On lazy weekends,got bored with those plain corn flakes at mornings! I used to make pancakes from pancake mix and made it.My hubby and my kid loves pancakes at most of the times.I am also thinking why can't I make the homemade pancake! It is different from normal pancake! I got an idea of making crepe which is very light and thin pancake and garnish with fruits or any topping such as nutella,chocolate sauce or whipped cream or fresh fruits of your choice.It is great idea and go for it :)
A crepe is purely originated from France.It is the main ingredient as wheat flour and use any filling on the cooked crepe.It is made out from flour,eggs and milk.It can be eaten as part of breakfast or dessert if it is sweet type. If savory type,then its the lunch such as fillings of cheese or mushroom or various meat on the cooked crepe being served. You can opt for crepe type such as sweet or savory! I made sweet type of crepe as Banana Nutella Crepe.:) Go for it.
