We make crêpes all year round. They are fancy enough for a celebration yet simple enough for everyday. So, when I thought about making a video for an easy Mothers' Day dish on our Culinary Cam YouTube channel, I landed on crêpes. You can watch it there...or here.
Ingredients makes approximately one dozen
- 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 eggs
- 2 cups organic whole milk
- dash of ground cardamom
- butter, for cooking
- For serving: jam, unsweetened whipped cream, lemon wedges, Nutella, cheese (for any savory lovers!), and - for this post, I used - a trio of citrus curds
Whisk all of the ingredients together until lump-free. Let sit for at least 30 minutes. Heat a large flat-bottom pan and rub the bottom with butter. Pour the batter into the pan and quickly make a tilting motion to distribute the batter all over the pan. The goal: have as thin a batter layer as possible.
Cook until the crêpe is a bit stiff and flip over, cooking for another minute The pancake should be lightly browned on both sides. Repeat till all the batter is used; I made 12 crêpes with the quantities listed above.
Let everyone assemble their own crêpes.
