Focus: Crepe Day
2nd February is a feast to commemorate the purification of the Virgin Mary and the presentation of baby Jesus (Candlemas). In France, this holiday is called Chandeleur, Fête de la Lumière, or jour des crêpes. It is traditional while making crêpes on this day to hold a coin in your writing hand and a crêpes pan in the other, and flip the crêpes into the air. If you catch it, your family will be prosperous for the rest of the year.
The first recipe I found on allrecipes when I searched for ‘best ever crepes’.
1 Cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter, melted
10 mins prep, 20 mins cooking, preheat
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and the eggs. Gradually add in the milk and water, stirring to combine. Add the salt and butter; beat until smooth.
- Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each crepe. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.
- Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a spatula, turn and cook the other side. Serve hot
Thought: Not having tried it, but from what comes up when I search it, Heavenly Hash looks a lot like RockLea Road (Darrel Lea) that we have locally in Melbourne.
