vanilla crepes with fresh blackberries
Last night my husband took our daughter on a walk in the neighborhood and they collected a bucket of fresh blackberries. My kids were astonished when he came home pulled out his own cookbook full of recipes he's collected and started making crepes. They filled the crepes with fresh blackberries and sweetened condensed milk then drizzled a little more on top. On some, we even sprinkled a little cinnamon on top. A wonderful dessert.
vanilla crepes with fresh blackberries (my husband)
1 1/2 cups milk
3 egg yolks
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons melted butter
sweetened condensed milk
sprinkling of ground cinnamon
In a blender, mix together the milk, egg yolks, and vanilla. Add the flour, sugar, salt and melted butter.
Heat a crepe pan over medium heat until hot. Coat with vegetable oil or cooking spray. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter into the pan and tip to spread the batter to the edges. When bubbles form on top and the edges are dry, flip over and cook until lightly browned on the other side and edges are golden. Repeat with remaining batter.
