made savory and filled with chicken, or mushrooms or anything you can imaging. No matter which way you make them, they are simply delicious.
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp of sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ¼ tsp salt
- 2 cups of milk
- 1 cup of flour
- 1 tbsp butter
- oil for frying
- Mix all the ingredients in a mixer really well and let sit for a few minutes.
- In the meantime heat a non stick frying pan with a ½ tsp of oil really well. It is very important that the pan is very hot.
- Pour ¾ of a ladle of the crepe mixture into the pan and spread the mixture to cover the entire pan, by rotating the pan. Leave about 1 to 2 min per side then flip over.
- Repeat steps until you've prepared all the crepes.
- When you're done use your favorite jam and spread about a tsp of jam per crepe, then roll the crepe.
