French Crepes

As soon as i discovered that there is a malaysian girl in town and on her own, i had to invite her to visit and have lunch with us. We persuaded her to night stop and the next morning had to introduce her to our family american breakfast of crepes, sausages, scrambled eggs, maple syrup, strawberries and whipped cream. Poh Jee, hoped you have enjoyed the weekend with us. This recipe is so good and it is at the back of the crepe pan which is always there when i needed to make crepes.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup of all purpose flour
2 large eggs
1 cup of milk
1 tbsp of melted butter
1 tsp sugar
pinch of salt

Method:

Mix the flour, sugar and salt in a large bowl.

Make a 'well' in the center of the flour mixture and add eggs, melted butter and half of the milk.

With a shisk or wooden spoon, gradually stir the flour into the liquid mixture. While stirring gradually add more milk until the consistency is that of cream.

When all milk is added, beat or whisk to remove all lumps.(sieve if you must)

Pour 1/4 cup of the crepe batter into preheated pan.

Cook both sides on low heat until lightly browned.

Serves

Another awesome recipe which works better than any crepe recipe I've tried. Best thing is I do a double portion and they keep very well in the fridge for a couple of days. This way the kids can have them for after-school snacks..how decadent is that??!! Thanks!!!!

i use a crepe pan which is nonstick. i will lightly oil the first time and don't have to oil it again.

if you are not using a nonstick, then you would have to oil for every crepe you make

I have not been back to malaysia for awhile and am sorry that i have not eaten these japanese crepe. i will try and ask around and see if i can come up with a recipe. if it is like soft pancake, then you could follow this recipe http://lilyng2000.blogspot.com/2008/08/flapjacks.html. Make it thinner and smaller so that it crisps more.
