EASY CREPE RECIPE +FOLDING TECHNIQUE

When it comes to quick and easy breakfasts my go to is anything I can have with tea. Okay thats me downplaying my love for tea.

I can have tea with literally anything and not just at breakfast, even at lunch or dinner. Ive been saying this all my life. 

Abroad weather fits me! 

At least I can have tea at any moment without looking funny. I mean its hot here in the tropics so my friends always look at me funny when we're out and I order hot tea at a bar or restaurant when its way past breakfast time.

 

In case youre not like me and would rather have tea only at breakfast, crepes are an excellent breakfast choice and they go really well with tea. Crepes are the French version of pancakes and contain less calories than pancakes. 

Here's a crepe recipe to make your breakfast routine smoother as you can prepare the batter ahead of time.

TOTAL TIME: 10 mins

SERVING SIZE (per person): 3 crepes

 

INGREDIENT LIST 

 

  • 3 eggs
  • 1.5 Cup milk
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tbsp sugar (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tbsp melted butter 

DIRECTIONS

  • Mix all ingredients together in a blender
  • OR if mixing manually with a spatula, combine dry ingredients first and then add in wet ingredients.
  • Mix until smooth for 10-15 seconds.
  • Once batter is well combined
  • Chill for 30 minutes or chill overnight if youre mixing your batter against the next morning.
  • Spray your nonstick frying pan with a little oil just about 2 tablespoons.

PRESERVATION

Batter can keep for 1 week refrigerated. Leftover crepes can be stored in a zip lock bag in the fridge and once youre ready to have some of the leftovers you can heat in the microwave and enjoy your crepes warm.

NUTRITION INFORMATION

This recipe is low calorie, low in saturated fat, high in carbohydrate, low in sugar, low in sodium and low in cholesterol. 

Crepes are also low in protein which is why I included sausages while serving in order to get all my nutrients in. Having sausage with crepes increases feelings of satiety also. You can have yours with chicken or any protein source of your choice. 

 

FOLDING TECHNIQUE

There are different styles of folding crepes. 

You can have it in a triangular form, folded in half or rolled. 

For this recipe I used the triangular method.

 

Heres how I folded my crepes to serve.

The triangular method is pretty easy all you have to do is fold your crepe in half then fold the half in half again and voila you have your triangular folded crepes.

To serve, I stacked my crepes on top of each other.

 

Im sure you found this helpful. Dont forget to share with your friends and family. Tag a fried or two.
