This takes me back to my childhood, spending the night at my girlfriend Angie’s house & waking up to Bill (Angie’s Dad) making crepes with melted butter and powdered sugar. They were so amazing!! Throughout my life, I have had crepes filled with all sorts of jams, jellies & lemon curd. Nothing tastes as good as the way Bill made them for me when I was a kid… melted butter & powdered sugar. Very simple but absolutely perfect.
How to Make Crepes Batter:
- 4 eggs
- 1 1/3 cup milk
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tbsp melted butter
- 2 tbsp white sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp salt
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl; use an immersion blender for best results. Make sure there are no lumps in the batter.
How to Cook Crepes:
Heat a bit of butter in a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Side Note: You can also use cooking spray.
Using a small ladle, spoon about 3-4 tablespoons of crepe batter into the hot pan. Tilt the pan clockwise so that the batter spreads evenly over the entire bottom of the small skillet. Cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute; flip for 20 seconds then remove from the pan. Side Note: Most people only cook one side but I cook both.
- Powder sugar (sifted)
Remove from pan and place on a plate. Spread a bit of butter onto the crepe and then sift powdered sugar over the butter.
Roll and place on another plate for serving or eat while it’s hot. Enjoy.
