crepes

Hey Everybody, Happy Pancake Tuesday

If you are looking for a quick and easy recipe for this evening here is a great one for crepes.
This recipe makes 4/5 pancakes.
I like to use a 3:2:1 ratio
300ml milk
2 eggs
100g flour (plain)
Sieve the flour into the bowl.
Whisk the eggs and milk together and whisk into the flour.
Allow to chill in the fridge for 30mins ( if you have not got the time or patience for that – it will be grand i promise)

Some of my top tips include:
Fry with a tiny bit of oil and butter (real butter – not the spreadable stuff)
Fry on a moderate heat – no need for the hottest and this way you have more control, and allow the pan to cool for 1 min in between each pancake.
Oh and give the pan a little wipe out with some kitchen paper between each one.
If making a big batch, turn the oven on really low and layer then up on a plate with a little greaseproof paper between each to stop them sticking together.

Some serving suggestions – lemon & sugar, nutella, maple syrup and cream or for a delicious savoury option – fried egg, crispy parma ham & vintage cheddar.
Yum Yum
