Why not make a complete and balanced meal with crepes?! Follow my recipe…
Ingredients for 3 persons (6 large crepes)
For the crepe batter:
- 2 eggs
- 500 ml of semi-skimmed milk
- 2 teaspoons of sunflower oil
- 1 pinch of salt
- 200 g of flour
For the cooking:
- 2 teaspoons of sunflower
Specific material: a non-stick pan (about 25 cm in diameter), paper towel to remove excess oil from the pan, a ladle to pour the batter into the pan, a spatula to flip the crepes.
In a mixing bowl, break the eggs and beat them into an omelette.
Add milk, oil (2 teaspoons) and salt. Mix.
Add the flour gradually while whipping the preparation to avoid lumps.
Mix until you have a smooth and liquid paste.
Cover the mixing bowl with a plastic film.
Put the crepes batter in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. This rest period reduces the elasticity of gluten: the batter will spread more easily in the pan at the time of cooking.
After 30 minutes, remove the batter from the fridge: the batter has a little thickened because the starch swells with water. Whisk the mixture to obtain a homogeneous mixture again. If the batter is too thick, add a little water or milk.
In a frying pan (25 cm diameter), heat a teaspoon of oil over medium heat, spreading it out with paper towel.
Keep the paper towel soaked in excess oil.
Using a ladle, pour some batter into the pan and spread it out.
Cook for a few minutes over medium heat.
When the first side is cooked, flip and cook the other side for a few minutes.
Place your cooked crepe on a plate.
Wipe your pan with the paper towel soaked in oil. You can add a teaspoon of oil every 3 crepes approximately.
Repeat step 6 until the batter is gone.
Cover the crepes until serving.
If you want to eat hot crepes, you can reheat them in the microwave for 1 minute just before serving.
Garnish your crepes with the ingredients of your choice.
Roll your crepe and enjoy!!!
