All these years I've struggled with brit made pancakes, never quite managing the light slightly crispy Crepes that the french mum's make here without blinking, well now I've found the recipe of my crepe dreams....
Here in France we celebrate Fete de la Chandeleur and it falls on 2nd February and I always celebrate Shrove Tuesday too (12th Feb this year) :)
I do like to observe the traditions, especially when they involve food... so here's the recipe :)
It made 12-15 normal size pancakes
50cl (500ml) milk
1 tablespoon sugar & few drops vanilla
Melt butter (I put it in micro)
heat milk slightly (put it in micro)
Put flour into food mixer, add the eggs and sugar and vanilla. Then slowly add in the milk, mix for a minute on slow speed, add in the melted butter and mix again. Then sieve the mixture and leave for 2 hours.
Cook as normal...
And you will end up with light and fluffy Crepes, I think just a bit of Lemon juice squeezed over the top would be yummy, although here we have Nutella or even strawberry jam (don't knock it until you've tried it
Now you know what we're having for tea on Saturday :)
