Mom's Rolled Pancakes-Crepes
I've eaten more Crepes in some of the best resturants and hotels from coast to coast, hoping someone could match her's or at least come close. At my age it isn't going to happen.
I know she learned to make Rolled Pancakes from my grandmother. The recipe, which I just measured out tonight, is well over 100 years old.
- 1 c
- flour, unsifted
- 2 c
- whole milk, plus 3 tblsp, milk
- 1/4 tsp
- large egg
- 1/2 c
- cold butter
Then at times she would stuff them with creamed salmon or chicken for dinner. Then there were times she would stuff them with cream cheese, pudding, custard, or whipped cream with fresh or canned fruit for dessert.
My brother's favorite way of eating them is to sprinkle powdered sugar and squeeze fresh lemon juice on top.
My youngest son's way is just to eat them plain. (He's kind of a strange kid, he hates sauces and anything syrupy.
But we all as kids would just grabbed any left over ones, later in the day...and eaten them plain.
You kitchen might get a little smokey..so open a window and turn on the exhaust fan.
My son did take a picture on his new cell phone...so as soon as he figures out how to send the picture I will post it.
