Is a Crepe a Pancake

Yes! Crepes are one of my favorite breakfast treats. You can fill them with some many different fillings including fruit, whipped cream, chocolate…

If you are wondering exactly what a crepe is: Crepes are thin pancakes, which originated in France.

Crepes also make a wonderful dessert treat after dinner…give them a try this weekend…I promise you’ll be truly satisfied!

Homemade Crepes

1 cup whole milk
2 large eggs
A pinch of salt
2/3 cups flour
¼ tsp. of vanilla
1 ½ cups oil

Make the batter at least 30 minutes before you plan to cook.

In a blender combine all ingredients and blend until combined. Place batter in your refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

Cooking Crepes:
In a very shallow pan, heat a small amount of oil. Ladle in some of the batter into the pan and begin to tilt around the pan so that the batter evenly coats the entire bottom of the pan. Cook for about 3 minutes, then flip. You want the crepes to be a golden brown, like a pancake.
Fill your crepes with whatever you choose. I like to fill crepes with whipped cream and strawberries.
