These are the easiest crêpes style Pancakes you can make. They are a real kiddie’s favourite. This pancake recipe produces French crêpes style pancakes, not the fluffy American style ones.
These type of French pancakes should be as thin as possible.
We used to eat pancakes just on Shrove Tuesday, but now my daughter asks for these several times per week.
She absolutely adores them. It is so rewarding to see her face light up when she knows I am going to make them for her.
We normally use half the quantity below to give us both 3-4 pancakes. The quantity given below will make about 12-16 good size pancakes, enough for the whole family.
Everyone and every country is different with their pancakes or crepes.
If you were in the Netherlands you would have a slightly different type of batter, which is a bit thicker.
There they like to serve up sweet and savoury pancakes, and one pancake is whole meal! Often bacon will be added to the pancake dough in the pan and they add a type of thick syrup (stroop) to sweeten it.
The beauty of this crepe recipe is that it is flexible. You can add whatever you want to them to make them as you wish.
Banana crepes, Nutella crepes, sugar and lemon crepes, bacon and syrup crepes, fruit crepes. Whatever takes your fancy basically!
And I think the thinner pancakes just taste better.
They are also a good idea to make up front and can be filled with Nutella for a tasty road trip or picnic snack.
I personally like to eat them with sugar and lemon juice as a dessert crepe. My daughter likes them with fruit and Nutella and Maple syrup.
Whatever your preference, I have yet to find a kid that does not love them!
