development – cassi’s crêpes

 

Its funny how many wedding gifts you actually remember and think about every time they are used…or is it just me?  🙂  Cassi gave us a handmade recipe book filled with her favorites across the board.  What an incredible gift!  I have loved it! One of the first we tried were the crêpes.  I muffled them a bit trying to do oats instead of white flour…but it was surprisingly good.

Recently, we tried them with spelt flour…they are now on our regular breakfast menu: 2 or three times a week.  🙂

cassi’s crêpes

1 1/2 c milk {we use almond milk}
1 c flour {we use 1 c spelt berries and grind them in the blendtec before add the rest of the ingredients}
2 eggs
1/4 c butter
1/4 tsp salt

We mix all the above ingredients in the blender, choose a cast iron pan the prefered size of the crepes.  A tab of butter added and using medium heat, pour enough to cover 2/3 of the pan from the middle.  Grab the handle and tilt the pan to let batter cover rest of the bottom of the pan.  Cook on each side 1-2 minutes.  {the smaller the crêpe, the easier to flip}

We eat them right away will all sorts of fresh fruit, seeds, nuts, jams, jellies and pure maple syrup.  Guess what we’ll be eating tomorrow morning?  🙂

  1. Probably my fave and most indulgent breakfast is german pancakes. They are FAR from healthy but oh so good. Mix 6 eggs, 1 cup milk, 1 cup flour. Melt half a stick of butter and pour that in a baking pan. Then pour the batter in and cook at 400 for 20ish minutes, until it puffs up and is light golden brown. OH man, these are sinfully delicious.

  2. I saw your post on Mormon Mommy Blogs and enjoyed your beautiful temple painting so I came here. What a wonderful blog! So much goodness (food, kids, art and more) in one place.
