Trio de crêpes


On the 2nd of February I was lucky to be with my family and friends to celebrate the french festivity of Chandeleur: the festival of lights also known nowadays as crêpe day! On this day you are supposed to make traditional french crêpes and when making them you should hold a coin in 1 hand and flip the crêpe with the other hand for good luck.

For this occasion we were invited to celebrate Chandeleur at our friends house so I made a basic french batter recipe and poured it in jars which made a perfect gift to bring along.

Recipe:
- 4 eggs
- 250g Flour
- 50ml milk
- 50g butter
- A pinch of salt
- For a sweet batter add a couple of tablespoons of sugar, vanilla beans, a dash of Cointreau or Rum and a drop of fleur d'oranger essence

- Combine the eggs, flour and gradually add the milk (do not mix the eggs and flour without adding milk or you will have a very thick batter almost impossible to work with!)

-melt the butter in a small pan and add to the mixture

-add aromas to taste









Ham, Cheese & Mushroom crêpe:


Cream cheese, salmon eggs & chives crêpe:


Banana, Nutella & Chantilly crêpe:

  2. We celebrated Pancake Tuesday in England on 12th February. I love making pancakes and eating them with lemon and sugar. Your variations look delicious especially the last one and I'm a fan of Chantilly cream too. Gorgeous photos too!
