I enjoyed eating crepes as an afternoon snack, while growing up in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast). Till this day, they are one of my favorite snacks and one of the first things I look forward to eating when I visit my siblings in France.
Don’t worry, you won’t have to travel all the way to Africa or France to enjoy this sweet treat as I am sharing my recipe with you.
2 3/4 cup of whole milk
1 3/4 cup of all purpose flour
1/2 cup + 1 TBSP of granulated sugar
3/4 TSP nutmeg
1 TSP of vanilla extract
1 1/2 TBSP of Remy Martin (or the rum of your choice)
Cooking spray (save for later)
*TBSP: tablespoon || tsp: teaspoon
Skillet, bowl, ladle, whisk, spatula, fork and a handheld mixer
In your bowl, whisk the eggs then add milk, nutmeg and gently stir with your whisk.
Add flour, stir with your whisk then mix with your handheld mixer until there are no flour lumps in the batter.
Add your sugar and stir with your ladle. Make sure you rotate your ladle in circular motion all the way at the bottle of the bowl to ensure that it is blended into the batter.
Pour vanilla extract, rum and stir with your ladle until well blended.
Heat your skillet up to medium.
Apply the cooking spray all over your skillet and pour 3/4 of the ladle filled with batter into the skillet. Rotate the skillet in circular motion to ensure that batter is spread evenly.
When the edges of your crepes start to look golden, use your fork and spatula to flip the crepe.
Let cook for about 5 to 10 seconds, then remove the crepe from the skillet.
REPEAT until you’ve cooked all your batter.
This recipe yields about 16 to 18 crepes when using a small skillet and about 10 to 12 crepes when using a large skillet.
You can do so many things with the crepes.
You will fill them with nutella or the jam of your choice (I like strawberry jam).
I love eating mine with berries (strawberries, blackberries, raspberries), sprinkle a little bit of confectioners’ sugar and maple syrup!
