How to Make Crepes at Home


Happy Monday! To start off our week, let me share with you something I thought I could never make at home — crepes! My nephew LOVES crepes, especially mango crepes with vanilla ice cream. When we go out, he’d always ask for crepes. It never occurred to me that crepes are so easy to make until I had leftover batter from this pancake recipe and leftover milk from the said recipe.

I used that and only greased the pan substantially to prevent the batter from sticking. A non-stick pan makes your life easier, but crepes are not impossible to make without a non-stick pan.

My nephew ate three crepes, and he was temporarily relieved from the wounds resulting from his circumcision. I was happy he loved the crepes, but sad he’s no longer a little boy. How time flies so fast!


I'd love to know what you think.
