Happy Monday and April 2nd everyone!!!
(Holy crap it's April)
So, this moring I decided to make my first attempt at crepes. Love to eat them, had never made them. So here it went.
I found some really great wheat-free and gluten-free baking and pancake mix at my local natural food store, by Pamela's Products. I had some frozen berries in the freezer and some heavy whipping cream that I needed to use.
So that would be my filling.
They were delicious and a damn good first try.
|Heavy Whipping Cream by Meadow Gold and Pamela's Baking Mix|
2 Cups Heavy Whipping Cream
1/4 -1/2 cup sugar
Beat with electric mixer until cream begins to stand on it's own. Do not over beat.
Takes about 2-3 minutes for me on high speed.
2 cups frozen mixed berries
sugar, to taste
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Combine all ingredients in a medium sauce pan and begin to cook on medium heat.
Cook for approx. 5 additional minutes, on low heat, once they have reached a slight boil.
Turn off heat and let sit until needed.
1 cup Pamela's Mix
1 egg(large) I used a duck egg, it's just what I had.
1- 1/3 cup water
1 TBSP oil
Mix all ingredients together, your batter will be very thin.
Preheat crepe pan or large round pan on medium low heat.
Pre-grease skillet before baking every crepe. Pour 1/4 cup of batter into skillet and very quickly spin pan in circular motion to even out batter into a thin, even coat. Air holes will appear, do not try and fill them in. When edges start to brown, lift edges of crepe with spatula, then flip.

Take the crepe out of the pan and place flat on a piece of wax paper. Use this as a liner between crepes when stacking. Keep crepes covered to prevent them from drying out.
Fill with whipped cream and berries, and roll. Sprinkle top with powdered sugar.
