Happy Morning Crepes

April 18th, 2011 · No Comments

Can I just say Nigella Lawson rocks! Over the weekend we tried several recipes from her Feast cookbook and boy did we have a good time. Saturday night we delighted a group of friends with her Chocolate Guinness Cake and Sunday morning tired and bleary eyed we staggered out to the kitchen and whipped up her recipe for “Shrove Tuesday Pancakes.” But really they are so thin I think one can interchange the word crepe here.
Ingredients:
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus more for frying
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/3 cups milk
1 egg

To Make:
Use a shallow pan, in our case we used our 8″ cast iron skillet.

Melt the butter and set aside to cool.

Put the flour, milk and egg into a blender and whiz it to smoothness. Pour into a glass measuring cup and stir in the melted butter. If you don’t have a blender you can mix the flour and milk together and then whisk in the egg.

Heat a seasoned pan and either melt some butter or use oil to grease the pan. I use a paper towel and wipe it around the pan. Pour or ladle in 2-3 tablespoons of batter and then lift up and swirl the pan around to spread the batter out to make one thin pancake. It cooks in about 1 minuet and then flip it and cook on the other side for 30 seconds or so.
Recipe makes 6 crepes.

To serve you can spread the crepes with nutella or jam and roll them up to eat.
