Breakfast or Dessert Crepes-These are delicious!
« on: January 07, 2007, 10:26:55 PM »
My own tried and true recipe of crepes. Everyone who has tried these has loved them.

Ingredients:

1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup Kahlua
3 large eggs
3 TBSP sugar
1 tsp salt
5 TBSP butter, melted
1/2 cup brandy
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
additional butter to cook with
jelly for filling

In a blender, combine milk, kahlua and eggs. Blend on medium-high speed until foamy (10-15 seconds). Turn blender to low speed and remove feed top(blender remains on the whole time). Add sugar and salt. Replace top and blend on high for 10 seconds. Turn blender back to low. Add melted butter, brandy and vanilla. Replace top and blend on high for several seconds after each addition. Turn blender off. Add flour and blend on high until just combined.

Place crepe pan or cast iron skillet over medium high heat on stove. Add a little butter. When butter smokes a little add 1/4 cup batter. As you pour, tilt the pan so batter layer spreads thin. When batter gets brown around the edges and gets bubbly, flip. If it browns to quickly, turn heat down. If it browns too slowly, turn heat up. Flip and cook on other side. Fill with jelly and roll up.  You may want to sprinkle with powdered suagr, but it's not necessary. Makes about 15 crepes. If you have leftovers, they keep well in the fridge and are even better the next day.
