Breakfast Crepes Your Way

During the week, breakfast usually isn’t too exciting at our house, so we try to make up for that on the weekends when we have a bit more time. Tyler enjoys making recipes from the Kids Cookbook he received for Christmas and asked about making crepes for dinner one night. We didn’t have all of the ingredients, so we promised him we would do them after going grocery shopping.

Well, the boys devoured their crepes the first day and asked for more, so we made them again the following day. We’ve made these quite a few times now, and all enjoy them. Although, I try not to make them too often since there is a decent amount of sugar in them and Tyler and Ryan are already hyper enough as it is!

Breakfast crepes are great when cooking for guests as well because everyone can make their own crepes and fill them with whatever they want. There are so many combinations with the few toppings we used, and I know there are other spreads and foods that could be used as well.

The breakfast crepes were made the first time when it was my day to sleep in, so this is a recipe that Justin made with the boys originally. And every time since then, he tends to take the lead on this recipe with the boys right by his side.

Start by making the batter for the crepes. It’s similar to pancake batter, but it is thinner and made in the blender. I’m sure you could use a stand mixer or electric hand mixer, but the texture would probably be different since it would add a lot more air to the batter.

In a blender combine the flour, eggs, milk, melted butter, sugar, and salt. Blend it for about 30 seconds to one minute, until the batter is smooth. You don’t want any lumps in the batter.

Over medium heat, melt a bit of butter in a small frying pan to coat the bottom. Once the butter is melted, pour about 1/4 cup of the crepe batter into the pan, tilting the pan to make sure it coats the bottom. The crepe should be thin. Cook for about one minute, then use a spatula to gently lift the crepe and flip it over to cook the other side.

After the bottom has cooked as well, transfer the crepe to a plate and continue with the remaining batter. Crepes are best served warm, so either start serving as they finish, or cover to keep warm until you are ready to eat.

To serve: cover each crepe with a thin layer of your choice of spreads, going almost to the edges. Add any other toppings you would like, and carefully fold the crepe in half, then half again, and enjoy!
