Crepe Making Competition!

Friday afternoon we had my personal favourite activity for the month..

The Crepe Making Competition!

We followed the following simple recipe to make the crepe mixture:

  • 4 cups plain flour

  • A few pinches of salt

  • 4 eggs

  • 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.

We had a wide range of delicious ingredients to decorate our masterpieces with including; nutella, whipped cream, nuts, bananas, strawberries, blue berries, golden syrup, coconut, hundreds and thousands, chocolate fingers and icing sugar

 There was plenty of mixture to go around, so we all made ourselves multiple crepes to enjoy! The competition was judged on creativity and appearance.

Congratulations to Filipa for her beautiful love heart design! She is our crepe making champion for the month! I was especially impressed with how your crepe was a perfect circel 😉 Well done!
