oh la la! the first sign of spring.  crepes and a spritz.  the spritz’s are no longer around to photograph – sorry.  they are a uphoric combo of 3/4 prosecco and 1/4 aperol.  they are ‘supposed’ so include seltzer water, but i don’t bother.

the crepes are a simple recipe from ‘The Cook’s Companion’.  cooking is simple in theory, but the first time i make them, i inevitably under cook the first one and fail to flip it without ripping.  keep the oven heated to 25o and keep the first ones warm, while cooking the remaining batter.  i sure wish we had nutella!

  • 3/4 C all purpose flour
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 1/4 C milk
  • butter for the pan
  1. mix flour and salt in a meduim bowl and create a well in the middle
  2. whisk together milk and egg in the flour well, gradually incorporating flour.  then slowly whisk in remaining milk.
  3. let batter sit in fridge for 30 min before cooking
  4. heat  in skillet to medium.  when fully heated, melt a teaspoon of butter and pour just enough batter in to coat the pan.
  5. let it cook for at least 30 seconds – till the crepe begins to bubble away from the pan and steam a little bit.
  6. flip it and cook 20-30 more seconds on the other side.
