Crepes: Kasper German Pancake Recipe

Hello and thank you for coming back to my blog today. The first thing I want to share is this Crepes Recipe. For those of you who don't know what this is, it is a "dinner plate sized" thin pancake.

Why is this the first tidbit I wanted to share with you? Well, not only can you use crepes at breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but it was the very first dish I ever made on my own.

The Recipe:

  • Take 5 eggs and beat till fluffy/frothy
  • Add 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • Then alternately add flour and milk,3 cups each, in 3 additions
  • Then add 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla unless using for a savory crepe
  • Mix until incorporated
Warm pan with 1 teaspoon of butter until butter becomes fragrant. Add a ladle of batter and rotate the pan until the batter covers the whole bottom of the pan.

When bubbles rise to surface the crepe is ready to turn over. Continue to cook until the bottom is golden.

Slide the crepe onto a dinner size plate. Garnish your crepe with your favorite condiment (syrup, sugar and cinnamon, jam, whipped cream, or whatever you prefer). For a savory dish you could fill your crepe with seafood, asparagrus, and even groud beef.

Roll the crepe with your fork, into a cylinder shape.

I hope you enjoy this dish as it has been a staple food for our household for generations.

Thank You For Visiting,

Ingrid Turner

I am Kimberly and this is my mother. I can tell you that she is the most wonderful cook, as well as mother! This crepe recipe is a real winner, as we have this regularly, and I have always loved it.

My favourite way to eat them is with good 'ol Canadian Maple Syrup! My husband, Kenney, also loves it with Cinnamon & Sugar.

A real treat. In fact, it is Sunday morning and I am going to make some for us right now!

Please Enjoy and visit this blog again, as I am sure my mother with bless you with some great, family recipes that I know you will make over and over again, and fall in love with.

This is Kimberly again.

I made a slightly healthier version of our crepe recipe today. I substituted 1/2 of the flour required with wheat flour.

Please use an extra 3/4 - 1 cup of milk if using this recipe.

The family loved it, and wouldn't have noticed a difference in taste. They were more filling, as well as more healthy.
