French Friday

Every country has their own version of a 'pancake' and 'doughnut.' Crepes are like thin pancakes, very close to German pancakes, they are usually made on a very large, round griddle, but can be made any size, has long as they are thin.  They are endlessly versatile, with scrambled eggs, nutella, bananas, spinach, ham, maple syrup, gravy, or whatever else you can possibly think of.

Adapted from

  • 2 cups (250gr.) all purpose flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups (500ml) Milk
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1/2 stick (50gr) butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon rum
  • Bananas 
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • Butter to grease the pan

1. Combine the eggs, milk,salt,butter,vanilla,and rum.
2. Add the flour and mix until smooth, the batter should be very light in color.
3. Heat your pan, and grease with butter.
4 Once heated, add enough batter to thinly cover the pan.
5. Cook for one  minute, then flip, add as many chocolate chips as you would like, and thinly sliced banana.
6. Cook for another minute, then fold twice and serve.

These crepes are great for any  breakfast,brunch,lunch,dinner;With roast tomatoes, egg and cheese, peanut butter, maple syrup, rucola, serano ham and parmesean. Instead of slicing the banana you can mash them and spread an even layer on the crepe, then cover with chocolate chips, which makes a smooth chocolate filling that tastes like bananas.
