Crêpes made easy?

Crêpes. What do we know about them?

  • They are French
  • They seem complicated. Precise measurements into the correct temperature pan versus the more easy-going nature of everyone’s good friend the “Pancake”
  • The word itself seems complicated because of the little hat over the “ê”. (It’s called an “accent circonflexe”, we’ll do a French lesson another time)
  • They are thin and need to be flipped…trouble?!

Well, as always there are two sides to look at this. The good news is that I saw an episode of Giada at Home where Giada made them look pretty simple. The bad news is that I haven’t tried it yet AND maybe she makes them look easy because she’s just that good!

I figured why not give them a shot tomorrow for Father’s Day brunch. It’s the thought that counts right?

Success or failure, i’ll own up to how they do!

Giada filled her crêpes with rasberry, i’m thinking a variety of fillings to disuguise the possible incompetencies of my crêpes.

Happy early Father’s Day to all!

  1. I hope they work out for you! Often the first one is a mess, but you’ll get the hang of it. My favourite filling is lemon and sugar, rolled up.

      Thanks Mary! Yes, my goal is not to be discouraged after the first one. Judging by your delicious looking blog, you’ve made a crepe or two in your day:)

  2. As the father in the write-up, I am pleased to report that the crepes were great, the fillings delicious and all the company outstanding. Brunch was tasty and reminiscent of blintzes that my mother used to make. Thanks for the good time.
