Basic Crepes for Bakeroose

Okay Bakeroose. This is Chef Tess. I wanted to share a new something fun you can make with your mom and dad. We made them for dessert tonight for our Monday night "Family Night" after family games. Sometimes we make pancakes or biscuits for breakfast. Some times we make crepes. They are pretty awesome. This week's our wedding anniversary. We wanted to share something fun. I made crepes on the first date I went on with my husband. So...this seemed perfect for anniversary week.

Basic Crepes

4 eggs
1 cup water
2 tsp vanilla

1 c. flour
1 T. sugar
1/3 c. instant powdered milk
1/2 tsp. salt
to that ad Blend in blender or really well by hand.

Now...for those who want the play by play on how to cook these little cuties. Combine the dry ingredients. I added a grate of fresh nutmeg.

In a separate container, combine the wet ingredients very well. Add the wet to the dry and mix until all the lumps are gone. You may have to use a stainer. The batter should be just thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.

Use a very small amount of oil in a non-stick skillet. I use an 8 inch skillet...and

Medium low heat. If your pan is too hot the crepe batter will start to cook before you can coat the pan with it. Little Man said, "Mom, you're famous for gas." I know he meant using a gas stove...but then he said, "Oooo. The eternal blue flame." I'm still laughing thinking about it.

I use 1/4 cup batter and just roll the pan around until the batter lightly coats the bottom of the pan. Cook 2-3 minutes on one side and then gently turn over.

Usually you'll have one side that gets a little more brown than the other. Look at these though!
Now, on our first date, We filled the crepes with cottage cheese and some fresh fruit the first time I ever had them. They're awesome with cheesecake filling (you can get that already made if you want)
We then had to drizzle something. Drizzle is not optional in my family. We drip. We drizzle. We enjoy the food experience. Especially this one.
We used homemade sauce, but you can very easily make your own by adding a few tablespoons of juice to 1 cup of seedless jam.

There you go. Crepe away!
