Using just five ingredients and 30 minutes of your time, these crêpes can be served sweet or savoury – we love them topped with fresh fruit and whipped cream
- Serves: 12 persons
- 300ml semi-skimmed milk
- 100g plain flour
- 1tbsp (optional) caster sugar
- 1tbsp melted butter, plus more for frying
- fresh fruit, hot chocolate sauce and whipped cream, to serve (optional)
Step 1Put the milk, flour, sugar, eggs, melted butter and a pinch of salt in a blender and whizz until smooth, and the consistency of single cream. Rest for 10-15 minutes.
Step 2Heat a small teaspoon of butter in a non-stick crêpe pan, or a 15cm frying pan, and brush around the base of the pan with a silicone spatula or piece of kitchen paper. Add a small ladle of the mixture to the pan, and tilt the pan to thinly coat the base. Cook for 1-2 minutes until the edges release from the side of the pan, then flip and cook for a further 1 minute until lightly brown. Repeat until you use all the batter, you should have about 12 crepes. Keep warm in a low oven while you cook the rest.
Step 3To serve, add the fruit, chocolate sauce and whipped cream, or serve with a squeeze of lemon juice and a sprinkling of sugar.
