Chocolate and banana crepes
Begin by mixing eggs, milk, and butter. Add some flour little by little to get the right consistency of the batter. Do the same when adding water in order to make it runny and free-flowing. Ensure that the batter is not thick. Cook a ladle of it and then add chocolate and banana to it. Top it with anything you like. Enjoy!
Sift whole wheat flour, refined flour, and salt in a bowl. In another bowl, mix together eggs, milk, and butter. Now mix the contents of the two bowls and strain to remove lumps. Cook one ladle of the mixture. Meanwhile, prepare a vegetable filling by cooking your favorite veggies in olive oil. Layer the crepe with cheese, veggies, drizzle a sauce and dig in.
Boil lemon juice, orange juice, and star anise. Let it simmer and add some sugar. In a bowl, mix eggs, flour, sugar, and milk. Whisk until smooth. Melt some butter in a pan and pour the above batter. Cook until brown. Flip the crepe and fold it quarterly. Spread some butter on the top, pour the orange juice, and sprinkle some cinnamon. It's done!
Spinach and feta crepes
Mix flour, honey, salt, melted butter, water, milk, and vegetable oil. Whisk to leave no lumps and then refrigerate for a while. Now heat a pan, grease it with oil, and pour a ladle of the batter to cook. Flip the crepe and layer it with chopped spinach and feta cheese. Fold, flip, and continue cooking it for a few minutes. Serve with yogurt.
Buckwheat crepe with strawberry stew
