Yesterday we had a Crepe Competition here at Lexis Byron!
We worked in 2 teams to make the crepes, following this simple recipe:
4 cups plain flour
A few pinches of salt
4 cups of milk
Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Blend until smooth. Add a little water and mix to desired consistency. Cover and set aside to rest for 5 minutes.
Heat a medium non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Spray with cooking oil. Using 1/4 cup mixture per pancake, pour batter over pan, tilting from side to side so batter covers base in a thin film. Cook pancake for about 1 minute or until underside is golden, then use a spatula to flip. Cook other side for just under a minute until golden. Repeat with remaining mixture, spraying pan with cooking oil between pancakes.
Then it was time for the really fun part; to make the tastiest, best presented crepe!
The students had plenty of tasty fillings and toppings to choose from; including bananas, honey, whipped cream, strawberries, raspberries, bananas, macadamia nuts, honey coasted cashew nuts, melted chocolate and Nutella!
Everyone’s creations looked and tasted absolutely delicious, but there could only be one winner…
Well done Alex!!! The winner of a 2 hour surf lesson with Let’s Go surfing!!
