Sweet Crepes

I'm so sad and angry today because my mum has killed my blueberry bush. She thought it was dead, and it wasn't, it's just winter!

Trees loose their leaves in winter, come on mum!

I rescued it from garbage and replanted again in a new pot... I hope it will grow again next spring!

Spring, I think I need it more than never. I always said that I like winter (and I love it) but this year, I need a little bit more of sunlight. Spending so much time at home is not as good as it may seem. 
I do really need a job! Come on Spain! A Physicist is waiting!

Anyway, we are here not to here me complaining but for nice sweet treats to bake, eat and enjoy.

So today would have been a very nice day to prepare something with blueberries, but I did it in the last post, and I don't want to be so blueberry-boring (but I must admit that I love blueberries)

That's why today I decided to rescue an old recipe from my Spanish blog and bring it here for you.

Here you have Sweet Crepes.

Sweet Crepes

INGREDIENTS (for 5 crepes)
· ½ cup (63g) of all purpose flour
· 1 tsp (10g) of sugar
· 1 egg
· 1 cup (240ml) of milk
· 2 tbsp (30g) of melted butter
· ¼ tsp (1g) of salt


This is one of the easiest recipes ever!

For breakfast, for dinner, or just because you want something sweet and quick!

In a bowl combine all the ingredients, all together, don't worry mixing wet separate from dry, just use a whisk to combine everything, until there are no more lumps in the batter.

Next rub some butter on a big pan, 23cm of diameter is a nice size, but you can make them smaller, but you'll have more than five.

Put some of the batter on the pan and swirl it to cover al the surface with a very thin layer, because crepes must be thin.

Place on the fire until the borders turn brown and some bubbles appear in the center, that's the moment when you should flip it over. Use your hands to flip. Just use an spatula to lift an edge of the crepe from the pan and using your fingers, flip it! It's too easy!
Then wait another minute or so, until you feel is completely done.

And that's all! Now you have to thing how to fill them.

Here you have some ideas:

· Cream cheese, slices of banana and honey
· Melted chocolate and some sliced bananas.
· Rub some butter while the crepe is warm and sprinkle some lemon zest and powder sugar.
· Nutella
· Whipped cream with peaches.
· Vanilla ice-cream and maple syrup
· Sliced apples and caramel sauce
· Lemon curd and raspberry jam
· ...

I can spend the whole day just combining flavors I love. Just combine yours and of course, enjoy.
