Preparation Time : 5 mn (+ at least 20mn in the fridge)
Ingredients (for 15 to 20 crepes):
7/8 lbs (400g) of all purpose flour
1 3/4 cup (475ml) of milk
1/2 oz of vanilla flavoured sugar
1 pinch of salt
1 teaspoon of rhum (or cointreau for example)
1 small piece of butter
1/ Blend flour, eggs, sugar and salt.
2/ Gradually add milk. Stir well until smooth. Add alcohol.
3/ Leave in the fridge for at least 20 mn.
4/ Heat a frying pan over medium high heat. Melt butter. (Be careful not to put too much butter, your crepes would be too greasy and not easy to cook).
5/ Pour about 1/4 cup of mixture in the pan making a circle. Then tilt the pan with a circular motion so the mixture fills the pan evenly. (Click here to buy crepes cooking material)
Note: crepes are supposed to be really thin, if you make them like pancakes, it won’t be good at all. (If you’re having a hard time filling the pan, you may consider adding a little milk so your mixture is more liquid).
6/ Cook crepe for about 2mn or until borders peel off and bottom is slightly brown. Turn and cook the other side (1mn should be enough).
7/ Eat it warm with marmelade, chocolate, sugar, applesauce or whatever sweet thing you have in your kitchen!
