Lemon Crepes

Tuesday, 17 February 2015

It's Pancake day today and with that in mind I can't not post a recipe to have on this day. Last year was the first year I ever heard of pancake day. I know what you're thinking why have I not heard about this amazing, most perfect day in the past beats me. 'Never will I miss this day again' that's what I tell myself now. Lol. Even though almost ever Saturday I have some sort of pancake concoction. As you can tell I LOVE pancakes. I'm in love with the pancake. I got it for the low, low.  Ok I'll stop now!

Measure, mix, pour, flip thats all it takes to make delicious crepes. Crepes are thin pancakes originated in northwest France. They can be served with endless combinations of toppings, Nutella with strawberries, lemon with sugar and many more. Beautiful on outside and delightful to eat. 


 Pancake mixture:

1 cup plain flour, sifted
Pinch of salt
2 eggs
13 tbsp + 1/2 tbsp milk mixed with 1/3 cup water
1/4 cup butter


Lemon juice
Lemon wedges
Icing sugar (optional)


1. In a large bowl sift the flour and salt. Next make a well in the centre of the flour and break the eggs into it. Then start whisking the eggs with the flour, incorporating any flour from around the side of the bowl.

2. Once the flour and egg is mixed together gradually add small quantities of the milk and water mixture while whisking. Lumps will slowly disappear as you mix.

3.  the batter is smooth melt 1/4 butter in a pan. Add 2 tbsp of the butter in the batter and the rest in a small bowl to use it for the pan.

4. Before making each pancake add a bit of butter in the pan. Turn the pan to the highest heat, then turn down to medium heat and add small amount of batter to thinly coat the pan. Tilt the pan in a circular motion to cover the surface evenly.

5. Cook the crepe for about half a minute or until it's golden brown. Then flip the crepe over with a flipper to cook the other side.

6. To serve, squeeze lemon juice and sprinkle sugar on top. Fold in half, then in half again to create triangles. You can also add some icing sugar on top and some lemon slices on the side.
