Crepe trio

Crepes aren't our usual Saturday or Sunday morning breakfast. Usually its french toast or pancakes. But these happen on occasion (usually when we have had breakfast for supper that week) and I love them! Fun and Classy!













Crepe Trio

Crepe Batter
1 cup flour
pinch of salt
3 eggs
1 to 1 1/3 cups milk
2 Tablespoons melted butter


Combine ingredients in blender and blend until smooth and lump free. Let sit for a few minutes. Add more milk if the batter isnt really thin. (like the consisency of light cream), This can be made ahead up to 2 1/2 hours but may need to add a little more milk before you use it.

***For dessert crepes- add 1 Tablespoon sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla.

Banana Foster filling:
recipe by: Garrett Smith

4 bananas
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar

Chop bananas into 1/2 inch slices. (if cut too thin they wil fall apart when you add them to the sugar). Melt butter in large saute pan over medium heat. add brown sugar and allow to melt. Add bananas and cook over medium hear until tender. Place arund 5 sliced bananas and top with whipping cream. Fold up and top with a dollop of whipping cream and a couple slices of bananas.

Macerated Strawberries
1 pint of strawberries
1/3-1/2 cup sugar

remove strawberry stem and slice into thin slices. Add 1/2 of sugar. Taste and then add more if you like them sweeter. Refridgerate for 30 minutes. sugar will cause strawberries to give off juice and will create a syrup mixture to go along with the strawberries. Add about 5 sliced strawberries, whip cream, and a squirt of chocolate syrup. Roll up and top with a dollop of whip cream and a swirl of chocolate syrup.
