How to make Crepes (Easy and Quick) | Recipe










French Crepes | Recipe
1 egg,
1 tbs of unsalted butter, melted,
120ml of milk,
1 tsp of vanilla extract,
65g of sugar,
2 tbs of sugar

Whipping Cream recipe
200ml of heavy whipping cream,
3 tbs of sugar


Method
1. Whisk the egg and melted butter until well combined. Add in the milk and vanilla extract and whisk until homogenised.
2. Whisk in the flour and sugar until a thin batter forms.
3. Strain this mixture to remove lumps.
4. Heat an 8 inch non-stick pan on low to medium heat.
5. Ladle in approximately 1/2 cup of batter (or just enough to form a thin layer when the batter is evenly distributed).
6. Swirl the batter so it covers the pan in one even layer. Flip when the top appears dry.

To make the cream;
1. Whip together the heavy whipping cream and sugar until soft peaks form. For best results, the cream should be cold.
2. Place the cream in a piping bag fitted with a star tip.

Assembly
1. On a crepe, pipe a triangle from the edge to the centre once cooled. 
2. Fill with berries (choppedd strawberries and blueberries are a classic).
3. Fold from the outside in (watch video for more detail).
4. Decorate with powdered sugar and serve.

Note: You can use the same batter to make savoury crepes if you so wish- just fill with a different filling (i.e ham and cheese).
