Last Friday afternoon we had a Crepe Making Competition in the student kitchen. We had a range of delicious toppings including; nutella, whipped cream, bananas, strawberries, golden syrup, 100’s and 1000’s, coconut, marshmallows, chocolate and nuts.
We prepared our mixture and then got busy whipping up our crepes.
- 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.
Once everyone had made their crepes, it was off to the decoration station to begin creating the masterpiece.
Absolutely delicious. I couldn’t possibly choose a winner as they were all so amazing.
And lucky for us it was such a beautiful Friday afternoon we could all sit outside and enjoy.
