Recipe by Fireflylover

A cherished food memory from my childhood. I would stay at my cousin's house on the weekend and this is what her father would make for us in the morning. It is a rolled crepe-like pancake and topped with butter and syrup. As kids, we would unroll them and THEN slather them with butter, roll them back up and THEN pour the syrup. Any way that you eat them, they are wonderful. My dear cousin also mentioned to me that she tried it with flavored syrups like Boysenberry and how her father used to experiment with different flavored extracts. Coconut was one of her favorites.

Wow. Okay, I've never made crepes before, but I have made tortillas from scratch. So, it took me a little while to get the hang of this. For my stove, I had to turn the temperature down to about medium for these to work. Honestly, the first one I tried after getting the cooking method straight didn't impress me all that much. It was good, but not impressive, because I hadn't put any toppings on it, not even margarine. But then, I decided to see what would happen if I rolled some whipped cream up in them. Now, THAT was awesome! I can't wait to try this with whipped cream and some kind of berry sauce! It's going to be wonderful! Thank you!
