Our journey to finding and making this home made french crepe recipe began on one lovely afternoon, when my six-year-old son, Yishai, came up to me and asked: Can you please make crepe’s for dinner tonight? The ones that we buy at the mall!
I replied to Yishai that we need a special crepe pan like they use at the mall in order to make this for dinner. Just finding a home made french crepe recipe doesn’t help, if we don’t have the right pan. He was so disappointed, and responded: you can make it at home! Little did I know, you do not need anything special.
Since I am up for a challenge, I decided: you know what, let’s try and see what comes out of it! To say that Yishai was ecstatic would be an understatement.
I started out my research by opening up Google and finding a recipe that does not involve some kind of fancy crepe machine. I was on a mission to find an easy, home made french crepe recipe.
Once I found a simple recipe, I got to work. I made some changes to the original recipe… and our final result was YUMMY.
About once a week I take a detour from our regular menu which usually includes Pizza or Calzones, a Barbecue with my home made buns, Pasta…You get the idea… And let the children choose a “sweet tooth” dinner. The sweet tooth menu consists of the following options: Pancakes, Waffles… and now their FAVORITE french crepes. It’s been the on demand sweet tooth dinner for the last three weeks.
1 1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tablespoon oil
2 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Lets get started:
Add to your mixer, or bowl:
Blend the flour and Sugar. Add milk, eggs, water, vanilla extract and oil.
Mix all ingredients until smooth.
Once you have your crepe batter ready, spray some pam or pour a but of oil into your pan.
pour about 1/3 of a cup into the pan, and use a spatula to spread it out, and into a circle shape:
Continue Spreading out the crepe batter evenly, until it’s dry:
Once the french crepe is dry, flip it!
Leave it on the flipped side for about 20 seconds and put on a dish.
Now that your HOME MADE french crepe is ready, and you know that you don’t need a french crepe pan to make this yummy kids dinner, you’re almost ready for your kids to gobble up your new-found recipe!
Fold the ready made crepe in half:
My kids go to crepe favorite is Nutella spread. Go ahead and spread on whichever spread your kids like.
….One more step! Fold in half:
Enjoy your home made french crepe recipe, no special pan or instruments needed!
Add cucumbers and carrots, or any other vegetable to make this sweet tooth meal a tad bit healthy!
