i whipped up a batch the other night at 10:30pm!!! and what would some crepes be without some homemade vanilla whipped creme!!! ahhhhhh these are a sin....
you too can share in the ridiculous, taste bud delirium....i danced around the living room for an extra 30 minutes just to cancel out the extra calories....
The World's Best Crepe Recipe:
1 cup milk (or I make it with 2 cups milk and forget the 1/2 cup water below)
1/2 cup water
2 table spoons butter (melted)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
MIX ALL THESE TOGETHER in a bowl (of course)
then stir in
1 cup of flour
in pan or griddle...put a little (or a lot...ha ha) of butterpour batter then swirl pan so you cover then whole pan in a "paper-thin"-ish batter coating....cook until top side looks dry and bubbly..flip then fold in thirds, flop on your plate...put a little more butter, sprinkle with powder sugar....and then, if you dare...make this whipped creme...and go to flavor heaven!
World's Best Homemade Whipped Cream
(yes this is my no-so-secret whipped cream recipe)
1 small carton of heavy whipping creme (about 1 cup)
2 teaspoons vanilla
(extra tip: put bowl and whipping cream in freezer for a couple minutes before whipping it)
whip together with mixer on med-hi speed until it start to form peaks
add in slowly
2 tablespoons of powder sugar
beware, you too, may develop a crepe addiction....for those overwhelmed by the goodness....i'll be starting a support group...or, i will refuse to buy any of the ingredients so i won't be tempted to make them..
i wish i had heavy whipping cream right now.......
the dangers of watching the Food Network means you get a blog post about crepes...and I have to wipe drool off the keyboard....hungry and typing about crepes...kandee
