Ingredients

  • 500 g flour (2 cups)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 L milk (cow or plant-based)
  • rum optional or another flavour (vanilla, orange blossom...)
  • butter to grease the pan

Instructions

  • Pour the flour into a bowl. Add the salt and sugar.
  • Add the eggs one after the other, mixing in between each.
  • Gradually add the milk until you have a smooth paste. Add the rum (about two caps, or 1 tbsp).
  • Allow the batter to rest for 1 hour (or more, to eat them at breakfast I often prepare it the night before and leave it in the fridge overnight).
  • Heat a flat pan over medium heat and grease it with butter. Pour a ladleful of the batter while rotating the pan to spread it over the entire surface. Cook for about 1 minute and then turn over to the other side. Cook for about 1 minute more. Repeat with all the batter.
  • Serve the crepes with cinnamon sugar (my favourite), jam, maple syrup, chocolate spread, fruit... whatever you like.

Notes

Use the easy way : you can prepare the dough with a blender. Put all the ingredients together and blend until you get a smooth batter. Here you go, no more lumps !
