This is the crepes I remembered from home. One that is plain and sweeten. My mom used to make this plain crepes for us when we were young and I remembered we all loved it very much. Did you have this plain crepes before? When I came over here, I was actually surprised that American served their crepes differently, with so many condiments and fresh fruits.
Now, I made it occasionally for my girls (no school day). As you know, fortified cereal with milk is the easiest breakfast to serve kids in America. We don't have a pasar pagi (morning open market) to go to buy the kuih-muih, nasi lemak, porridge, or whatever goodies the market sells. So, I just give them what is convenient and also healthy for them. Even though most cereals that my kids liked are probably sweet but it is still better for them since all have been fortified with vitamins and minerals and they had it with milk.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 large egg
- 3 Tbsp. sugar
- 1 cup milk
1. Mix all ingredients together and stir until smooth.
2. Heat up a wok or non-stick pan. Add a little oil to coat. Add in a scoop of batter, swirl the batter to cover the pan. Make the crepes as thin as possible. Cook on both sides until done.
3. Roll up and serve. We have it plain in my mom's home as sugar is already added. Of course you can add jam, Nutella, peanut butter, whipped cream, banana, berries or whatever you desired.
