Old Fashion Crêpes, PANNEKOEKEN!

Tomorrow morning we leave quite early to have a very grown up adventure… We’re going to DISNEYLAND Paris with mom, sis and Antoine. And for the occasion, also to have something to nibble in the car, I made us crêpes.

They are very known in France but here in Belgium they’re also celebrated for their unique flavor and texture. We even have pannekoekenfeesten where we sell crêpes to raise money or just have a party. My mom made these quite often when I was a kid and loved them with plain white sugar, MIUM!

Hope you’ll try these out and you can make more to keep in the freezer for later.

Your turn; The Recipe

This amount of batter makes 20 crêpes in a 15cm wide pan.

Ingredients

  • 200 gr plain flour
  • 50 dl milk
  • 30 gr caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 25 gr melted butter
  • 5 gr baking powder
  • 10 gr vanilla sugar

The Process

In a mixing bowl, crack in the eggs and mix them with the sugar until no sugar lumps are left. Stir in the milk and the butter until you have a smooth mixture.

Sieve in the flour and the baking powder gradually by mixing it in. Once you have a smooth and no lump consistency leave the batter to rest for at least 5 min and up to 10.

Heat up your pan to a medium high heat and melt butter, add about 80 cl of batter and spin the pan so that it covers the entire surface. Once the top of your batter is dry you can flip it using a spatula. When the other side becomes golden brown you can take it out of the pan.

Repeat this until all your batter is cooked.

Serving Tip: If you want to make this more of an adult dessert. Take one crêpe and fill it with white sugar on one half and fold it into a triangle. Then put back into the pan, when you have obtained some heat, add a shot of amaretto and turn the crêpe until the amaretto has been absorbed into the crêpe. Repeat as much as necessary and ENJOY!

Bonne Appétit!
