During long vacations and on weekends, your kids or, in my case, little cousins, are often at home and you wonder what to do to amuse them. Our Breadonbutter guest chef, Jean Fares, always seems to make his magical sentence work – “how about we make some crepes?”. It works like a charm and it’s not a lot of effort, doesn’t mess up the kitchen and leaves them happy for at least 45 minutes, not counting the crepe flips in the air.
What you’ll need is:
– 250 grams of Flour
– 3 Eggs
– 0.5 liters of Milk
– 2 tablespoons of Sugar
– 1 tablespoon of cooking oil
– A pinch of Salt
How to make it:
– In a bowl, pour the flour and make a hole in it
– Break the eggs in the hole
– Mix while at the same time pouring the milk on top
– Add the salt, sugar and oil
– Mix well
You can either start making your crepes right away, or, if you have time, let the mix rest for a maximum of 15 minutes.
That day, we only made Nutella crepes (adding a bit of cognac for grown-ups). But you can also make plain ones and let the children add whatever they want to it, ranging from sugar, to jam or even jam and yellow cheese (which I sometimes prefer to Nutella).
And you’ve got yourself a happy kid!
