So my crepe obsession continues and I’ve even started to get James making them at home 😀
And this is how he does it! This mixture makes about 12, depending on the size of your pan.
- 1 cup (150g) plain flour
- 1 tsp caster sugar
- 240ml milk
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 tbsp matcha powder (don’t add if you just want normal crepes)
- pinch of salt
Once you have the mixture ready it’s time for the fun part ^_^
We use a pan like this because it’s huge.
Pour some in to the pan and drizzle it around.
Now move the pan around and cover the entire bottom of the pan in batter. If your batter is cold from being in the fridge it will be thicker and therefore take longer.
This is what you want!
Now turn the heat on medium.
And pop the pan on top. After a while you should see areas turn dark green.
Eventually the entire thing will turn dark green and start to have tiny bubbles.
While this is happening you should make whatever fillings you want on another stove burner. I like strawberry sauce. This can be made by combining some corn starch/corn flour (it’s the same thing) with some sugar, then whisking in strawberry juice. James just buys tinned strawberries and uses the juice from the can. Pop that onto the stove and bring to a boil while stirring with a whisk. This can be done with any kind of juice and amounts will depend on how much juice you have and how thick/sweet you like your sauce! I think this was about 1 can of juice with 1/4th cup corn starch and 1/4th cup sugar.
Once the whole crepe is dark, use a spatula and flip the sucker.
Cook the second side for a much shorter time as it should be thin enough that it just needs a tiny bit of heat. If you don’t add matcha powder it’s much easier to tell when to flip becuase the brown shows up much more.
Pop it on a plate!
Add your fillings 😀 I like green tea crepes with some thick cream drizzled.
Then the strawberry sauce on top.
Fold into quarters and you’ve got a delicious breakfast or dessert! YUM!
It takes around the same amount of time to make pancakes so I like to have these on the weekend, possibly in bed haha! The batter will keep for 2-3 days, or you can make all the crepes at once and freeze them for up to 3 months! If you do, just defrost for an hour at room temp.
