Simple Crepes


Doesn't it feel great to wake up on a Friday morning knowing that you're not going into work that day! And to make the morning even sweeter is waking up and having your breakfast already prepared and served to you.
It was our 6 year anniversary yesterday from the day Andrew and I decided to date officially. Seeing as it was a work day Andrew had great plans for me this morning as we're off for Good Friday. He woke up earlier than I and surprised me with this delicious breakfast. Chocolate, strawberries, and I didn't have to cook it myself...doesn't get any better than this. The sweetheart even took pictures for me of the process in order for me to post about it. What a doll!
Happy Anniversary my love!

  • 1 cup of flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and the eggs.
  • Gradually add in the milk & water, stirring to combine.
  • Add the salt and butter, beat until smooth.
  • Heat a lightly oiled pan over medium/high heat. Pour or scoop the batter into the pan. (You can make 2 large crepes as per our picture by splitting the batter in half. Or 8 crepes by using 1/4 cup per crepe.)
  • Tilt the pan in a circular motion in order to coat the bottom of the pan evenly with the batter.
  • Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes or until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a spatula and flip to cook the other side the same way. 
  • Once it's cooked, you can add the strawberries or fruit of your choice with chocolate syrup or Nutella and warm slightly. Serve hot.
  • You can garnish with powdered sugar as our picture and you can also add any of your favorite toppings like whipped cream, ice cream, english cream, etc.
Bon Appetit!
