Crepes

A few weeks ago, my mom brought me a big box of apricots, so I spent the next few days making three batches of apricot jam! I love apricot jam, it always reminds me of my childhood since my mom would always make some every summer with the fruit on their big apricot tree.With all that yummy jam, I had to make some crepes for lunch because fresh jam and crepes are about as perfect of a match as you could hope to find! I've seen a few crepes recipes out there that are long and complicated, but these ones are easy to make, only have a few ingredients, are super yummy, and very kid-friendly!

Crepes
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1 cup flour

Whisk the milk and flour, then gradually mix in the flour. Stir until smooth.

Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat for a few minutes until its nice and hot. Spray a little non-stick spray to coat the surface. Pour about 1/4 cup of the batter in the middle of the skillet, then move the skillet around around to spread the batter around the base of the skillet. Cook for a minute or two, or until you see small bubbles covering most of the crepe. It should look very lightly browned, but not dark. Flip and cook on the other side another minute or until you can shake the skillet gently and it no longer sticks. Turn onto a plate and make your next one.

Then take your finished crepe and spread a spoonful of jam around the crepe, then roll up and serve. You can also fill it with fresh fruit and whipped cream, pudding, Nutella and bananas, or whatever your heart desires!

Enjoy!

  1. I love making crepes; it reminds me of my childhood. It is hard to write a recipe down from my childhood because we never used measuring cups; our eyes were the judge. :D
