Recipe by Lianna Banana
This is my adaptation of Crepes. Unsweetened soy milk is best. (I'm lactose intolerant.) Reduce the sugar if you use sweetened soy milk. For vegetable crepes, omit vanilla and reduce or omit sugar. (It does not need salt, but if you must, you can add a pinch of salt.) For what it's worth, I am using an old Wagner cast iron frying pan, that's so worn I can't read the markings, but it measures 8 3/4" wide at the top (inside dimension), and cooking on a Frigidaire glass/ceramic cooktop. I started with the element set at 4 and then reduced it to 3.5 after the first 2 or 3 crepes.
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 3 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon vanilla
- 3⁄4 cup soymilk (unsweetened)
- 1 -2 tablespoon water (optional)
- 3⁄4 cup whole wheat flour, sifted
Directions See How It's Made
- Add the first five (5) ingredients to the blender, and blend.
- Add the flour, half at a time, while blending.
- If the batter is too thick, add the water, 1 tablespoonful at a time, re-blending after adding.
- Heat an 8 or 9 inch frying pan over medium heat. (Careful to not get it too hot!).
- Spray with pan spray or very lightly coat inside of pan with olive oil. (If it smokes, the pan is too hot.).
- Pour 1/4 to 1/3 cup of batter into pan and quickly tilt pan all around to cover all of bottom of the pan.
- Batter should be a thin layer on the bottom of the pan.
- Cook until top is no longer wet, and underside is golden brown.
- No need to turn the crepe over. (But if crepe should begin to get too dark on the bottom, quickly turn it and smooth it with the spatula and cook for just a few more seconds, then remove. Be sure to lower the heat if this happens.).
- Serve filled with fresh berries, mashed and lightly sugared -- or your favorite dessert crepe filling.
- Top with your choice of whipped toppings.
