Making crepes has always been very easy for me; just mix up the ingredients without any accurate measurements and they always turn out perfect. But the last time I decided to make crepes, I had to make a few trials before I could make them nice and thin. Even my batter was too thick and that’s all because I kind of abandoned crepes ever since I started making pancakes.
Well now I have to make it a must to make crepes every now and then. These are too good to be forgotten! I got the idea of using apple or pear in crepes while watching one of the cooking shows on TV and obviously cinnamon adds a unique touch to it. 🙂 If you don’t like cinnamon, you can substitute it with nutmeg or just leave it out.
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 3 tbs sugar
- 1 1/4 cup milk
- 1 tbs melted butter
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 small apple or pear
- Adjust the sugar according to your taste.
- The recipe above is eggless but you may add in 1 beaten egg to the batter.
- If you find the batter too thick for crepes then just add in some more milk.
- I know the title say cinnamon crepes, but if you don’t like cinnamon you can leave it out or substitute with nutmeg. 🙂
- The apple or pear can be grated with or without the skin, that’s up to you. I usually don’t find it necessary to remove the skin. Also you may not add the whole fruit depending on its size.
- In a medium bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and cinnamon powder.
- Make a well in the centre and pour in the milk while stirring with a whisk to avoid making lumps. If you want you may add in 1 beaten egg along with the milk.
- Another way of preparing this is to put the ingredients in your blender and blend until smooth.
- Add in the melted butter, vanilla extract and finely grated apple or pear and mix well. You may add some milk if you find the batter too thick.
- Warm a skillet over medium heat. Coat it with a small amount of vegetable oil and pour in about 3 – 4 tbs of crepe batter. Swirl the skillet and spread out the batter thinly. Cook on both sides until golden brown. Repeat with the remaining batter.
Serve warm along with a hot cup of tea or coffee! 🙂
