Beet and Goat Cheese Crepe Recipe Recipe

I love the combination of beets and goat cheese. They pair wonderfully, and I’ve used them in many recipes. I had both ingredients on hand today, so I mixed them together and stuffed them in crêpes.

Making crêpe batter is very basic. I first learned how to make crêpes in kindergarten back in France, and I haven't forgotten since then. The quantities go like so: 2 eggs, 250 grams of flour (1-3/4 cups) and ½ liter of milk (2 cups). Allow to rest for a few hours. I then adjust the quantities of liquid by eyeballing until the perfect consistency is reached (see tips).   

Our friend Carole (she is by the way the editor of PhamFatale.com) always sends me wonderful cooking tips along with the corrections of my daily recipes. Carole and her husband David recently hosted a crêpe party at their home. She told me that leftover cooked crêpes store incredibly well in the freezer, which I immediately wanted to try. I’ve made several batches of crêpes since then, but even after my third attempt, no leftovers. What can I say, I live with wolves!

Crepe Party: La Chandeleur

02.02.10 by Jackie
Today (February 2nd) is La Chandeleur and crêpes are part of the French celebration. For those who don't know, a crêpe is a very thin pancake. The legend says that if you catch the crêpe flat (without it being wrinkled) with a pan after tossing it in the air with your left hand while holding a coin in your right hand, you will have a prosperous year until the next Chandeleur.

How to make a perfect sweet French crepe batter Recipe

There is almost nothing as quintessentially French as crêpes. For those who don't know, a crêpe is a very thin pancake.  It is perfect for a quick dessert, or for a savory meal. I make them whenever I'm missing France. 

Today I was in the mood for something sweet. If, like me, you're craving for something sweet, make some crêpes. Generously stuff the crêpe with fruits (blueberries, strawberries, canned peaches), jam and whipped cream, just sprinkle some plain sugar or spread Nutella inside the crêpe. Yum!
