Every Wednesday afternoon and Saturday morning Chef Thierry sells crepes at the Vineyard Farmers Market. This morning on KSEE Sunrise, he shows us how to prepare the perfect French crepe.
But you don't have to wait for the Farmers Market. You can find all sorts of French baked goods and crepes at Thierry's European Bakery, 3009 W Bullard Avenue in Fresno. (559) 435-6795
Basic Crepe Recipe
8 oz flour
1/2 oz sugar
1 quart milk
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and the eggs. Gradually add in the milk, stirring to combine and 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. Fill with your choice of fruit and sweetened whipped cream. Serve hot.
Makes about 20 large crepes
