 Crêpes Recipe For Children

Cooking should be more than cooking; it should be fun, and children love to make their own snack by rolling up a crêpe! This recipe is an easy and fun activity that you both will enjoy.

Equipment: Large Bowl, Plastic spatula, Whisk, Frying Pan (non-stick), spray oil

 Batter Ingredients: 1.5 cup of Milk, 1 tablespoon of Butter, 3 Eggs, _ teaspoon of Vanilla Extract, 1 cup of Flour

Fillings: Various to taste.

  1. Prepare the batter:

Combine all ingredients except the milk in a large bowl. Have the child mix the ingredients with a whisk. Have the child continue to mix while you’re adding the milk into the bowl.

  1. Make the crêpes

Over medium heat, lightly cover the pan with spray oil. Pour one small ladle of the crêpe mix into the pan. Tilt and jiggle allowing the batter to cover the bottom of the pan.

Flip the crêpe using a plastic spatula when the edges start to turn golden.

Cook the crêpe until the bottom turns golden (45 sec). You can peek at the bottom of the crêpe by lifting up an edge with the plastic spatula. Re-spray the pan between each crêpe.

  1. Fill the crêpes

Have the child spread the filling on the crêpe and roll it up.
