Sweet French Crepes

Crepe is a very thin pancake made from flour, and poured onto a hot frying pan and served with a variety of fillings. It is widely consumed in France. There are crepes served with savory fillings like cheese, eggs and meat for lunch or dinner. When sweet, they can be a dessert or even perfect for breakfast. It can be spread and topped with sliced fruits or whipped cream. 
Eliminating the sugar, vanilla and kahlua, you have a crepe ready to fill anything savory for your lunch/brunch. Go French! Here goes the recipe,

1/2 cup All purpose flour (Maida)
1 Egg
1/4 cup +2tbsp Milk
1/4 cup Water
1 1/2 tbsp Oil/Butter
1/2tsp Vanilla extract
1tbsp + 3/4tsp Sugar
1tbsp Kahlua
Sliced Strawberry /any fruit
Powdered sugar, for dusting
 How to:
  • In a big bowl, mix together the flour and sugar and keep it aside.
  • In another small bowl, mix the remaining ingredients and beat well.
  • Now pour the beaten mixture and blend'em with the flour mixture.
  • Place the batter in the fridge for an hour as it reduces the bubble formation.
  • Heat a non-stick skillet, grease it with oil/butter and pour a small ladle-full of batter and gently swirl to spread evenly.
  • Cook for a few seconds, gently flip it and cook the other side. (I cooked for a few extra seconds to get the golden brown color.)
  • Remove, let cool and serve warm with fresh cut fruits and lightly dusted with powdered sugar.
