Crepes/Pancakes - Sweet/Savoury - Both



Make a batter suitable for a thin crepe...below is my guide  and what I did for this batch...prepared ahead of time and reheated through when filled for tonight's tea.

  • 6tbs plain flour, 1 egg and the liquid portion is natural yoghurt, a dash of milk and water made up to 300ml...
  • I use a Bessemer pancake pan and bowl system but you can improvise if you aren't lucky enough to own these.Lime juice, sugar and cream... sweet crepe... what can I say other than today's lunch... yum!

  • Tea tonight are the same crepe served and presented in a square parcel with a mixture of caramelised onions & figs, pumpkin, mushroom,spinach and feta... topped with dressed salad leaves, avocado and icing sugar toasted heavenly almonds .
Pancakes are eaten today, Shrove Tuesday, the day before Lent commences. Pancakes are made from staples that would spoil if not eaten; flour, eggs, cream the consumption of which is traditionally restricted during the self-denial, associated with the 40 days of Lent which starts tomorrow.
