Happy Saturday - Crepe de Froment

Ever since the man of the house and I became an item, some 14 years ago we have devoted one morning each weekend for the preparation of a special breakfast. At the moment it's Saturday, for on Sunday mornings I am a cycling widow.

Now for those of you that know him, Mr Hausfrau is a mean cook and in a lot of ways better than me, but he can't bake for crap....and that's fine - I don't like to share my Kitchenaid with anyone.

But I digress, recently a postcard showed up from Mr Hausfrau's aunt, with a recipe for Crepes De Froment. Always on the lookout for new crepe recipes, Mr Hausfrau was up for the challenge....and the result....yummo....recipe details below.

Crepes de Froment (translated for you)

250 g flour
125 g caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 eggs
500 ml milk

Mix it all together in the usual manner, and voila crepes.

We find that having a special crepe/pancake pan is the trick - NEVER EVER use it for anything else.

Mr Hausfrau makes an apple and sultana concoction for the top...Fry up some apple slices (2-3 apples) in butter until soft, add 30 g brown sugar and cook until dissolved, stir in 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, 25 g sultanas and 1/2 teaspoon of mixed spice. Cook for one minute until bubbling.

Place this on top of your crepes and dust with icing sugar. Drizzle with maple syrup (make sure it's the real deal too).

Yes for those that are guessing with the cycling and the crepes, Mr Hausfrau is NOT of German descent!

    We're weekend breakfast fans too - this morning we had fluffy pancakes with orange and cardamom


Thank you for taking the time to read my blog...I especially love it when I get comments. Have a great day, suzy xoxo
