Kids Favorite Home Made French Crepe Recipe

Kids Favorite Home Made French Crepe Recipe

Our journey to finding and making this homemade french crepe recipe began 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 such as the one used at the mall in order to make this for dinner. Just finding a homemade 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, homemade 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 homemade 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 flour
