But it's an easy and fast one. And most of all ... my daughter and my husband can make it !
To be totally honest, I've called them "les crepes de papa" (Daddy's crepes), because Vincent always cook them.
You'll have the great chance to admire his hand in this post ;)
My girl likes to cook. I've got some pictures of her, when she's was 3 years old, watching the food network on TV.
She made this recipe for the blog.
So, for this recipe, you'll need :
- 3 eggs
- 250 grammes flour
- 80 grammes of white sugar
- 400 ml of milk
- 1 tablespoon of vanilla
- 14 grammes of vanilla sugar (if you don't have, no problem, just add a little bit more of vanilla)
- 1 teaspoon of brown rum.... If you don't want to use rum, for your children or what else reason, use a teaspoon of orange blossom. If you want to try with rum, I want to comfort you : the alcohol will disappear when you'll cook the crepes.
- A little bit of water
- Some neutral oil, for the pan.
Add the sugar and the eggs together and whip them.
Step 2 :
Add the vanilla sugar ... You can also add it at the beginning, with the white sugar. I just have a chicken brain, sometimes ...
Step 3 :
Add the milk, and stir, with a whisk.
Step 4 :
Add the flour and whisk with energy. Don't be afraid at all if it's going lumpy. Do your best, and we'll kill the lump at the end.
Step 5 :
Add the water.
Step 6 :
Add the teaspoon of rum (or the orange blossom). My daughter tells : "... Ho, how I love this smell !!" ... I think I have to be careful ;)
Step 7 :
Add the tablespoon of vanilla, and stir with the whisk.
Step 8 : Not for the emotional persons ...
You see this little white points ?
OK, if you can't because of the bad quality of the picture, just trust me : There are lump ...
We're going to kill them, we're going to EXPLODE them ...
Use a hand blender and don't hesitate !
If you've got time, let it in the fridge for one hour. If you don't have time, don't worry ... Neither do I !
Step 9 :
Now, my daughter stops to work and my husband begins !
The neutral oil will serve to oil the pan between each crepes
If you have a pan for crepes, that's better. If not, use any kind of small but thick one.
The fire must be very high at the start, and in the middle, when you'll make your first crepes.
Let the pan become real hot.
Don't worry if your first crepes are not pretty, that's normal.
Use an absorbent paper (paper towel ?). Put a little bit of oil on it, and oil your pan.
Step 10 :
Pour a ladle of liquid in your pan.
Make turn the pan ...
Yes ... Ladies, here is the KING OF CREPES ! ... At least, at my home !
Step 11 :
Wait for 2 minutes, maximum.
And turn the crepe. If you're an adventurer, make them fly ! My husband is not. Remember, in life, we can't have everything ;)
Once again, only for you ;) :
That's it !
You can keep them for 3 days, but KEEP THEM IN FRIDGE ! The eggs and the milk don't like the ambient temperature.
Eat them with all you like : Nutella, brown or white sugar, jam, apple and caramel ...etc ...
Bon appétit !
