How to cook: Breakfast crêpes

Good morning, everyone! 

It is finally the weekend, so we are preparing some delicious crêpes for breakfast. Don’t be intimidated by its fancy name, crêpes can be prepared rather quickly (and eaten even quickier) with some ingredients you probably already have at home and not too much effort.

This is our own version of making crêpes; we have developed some “modifications” that make crêpes more enjoyable on their own (but of course we still recommend you filling or topping them with something).

Also, this is not some kind of “healthy crêpe” or anything like that. This is a high-sugar recipe that you may want to avoid if you are concerned by this!

Ingredients for 4 servings:

  • 300 g flour
  • 3 whole eggs
  • 6 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 50 g melted butter
  • 600 ml whole milk
  • 2 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch of salt

Preparation:

If you have a food processor or blender, you can use it. It will make the whole process really fast and effortless. If you don’t, well, it will take a bit of effort and time, but these crêpes definitely deserve it 🙂

Add all of the abovementioned ingredients into a bowl or food processor, mix until smooth. That’s all for the batter. It is generally recommended to let it sit for 1 hour or so before the next step.

Lightly grease a pan, heat it at medium-high and pour a small amount of the batter into it (the amount will depend on the type of pan). 

Once you see no raw batter on the top part, flip the crêpe very carefully (it is very delicate and it could break apart).

After a few seconds, put it away on a plate and repeat the process until no batter is left in the bowl.

Presentation and how to best enjoy your crêpes

You can fill the crêpes with whatever you like the most. Our personal favourites are strawberry jam and sugar, but another worldwide favourite is Nutella. Do not hesitate to fill them with anything you want. Just keep in mind that while salty crêpes are a thing, this may not be the best recipe for them, so maybe just stick to sweet fillings.

Then you can fold the crêpe as a burrito (long, cylindrical) or fold it by half twice, leaving some sort of a triangle shape. We personally prefer the second one but you can experiment to find your personal favourite, of course 🙂

Bon appétit!
