For as long as I can remember I have wanted to know how to make crepes. My kids as well have asked for me to make them for breakfast. I really don’t know why it took me this long to try. I’m thinking it could have something to do with the fact that I knew once we made them we would want them every chance we could get.
Crepes are something you only order in restaurants right? That is what I used to think but the answer to that is no, not at all. Crepes turned out to be very easy to make. I really don’t know how healthy or unhealthy they are, I just know that I have a very hard time just stopping at one.
With my kids getting older it is getting harder to impress them on a Holiday and I though that this would be a great opportunity to start a tradition of having crepes. It has been very successful and trying to stick to having them on a Holiday morning for breakfast has helped me not gain 10 pounds eating them.
So back to how to make them. My family gave me a cordless crepe maker for Christmas which makes it even easier and I love how quick you can make them. If you don’t own a maker you can make them in a smaller frying pan. I haven’t done it this way but you would definitely have to use a non stick pan. Butter the pan real well and have a spatula to help turn the crepe. They cook very quickly.
The recipe I used was in the instruction book that came with the maker. The only thing I did change was I added a tsp of vanilla.
