Last weekend I decided to try my hand at making crepes. I had never attempted them before so I figured I would try a (hopefully trustworthy) recipe and never mind the whole food blog thing. I try to give myself the freedom to make new dishes and explore without having the pressure to make it turn out picture perfect. I love blogging, but I love trying to make new dishes and stretch myself as a home cook/baker, and it’s not always a pretty picture. If you know what I mean.
I used a recipe from Alton Brown, the only change I made was I cut the batter amount in half. The recipe said it would yield 17-22 crepes. After cutting it in half mine only made 4. And as you can see from the picture, I don’t think they are ‘jumbo’ sized or anything.
But other than that I would have to say that this recipe was near perfect. The crepes turned out delicious (yay!) and the blender method used creates very few dishes, so clean up is a breeze. I hate doing dishes so this is a big bonus to me.
I filled mine with Nutella and raspberry jam, and I about died. Yum! But next time I may try some fresh fruit. I also would really like to try a savory version sometime, just to see how that whole thing is. (Has anyone out there tried savory crepes?)
That made no sense.
