On February 2, French Canadian Roman Catholics celebrate the Fête de la Chandeleur (Candlemas), honoring the day in the church calendar when Mary took the baby Jesus to the temple, by eating crêpes (thin pancakes). A traditional French Canadian proverb says "Manger des crêpes à la chandeleur apporte un an de bonheur" (Eating crêpes on Candlemas brings a year of happiness).

How to Make Crêpes de la Chandeleur (Candlemas Pancakes)

Step-by-Step

  1. Break eggs into a large mixing bowl and beat with a wire whisk.
  2. Measure flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into another bowl and stir to combine. Add gradually to egg mixture.
  3. Add milk gradually, continuing to stir with the wire whisk. The batter should be smooth, with no lumps.
  4. Pour oil into an 8-inch skillet to cover the bottom. Heat the oil over medium-high heat.
  5. Using a soup ladle, carefully pour a ladle-full (about ¼ cup) of the batter into the hot oil.
  6. Tilt the pan carefully to spread the batter into a large, thin crepe that covers the bottom of the skillet.
  7. Cook until the crepe is golden brown on the bottom (about 3 to 4 minutes).
  8. Carefully flip the crepe over to cook the other side. Remove crepe from pan, and blot on paper towel to remove excess oil.
  9. Serve with maple syrup.
