pomegranate crepes

Hiii friends! Thanks for visiting and all the feedback about making a recipe blog… I finally did it and hopefully you enjoy! I’m going to start out with an easy recipe… it’s my go-to late night when I can’t find anything sweet in the pantry. It’s suuper easy to make and can be topped with any kind of fruit you like and/or syrup. Most the ingredients you’ll probably already have in your kitchen, so this is a very inexpensive meal. Obviously normal people would eat this for breakfast but I love breakfast food at any time of the day :)

Recipe: Pomegranate Crepes

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 pomegranate
  • butter

Directions:

  1. Start by mixing all of the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, salt) in a mixing bowl.
  2. In another mixing bowl add the milk, water, eggs, vanilla and mix until blended.
  3. Slowly pour the wet ingredient mixture into the dry mixture. Mix until batter is smooth. Be careful not to over mix the batter, once the lumps are gone you’re good!
  4. If you decide to use pomegranate seeds on top of the crepes (which I defiantly recommend, YUMMM!!), use this site and follow the steps to de-seed the fruit. These seeds are delicious, but be careful they can be veryy messy! I tried this method once and always take the time to do this, it works like a charm. But if you want to top the crepes with something else, go for it! http://mideastfood.about.com/od/tipsandtechniques/ss/deseedpomegrana.htm
  5. Heat griddle or skillet over medium heat. Melt a small amount of butter to keep the batter from sticking, you will need to do this every few crepes. Using a 1/4 measuring cup, pour batter on hot pan and tilt in a circular motion to allow the batter to coat the bottom of the pan evenly. The crepes will be thin but that’s what you want.
  6. Cook crepe for about 2-3 minutes or until the bottom is a light brown. Flip the crepe and cook the other side.
  7. Top crepes with pomegranate seeds, some powdered sugar and syrup. ENJOY!!!
  • TIP: If you want to serve all at once turn your oven on 200 degrees and put the crepes on a baking sheet lined with foil until you are finished with the crepes. Crepes are usually rolled with fruit and sometimes a cream cheese filling however, most of the time I just eat them like pancakes.

Goes well with homefries and bacon.. but then again what doesn’t go well with bacon ;)

    “i’m going to start out with an easy recipe” … apparently you don’t realize that your ability to make crepes is quite abnormal …. well not abnormal but the idea of making crepes frightens me! I’m going to be addicted to this blog, btw!
