Chocolate Drizzled Crepes


I got up early this morning; early meaning 8:30, to find out that I didn’t have to work today. So instead of going back to sleep, like my usual self would in the summertime, I got up and made my family some crepes. Let’s just say my skills were a bit rusty. It took me about a good six crepes being thrown away before I ended up with six good ones.

I had to complete this post for a fellow blogger of mine, Ilan, who asked me to make crepes about two months ago. It took me awhile to get around to it with exams and cupcake orders in my way. I finally got around to it Ilan, here’s my recipe:

Chocolate Drizzled Crepes
Serves 4-5

2/3 cup all purpose flour

pinch of salt

1 egg

2 tbsp superfine sugar

1 1/2 cup milk

scant 2 tbsp unsalted butter

confectioners’ sugar for dusting

chocolate syrup for drizzling

strawberries (optional) for garnish

Sift the flour and salt into a large bowl and make a well in the center. Beat the egg, sugar and half the milk together in a separate bowl, then pour the mixture into the dry ingredients. Beat the dry ingredients into the liquid, gradually drawing them in from the side, until a batter is formed. Gradually beat in remaining milk. Pour batter into a pitcher.

Heat a 7 inch/ 18 cm nonstick skillet over medium heat and add 1 teaspoon butter. When the butter has melted, pour in enough batter to coat bottom of skillet. Swirl it around while tilting it so that you have a thin, even layer. Cook for 30 seconds and lift up the edge of the crepe to check if it is cooked. Loosen crepe with a spatula all the way around and create a P with your arm. By this I mean, go in straight and quickly lift up and come back down. Cook on the other side until golden brown.

Transfer to a plate and drizzle with chocolate syrup. Dust with powdered sugar and garnish with strawberries.
