I’ve been experimenting with making crepes for the past couple months and I now have created my favourite version.
Hope you enjoy them too.
Here’s what you need:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
1 1/2 cups 2% milk
4 large eggs
1 tablespoon of avocado oil (OR 3 table spoons of melted butter)
Blend everything in a blender (if you are using melted butter, add the eggs last or the eggs will begin to cook with the hot butter).
Purée until smooth, bubbles should form at the top. Shouldn’t take more than a minute. Let the batter sit for a bit, just to get rid of the bubbles (15 mins)
Heat a non-stick pan on medium high. Make sure it is hot before pouring the batter. Add batter to the pan. Cover about the half the pan while pouring and pick up pan and rotate to spread the batter across the pan.
After 2-3 minutes, when the underside of the crepe is golden brown, loosen the edge with a thin spatula. Then carefully flip it over (you can use your fingers). Cook one more minute.
Slide you’re crepe off the pan and add your toppings while warm. You can also pile them up with parchment paper in between and freeze them for a nice treat later.
You can also save the batter in the fridge for up to one day. in an airtight container.
I got my hands on a Canon Program ae-1 35mm camera. I’ve been playing around with it for about a month now and just got my first roll developed! I’ve been into digital photography for 10+ years now, and specialize in travel photography. I am trying to take more photos while home, as I find […]
A lot has happened since my last post. While studying in England, I got pretty busy. I wasn’t really able to write much on this blog. Most of my time writing was focused on revisions of a short film I wrote, The Resurrectionist, inspired by a documentary I produced several years ago, The London Burkers.
The rest of my semester abroad was incredible. I was able to get up to Scotland a couple times and saw so many shows. London (and the UK) is probably my favorite place on Earth.
After my trip, I went back to Capilano University and finished my degree! A Bachelors of Motion Picture Arts. Guys! I’m a graduate! Finally! (It only took 9 years after High School) Goes to show its not a race, as long as you find what you love, it’s all worth it.
In my last year, I produced a couple of commercials and helped create a branded media business.
Now it’s the summer. I have found myself working on a tv show in town, however, not very regularly. Still searching for the next big adventure.
I am also currently working on two stories (one a script, one a novel), so please expect some posts about my research and writing about these.
It’s my goal to write much more often both within this blog and towards these stories.
