I decided to do this recipe because the 2nd February is time for a french tradition: the "Chandeleur". This tradition is about crepe. To respect it, you need to flip the crepes in the air with the right hand while you are holding a coin in the left hand, in order to have prosperity throughout the year.
However, if you don't believe it, just try to flip the crepes in the air, it's fun !
- 3.5 oz of cornstarch (100g)
- 5.5 oz of milk (150g)
- 2 eggs
- 1 oz sugar (30g)
- 0.5 oz of melted butter (15g)
- homemade jam (if you have some, you can also get one you like)
- extra 0.5 oz butter for your crepe pan (15g)
Step 1: Prepare the Dough
Put the cornstarch, the sugar, the milk in a bowl and mix it.
Add the eggs, the milk and the melted better. Mix it with a cooking whisk.
Pay attention to the bottom, you need to mix all the cornstarch. Mix it until there is no more lumps.
Then peel and slide a apple, you have to do very thin piece of the apple (like on the picture, this give an extra flavour when you eat it, and it is absolutely so good !
Step 2: Materials
By now, you will need your crepe pan, a ladle and a thin spatula.
Step 3: Prepare Your Crepe Pan
Put your extra butter on you crepe pan, and try to put it everywhere.
Step 4: Cook
Cook all the crepe you can do. Try to make them thin, it will be easier after.
You can try the first one. I always say it's the one of the chef (just a way to eat one ^^)
Don't forget to flip the crepes in the air with the right hand while you hold a coin in your left hand.
Step 5: Slide and Choose the Jam You Will Use
Slide a crepe to make a rectangle (here you can also eat what you have cut, you will see, your crepe will be delicious).
Then choose the jam you will use. I will use a blackcurrant-raspberries jam which I have made last summer. And put some !
Step 6: Roll Your Crepe
Just roll it, now you can also think how you gonna present it.
Slide it into little pieces.
Step 7: Bon Appétit !
You succeed !
It's time to taste now !
