On Sunday mornings I usually spend time sewing with a friend. It is a special time chatting and catching up from the week. This Sunday however, she was unable to visit so I spent some time quietly cutting out denim circles for the quilt I'm working on. The pile is steadily growing. Soon I will start sewing them together. I'm excited to get the quilt to that point.
When everyone had awoke I decided it was a good morning to make a big batch of crepes. The children have friends over this weekend so I had lots of hungry tummy's to feed.
We all enjoyed Peach Crepes with a dollop of whip cream on the top. They were delicious! Don't be intimidated to give them a try, crepes are every bit as easy to make as pancakes. The batter is much thinner and pours easily. I prefer mine in butter which when left a light bit longer in the pan has a nice buttery crunch on the edges. They are just excellent! I have included the recipe below for you to try. You can use any filling you choose inside. I usually use either peaches or bananas. Whichever I have on hand works just fine. I hope you too are enjoying a nice relaxing Sunday!
1 c. all purpose flour
1/2 c. confectioner's sugar
3 tsp. vanilla
pinch of salt
Beat eggs together in a bowl using a whisk, add milk and whisk together. Add flour slowly working in with whisk, then add sugar. After mixed together add vanilla and salt. Batter will be thin and runny. In a hot skillet melt several pats of butter. Pour batter into skillet. Cook for 2-3 min on each side until set. I choose to slightly brown mine for a nice buttery crunch.
Melt 3-4TBSP of butter in a pan, cut up banana slices (or peaches) into the pan and allow to saute' for a while. Add in 1/3 c. brown sugar. This will heat up together and start to caramelize. Lower heat to warm and use a small spoon full of topping in a line in the middle of the crepe. Fold crepe over filling and roll up. Place seam side down on serving plate and put a dollop of whip cream on the top. Yields 5-6 servings. Enjoy!
