Yay it's TGIF! The weekend is here. ;) First of all, happy March my Friends. Secondly, thanks for all of the kind get well wishes. I finally went to the walk in and they had me do a nebulizer treatment thing and gave me a prescription for an inhaler and a med for my coughing. So after 3 weeks of coughing I'm finally going to kick this thing!!
But what I really popped in to share was Annie's Ooo La La Crepes with you. And you have to say this with a French accent even as you read it in your head. That's the rules from Annie. Anyway, on national pancake day we didn't make pancakes, but we finally broke in Annie's new crepe pan and made crepes. They were really yummy! The pan worked brilliantly and I'm going to use it to make omelettes too... as it should work superbly to make them as well.
This is the pan that we have and I think I found it at Williams Sonoma. The box said it's made in Denmark. It worked beautifully.
We greased the pan with a little bit of butter. Then poured the batter slowly with one hand, while twirling the pan around with the other hand, to evenly distribute a thin layer. When it starts getting bubbly on top and browned on the bottom it's ready to flip.
I kept them warm between layers of foil as we made them.
We had ours with lemon filling and fresh berries. Some of my crew had them with syrup too. They were so tasty and had that perfect crepe texture.
And then, of course, we topped them with powdered sugar. Voila! I think next time we were talking nutella with bananas and strawberries. Yum! Here's the recipe for the batter:
1&1/2 c. flour
1 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 c. milk (we used 2%)
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp melted butter
We mixed all of this together in a bowl with my immersion blender to make sure it was a nice very smooth batter. Enjoy xoxo
