Make Some Homemade Crepes for Valentine's Day

Welcome to another edition of Cooking with the Girls at Williams-Sonoma.  Each month, Williams-Sonoma offers cooking classes for adults, and classes for kids several times a year.  These classes are hands-on, fun, and you walk away with a gift to cook the recipe you made at home.  You don't have to have cooking skills of any kind; the chef will go over step by step on how to create the inspired meal of the day.

Make Some Homemade Crepes for Valentine's Day

With Valentine's Day is here, what better way then to make your husband, kids, friends, or whoever, some delicious homemade crepes.

Yes, I know Valentine's Day is on a weekday, and you may not have time to cook it in the morning due to work.  But you can whip up a batch of these fancy French pancakes in the evening as well using ingredients like shrimps, veggies, or just have breakfast for dinner made with fruit fillings.  Crepes can be made in so many ways to your liking.

Make Some Homemade Crepes for Valentine's Day

Here's what you need to make Basic Crepes:

  • 1 Cup of Milk
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 Cup plus 1 Tbs. off All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 Tbs. Unsalted Butter, melted, plus 8 Tsp. Butter
  • 1/2 Tsp. Salt

In a blender, combine the milk, egg, flour, the 1/2 Tbs. melted butter and salt and blend until smooth.  Refrigerate for 2 to 8 hours.

In a crepe pan over medium heat, melt 1 tsp. of the butter to coat the pan evenly.  Lift the pan at a slight angle and pour 2 Tbs. of the batter into the center, tilting the pan to spread the batter to the edges.  Return the pan to the heat and cook until the crepe is golden underneath, 1 to 2 minutes.  Flip the crepe over and cook for 1 to 2 minutes.  Transfer to a plate and cover.  Repeat to make 8 crepes.

The girls had a lot of fun whipping up crepes with their chef and classmates.  At first, it was hard for them to flip over their crepes without them breaking apart in the pan.  It takes a bit of practice, but they got the hang of it after the second go around.

Remember, these crepes can be used with a variety of sweet or savory fillings.  The girls added strawberry filling with whip cream and powder sugar on theirs. The skies the limit when it comes to making crepes, you can fill them up with anything.
