I have always been a big fan of brunch. It involves breakfast food (which I crave), a relaxed meal (perfect for a weekend day), and time with friends/family (it doesn’t get better than that).  And for me, crepes are a my go-to recipe for when I make brunch.

I must thank my good friend Kirsten for teaching me this crepe recipe. Before Kirsten, I thought crepes were a gourmet food option only bought from French restaurants and food markets. But this crepe recipe is perfection: simple ingredients, easy to make, and versatile. I decided to fill the crepes with fruit and Nutella, but the great thing about crepes is that they are an invitation to get creative! Butter, sugar, cinnamon. Fruit jam. Chicken pesto. Ham and cheese. Use your imagination! Become a culinary visionary!

Simple, Delicious Crepes

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Flour
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Pinch Salt
  • 1 1/4 Cup Milk
  • 1 Tablespoon Melted Butter
  • Dash Vanilla Extract

Directions

Melt butter in the microwave. Whip together eggs and butter, then add vanilla extract and milk. Mix dry ingredients. Slowly incorporate dry ingredients with egg mixture. Let the crepe batter sit for 5-10 minutes. Turn the stove on medium, heat a pan, and melt some butter on the pan (or I used coconut oil). Pour about 1/4 cup of the batter onto the pan and lift the pan, swirling it around so that the batter coats the entire bottom. Let the crepe cook on one side for a minute, then carefully flip and cook the other side. Set crepe on a plate and cover to keep warm. Repeat until all the batter is used. Add your favorite toppings and enjoy a wonderful brunch!
