I love to have breakfast for dinner. Eggs and bacon or ricottage pancakes. Last night I made sweet crepes. I was talking to my friend Heather (a post weight loss surgery tweep) and her family does breakfast for dinner once a week. They call it Blinner. I love the name. So here was my Blinner last night...
2 Eggs, beaten
1/2 cup Soy Milk (I use Silk Vanilla)
1/4 cup minus 1 Tablespoon Water
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Vanilla)
2 Tablespoons Canola Oil
1/2 cup Spelt Flour
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
dash of Salt
For savory crepes: leave out the SF Torani and use 1/4 cup water.
Blend all ingredients on low till thoroughly combined. Pour into a bowl, cover and refrigerate for a half-hour.
Spray a non-stick 8 to 10 inch crepe pan with Pam. Pour 1/4 cup of the batter into the pan and twirl it around to spread the batter in a thin circle.
Cook till top appears dry and flip. Cook a minute or so on other side. Repeat till all batter is used. While you are making them you can keep them warm in a low oven 200 degrees or nuke for 20 seconds before serving. Makes 8-10 crepes depending on size of pan.
Yes, you can use a fry pan but crepe pans with their shallow sides make the process so much easier.
