sunday morning brunch

sunday morning brunch

*CREPES RECIPE*
1 1/2 c. flour
1 T. sugar
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 c. milk
2 eggs
2 T. melted butter, unsalted
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Combine dry ingredients. Wisk in remaining until smooth. Butter a 6-8" skillet over medium heat. (Better yet, get yourself a crepe pan.)(Also you can melt the butter from the recipe plus a little more, then pour it in batter.) Tip the hot skillet, and pour 1/4 cup of batter on the top edge and quickly rotate the pan to cover. Grab a wide spatula and flip that puppy when it starts to brown. It only takes about a minute. When done, slide off the pan onto plate. No point trying to lift it again. Place a sheet of wax paper between each crepe as you cook them for easy self-service to the hungry masses!

Fill with oodles of yummy stuff! Chocolate and thinly sliced bananas with powder sugar on top, raspberries and whip cream, Canadian bacon and Havarti cheese, or Science Diet dog food and gravy, all based on our own options this morning. Although, the dogs were perfectly happy to have theirs free of any fillings.

I think the dog would rather one of the other ingredients in their crepes.

i know people who make crepes from boxes! never the same - they are always too thick. when i make them, i add extra milk (actually soy milk!) to make them nice and thin. love that! yummy!

you've reminded me of a friend who invited us over for "crepes" once, annie. he pulled out a box of bisquick, and i said "i thought we were having crepes?" he said, "we are!" we let him continue, but after they turned out pretty thick, everyone gave him a hard time for inventing pancrepes! ha!

i am thoroughly convinced that crepes can NOT be made from a box. :)
