I love, love, love crepes and pancakes.
Whenever I'm procrastinating from uni work, or cleaning, or anything else I don't want to do, I make these for breakfast.

This is a really basic recipe that I use as a base for pancakes and crepes.

Basic Batter
Makes about 6 pancakes or 8 crepes

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
How easy is that? Beat the egg and flour together with a whisk until combined, and add milk. For crepes, water the mixture down with 1/2 cup of water. Easy peasy! Who needs those shaker bottles?
Heat a small frying pan (or whatever size you like - I like my small pan because I like little crepes) and then add a small smear of butter. When the butter starts sizzling pour 1/4 cup of the mixture in and fry until all the bubbles pop, and then flip the pancake/crepe over. Repeat with the remaining batter.

Fill your crepes with whatever you like. This time, I did one with mango and strawberries with icing sugar, one with strawberries, blueberries and peanut butter and honey, and one with Nutella and whipped cream. 

 I topped them with some blueberries, dusted with icing sugar, and then drizzled maple syrup on the top. A quick, easy and delicious breakfast - perfect for procrastination ;)
