New Year’s Crepes

01 January 2013

Happy 2013! This is one of our family’s favorite recipes from my Dad.


Every New Year, we have gotten together with friends and family and my Dad has made stacks and stacks of these. A very delicious tradition and now we are carrying it on with our own family.  Printable version here.

1 ½ cups milk
2 Tbs. butter, melted
3 eggs
2 Tbs. sugar
1 ¼ cups flour
pinch of salt

1. Place all ingredients in blender or mixer and beat well. Let batter stand
one hour for more perfect crepes.

2. Have pan heated enough so that water will bead on it. Take the pan off the
heat to add the batter directly into the center of the pan and quickly roll
the pan about so that the batter covers the bottom. If it is too thick, add 1
tsp water.

3. Enjoy with any filling! Some of our favorite toppings: strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, peaches, bananas(any fruit!), nutella, brown sugar, peanut butter, butter, powdered sugar, lemon, buttermilk syrup (see recipe here), mini chocolate chips, nuts, the possibilities and combinations are endless, so you really can’t just have one. Roll them up, fold them in half, eat them daintily with a fork, whatever floats your boat.

    We do room temperature, but sometimes we make it the night before and keep it in the fridge, and then take it out about half an hour or so before cooking. Good luck! :)

  2. Sound - and look - wonderful! Had one question, in regard to letting the batter rest for an you do so at room temperature or refrigerated? Thanks!

    I love crepes!  I have found it was more a northern thing.  I love them filled with any kind of fruit and sprinkled with powdered sugar.

  4. We are having the same thing for dinner!  Imagine that!:)  Wish we were eating them all together--oh and didn't you forget something?  RABBIT!:)
    Love you!

  5. My mom made these several times as have I.  We'd take a crepe, spread some honey mustard on it and then put a generous amount of ground ham in the center.  We'd roll it up like a egg roll, put it in an egg wash and then bread crumbs.  (Probably could use Panko, too.)  We'd then brown them in some oil til golden.  Serve with homemade applesauce and veggies or salad...mmmm, yummy meal.  (I would imagine you could do quite a few of the steps ahead of time.  And I bet you could make ahead and take on a picnic or maybe pack in a lunch box.)

    All my best to you and yours for a happy and healthy New Year!
