Say hello to our friend Crepes, Pancakes posh cousin from the Hamptons.
Srsly tho, what are Crepes and why the hell would you choose them over pancakes?
Well, here’s a few reasons:
What are Crepes tho?
Crepes began to be especially popular throughout France but now is a common delicacy in most European countries. The common ingredients include flour, eggs, milk, butter, and a pinch of salt and usually made up of two types: sweet crêpes (crepes sucrées) made with wheat flour and slightly sweetened; and savoury galettes (crepes salées) made with buckwheat flour and unsweetened.
Nowadays however, you’ll find the typical crepes made in a whole variety of ways such as the one we will show you towards the end of this blogpost: using protein powders.
Top tip: For the best (real) crepes try Creps Barcelona. Both their savoury and sweet once’s are to die for! And, they can make any of them gluten-free for you upon request.
But, ain’t they just Pancakes?
Typically, pancakes tend to have a raising agent which makes them fluffy and thick while crepes dont making them thin and flat.
Crepes also tend to be larger in diamater and are used to roll or fold food in.
Why choose em?
Well, because you like them duh! But also, if you fancy a lighter version of pancakes or something a little different.
1. Put all dry ingredients into a bowl and combine with a whisk.
2. Fold in the wet ingredients.
3. Set aside for 5-10mins.
4. Heat a non-stick pan on medium heat with some low-cal oil spray. DO NOT be tempted to blast it on high to heat up the pan quicker, you want the opposite and for the pan to heat up in its own time. Once the pan feels hot, using a ladel pour a level spoon and spread to make a round shape.
5. It will take just a minute to cooke as the crepes are much thinner than a pancake. Flip over, cook on the other side and repeat until all the batter is used up.
Lather it up with your preferred toppings and bam! Crepes a la health.
