My son loves waffles and pancakes and I make many different variations including ones with chocolate chips, nuts, or fresh fruit folded into the batter. We also like them topped with maple syrup, fresh fruit syrup, and peanut butter for a quick way to enjoy them while running out the door!
I don’t know why I didn’t think to serve him crepes before, they are quick and simple and delicious! I love them for breakfast but they are also fabulous for dessert.
Many people are afraid to tackle crepes because they seem impossible but actually, I’ve found they are almost impossible to mess up! And, I love that you can whip up this recipe in a blender and then store the leftover batter right in the blender in the fridge for the next morning!
This morning I made them for Judah with a good smear of Nutella and lots of sliced up strawberries. We had them yesterday with Nutella and bananas. They are also delicious with yogurt, fresh fruit, peanut butter, chocolate syrup… are there any ways that these are bad?
I make them in a regular stainless steel pan – a nonstick pan is not required (and I don’t use them!) as long as you use a little butter before adding the batter.
1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup all purpose flour
3 large eggs
3 tablespoons butter, melted (plus more for buttering the pan)
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
sliced strawberries (or any other fruit that you enjoy)
Place all the ingredients (except the strawberries and Nutella) into a blender. Blend until the ingredients are mixed well and a batter is formed.
Heat pan over medium to medium-low. Place some butter in the pan and make sure the entire pan has a good coating. Using a ladle, ladle in some of the batter (the trick is not to make them too thick – so only put in enough batter that you coat the bottom of the pan with a thin layer). Swirl the pan to even out the batter.
They don’t take long! Check for two things – the middle to look done and the bottom to be brown. You don’t flip it! Just lift the crepe with a heat proof spatula to check that the bottom is brown and if so, scoop it out or flip it out onto the plate.
Smear with a heaping teaspoon of Nutella and place straberries down the center. Fold up and enjoy!
