How to Make Dessert Crepes. Dessert crepes,
a sweet French tradition, are delicate pancakes that can be enjoyed with many types of fillings
after a meal – or even for breakfast. You will need 2 c. all-purpose flour 6 tbsp. butter,
melted, plus extra butter for cooking 1/4 c. granulated sugar 3 large eggs 1/4 tsp.
salt 1 1/2 c. whole milk 1/2 c. powdered sugar A blender An 8-inch nonstick skillet A heat-proof
spatula and fruit, jam, melted chocolate, or other filling of your choice. Step 1. Blend
the flour, butter, sugar, eggs, and salt in the blender until smooth. Slowly add ¼ cup
of milk at a time until the batter turns into a liquid. You’ve added enough milk when the
batter has a pourable consistency. Step 2. Leave the batter to set in the blender for
20 to 30 minutes. This allows the air bubbles to settle, which helps create a lighter, fluffier
crepe! Step 3. Drop 1 to 2 teaspoons of butter into the skillet and turn the heat up to a
medium-high setting until the butter has melted. Lower the heat to a low-medium setting to
prepare for the crepe making. Step 4. Add 3 tablespoons of batter to the hot pan and
lift the pan slightly off the heat to swirl the batter evenly around the bottom of the
pan. Set back on the stove and let it cook for 45 to 60 seconds until it is very lightly
browned. Step 5. Gently slide the spatula under the crepe and turn it over in the pan.
Let it cook for 45 to 60 seconds before transferring it to a serving plate. Store the crepes in
a warm oven as you make them so they stay soft and moist. Step 6. Continue to butter,
pour, cook, and flip until all of the crepe batter is used up. Sprinkle powdered sugar
over the warm crepes before filling them with fruit, jam, or melted chocolate, or enjoy
them as is! Did you know Traditional French crepes were called galettes and were made
with buckwheat.
