A Morning of Crepes


There's nothing better than an early morning breakfast with Aunt Lana (my sister). She makes the best crepes I've ever had. This has been going on since she was at least nine years old. It's her thing.

This time around, Jude invited himself to help make them. And as these images show, he had a blast.


The art of crepe (and pancake) making is really about feeling. There is no definite recipe for us (I'm the pancake maker), we just go until we get the right consistency.

Ingredients:

• 2 eggs
• Milk (pour a little at a time and mix, you've got enough milk when the eggs change to a pale yellow color)
• Flour (scoop half a cup at a time, when it starts to become a batter, you've got enough)
• About 1 Tbsp melted butter (I'm not sure why we do this, but it seems to be a good thing).

Directions:

• Beat eggs. Add milk and keep beating.
• Add flour little by little and beat until desired consistency is reached.
• Melt butter in frying pan, pour into batter.
• Keep a steady medium-high heat while making crepes. Pour batter into frying pan, and wave pan in a circular motion (off of stove) to thin out. Sorry I did not get any pictures of this!


 ^^ This was the beginning. We brought a chair for me to stand on while I photographed, he wanted a part of it and before we knew it, his little fingers grabbed that whisk ^^


^^ He is wherever there are strawberries, or as he calls them "beerees" ^^


Eat these crepes with virtually anything from berries and cream (or sour cream!) to chicken and pesto for a savory version. I like to butter the heck out of them and drizzle some maple syrup on top.


Bon Appetit!
