Conference Crepes + Crepe Sauce

I don't know about you guys, but when General Conference rolls around you've got to have something special for breakfast. One of my favorites is Crepes. I've been slightly obsessed with them since I learned how to make them on my own.

They are way easier to make than it seems so don't be intimidated!

Here is my favorite
Recipe for Crepes

1 Cup all- purpose flour
2 eggs
1/2 Cup Milk
1/2 Cup Water
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
2 Tablespoons Butter (Melted)

1. Whisk together flour and eggs. 

2. Gradually add milk and water, stirring to combine.

3. Add salt and butter, beat until smooth (My batter is always lumpy, I usually just cook them that way and no one ever complains. However, you can strain the batter if it bothers you)

4. Pour approx. 1/4 Cup of batter per crepe. Tilt pan to coat the surface evenly. Cook on preheated griddle or frying pan (you can see I'm a fan of the cast iron skillet). I usually cook them on medium, but that can be too hot depending on your stovetop.

5. Cook for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is lightly brown. You can usually tell when they're ready to flip because the batter on top changes color. Flip with spatula (or a rubber scraper is my preferred choice) and cook the other side (about 30 seconds).

6. Serve Hot :)

These do take awhile to cook up the whole batch. I recommend preheating your oven to about 100 degrees and starting early. When a crepe is finished you can stack them on a plate in your preheated oven so that they stay warm :)

Also the crepes below are Gluten free, made with gluten free flour instead of all purpose. If you go this route you'll want a spoon to spread the batter out. They still taste great! They just don't look as pretty :)

You Can also serve them with what I call 

Crepe Sauce

1 Can Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 brick Cream Cheese

Beat together with a hand mixer!

It makes a fair amount, so you can freeze the extra and use it another day if you have leftovers!

Hope that you have a great General Conference!
