Relaxing on New Year's Day

Sunny crêpes on New Year's Day. What else could I ask for? As a bonus, I can't cook a crêpe to save my life so, that's usually Martin's job. All I have to do is relax, have a cup of coffee and enjoy the first sunny day of 2009. Life is good. Happy New Year!

1/2 cup canola oil
4 eggs
1 cup milk
2 cups water
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/3 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar

In a large bowl, mix the oil, eggs, milk and water.

In a smaller bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and beat well with a whisk.

In a slightly oiled, nonstick skillet over medium heat, ladle about 1/2 cup of the batter and swirl it around as to get a nice, round crêpe. Cook for a few minutes then flip and cook the other side a few minutes also. Adjust the heat to make sure the crêpes cook fairly quickly, but don't get scorched. Keep the crêpes warm in the oven, on its lowest heat possible. Serve with maple syrup, Nutella, caramel sauce, whatever suits your mood.
Pin It!
