Recipe type: Easy Crepes with Fresh Whipped Cream
Cuisine: French
Serves: about 12 crepes
Ingredients
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
Instructions
  1. In a large mixing bowl, crack both eggs, add milk and water, and beat together until frothy. A stand mixer with the whisk attachment makes this process easy, although a hand mixer works well, too. With a little muscle, a hand whisk will get the job done.
  2. Slowly and gradually add the flour and salt, beating continuously, then slowly drizzle in the melted butter. You shouldn't get lumps with this method, but if you do, don't let it ruin your day. They will still be yummy.
  3. Let the batter sit for up to 10 minutes. It won't really thicken up, but the ingredients like to get to know each other a bit before facing the fire together. And if you know anything about the French, you should just expect a little delay in everything.
  4. Heat a non-stick pan on medium-high for 5 minutes. Be sure the pan is hot before adding batter. You should not need to add butter or oil to a non-stick pan, which can burn and make the resulting crepes uneven.
  5. Turn your burner heat down to medium.
  6. Use a ¼ or ⅓ measuring cup to scoop batter into the hot pan. With your crepe spreader, put your wrist into a circular motion and spread the crepe batter out into a wide, thin circle.
  7. Keep an eye on it! It only takes a moment or two for your crepe to brown on one side. When it does, flip it over immediately. It takes even less time to finish cooking on the second side.
  8. Finish cooking all crepes and stack them on a plate until all the crepe batter is cooked.
  9. Dress your crepes simply and lightly with your choice of toppings, and just on one half of the circle shape. Don't overfill! Fold in half, then half again to get the class French cone-shape that is often enjoyed by eating with your hands. Yes, you can also eat them with a fork, but where's the fun in that?
  10. Fresh whipped cream:
  11. This is so ridiculously easy, that if you've never made it before, you are going to thank me. Purchase a pint of Heavy Whipping Cream (also known as heavy cream or whipping cream, they are all the same) from your regular grocery store. I only use half a pint at a time to make a generous portion. Add a teaspoon of powdered sugar. In a stand mixer, use the whisk attachment on medium-high for 3-4 minutes. Stop when soft peaks form and the whipped cream feels like it takes some convincing to plop off of a spoon or spatula. This will stay firm in the refrigerator for a day, but I recommend eating it all promptly.
  12. Serving suggestions: Nutella! Butter and sugar, Fresh fruit such as banana or berries, Fruit jam known in France as confiture, Fresh whipped cream
