Crêpes pour mon homme

Bonjour! Today was convocation day, so I decided to take this morning easy and hang out with my man. He had a gig last night, and I wanted to make something special to congratulate him.

I have no pictures, because I left my computer in my dorm, but I can share the recipe for....

Crepes!!!! Yumyumyum.

I have waited so long to make them because I was afraid of them. Little paper thin pancakes with the fewest ingredients.... I didn't think it could work. Lo and behold, it is one of the simplest and easiest breakfast/lunch foods I have ever made. Ever.

Here's the lowdown.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1. Mix together all the wet ingredients.

2. Add all the dry ingredients, mixing until smooth.

3. Heat a lightly oiled frying pan on medium.

4. Pour approximately 1/4 cup of batter into the frying pan, let cook until you can see the very edges turning brown.

5. Flip, cook until browned on both sides.

6. Repeat with the rest of the batter.

This will give you about 8 basic crepes. Here's the awesome thing about crepes: You do whatever you want with them! I added the sugar and vanilla to my recipe because I wanted sweeter crepes. You can leave those two out if you decide to put more savory and salty things on them instead.

I, however, had a few Fuji apples on the verge of going bad, so I made a glorious apple topping.

  • 2 apples, diced
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp sugar
Adjust as desired.

1. Heat butter in frying pan.

2. Dump everything else in, cook for about 5 minutes.

To serve the complete dish, put the apple topping in a line in the middle of the crepe with a bit of honey and butter, and roll burrito style. Serve with coffee or juice.

I literally teared up when we ate these, they were so satisfying and delicious.
