French Crepes

french crepes

There are two very similar crepes recipes in  my Grandad's cookbook - French and Turkish. The difference is that the French recipe has some white wine in it, so that's why I decided to try that :) But I used the walnuts from the Turkish recipe, so it's one sweet combination. Crepes, and cream with taste of wine, vanilla and rum. Perfect!!!

For the crepes:

  • 280 grams (1 1/4 cup) flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 500 ml  ( 2 1/2 cups) milk
  • some salt
For the cream
  • 8 eggs
  • 150 grams  (1/2 cup) sugar
  • 1 glass of white wine
  • some rum
  • some vanilla extract

You make the crepes the usual way. Beat the eggs well and add the flour milk and salt. The batter shouldn't be too thick. You can add some extra milk or water.
Fry the crepes in a frying pan, on both sides. Grease the pan if it is needed.

For the cream, first beat the eggs with the sugar well until the color is light yellow, and then add the rum, wine
and vanilla extract.

Grease the baking pan with some butter and place one crepe. Put some brown sugar and some walnuts (this is from the Turkish recipe). Repeat it with three more crepes.
Then pour one third of the cream. Repeat the whole procedure three times so you finish with the cream on top.

Bake at 200 degrees (400F) for about 20 minutes, or until it's golden brown on top.

Top it with whatever you like. I used some chocolate and walnuts.
And have a glass of white wine of course!

Bon appetit!
