Just a quick reminder of the guidelines with this newly revised recipe exchange:
1) Please aim for simplicity in your recipes, no matter how many ingredients they have. Simplicity was the whole appeal to me of the 5 ingredients or less. I don't want to loose that, but I think we don't have to even with recipes that have more ingredients.
2) Please number your ingredients within your post so that, at a quick glance, we all know how many ingredients we'll be working with if we make your dish.
That's it. And now for my recipe.
The recipe I'm about to share is from my Best 50 Crepe Recipes cookbook. We got this cookbook as a wedding gift, along with a VillaWare crepe maker. I love both the cookbook and the crepe maker and Oronzo loves it when I treat him to crepes! I've even made crepes at work and my co-workers fight over them! :)
I know there are quite a few ingredients (I guess I can't follow my own guidelines) but it's a simple recipe because you just dump them all in a blender and blend. Enjoy!
- 2 eggs
- 1 Tbsp melted butter
- 1 oz. melted semisweet chocolate
- 1 Tbsp cocoa
- 1 1/4 cups milk
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp chocolate extract (if you have it)
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 cup flour
- dash of salt
- dash of cinnamon
- Place ingredients in a blender or food processor and process for 20 to 30 seconds.
- Scrape down sides of container and process for a few more seconds.
- Cook crepes according to directions given by the crepe maker manufacturer.
- If you don't have a crepe maker, you can make these in an omelet pan. Check out this website for instructions on how to master the fine art of making crepes without a crepe maker.
These crepes are Heavenly when stuffed with raspberries or other fruits. I also like to top them with real whipped cream (I whip my heavy cream with clear vanilla extract, sugar, and a bit of cinnamon)! Talk about a decedent breakfast that your entire family will enjoy!
I look forward to seeing your Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe! Don't forget to link your specific recipe post link on Mr. Linky so I can see what's cooking at your house!
Oh, and be sure to put the title of your recipe in parenthesis! It makes it so much quicker for me to go back and search for recipes as I build my weekly menu.
