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
- 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
- Start by mixing all of the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, salt) in a mixing bowl.
- In another mixing bowl add the milk, water, eggs, vanilla and mix until blended.
- 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!
- 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
- 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.
- Cook crepe for about 2-3 minutes or until the bottom is a light brown. Flip the crepe and cook the other side.
- 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 ;)
