What is a Crepe?
Crepes originated from France, a region called Brittany. Many people call them thin pancakes. However, they are softer and more delicate in texture. The batter is runny compared to American pancake batter. They are usually served for breakfast or as a dessert and can be sweet or savory.
Ingredients for Crepes
Traditionally they are made of flour, milk, eggs, butter and vanilla. Hm, such simple ingredients! What is the secret to the most delicate crepes that will literally melt in your mouth?
