News from France: Crêpes Suzette!

Suzie Rannou, Intern Teacher who was at EFDM last year, has been making crêpes at home during quarantine. Can you make crêpes like Suzie?

Great for dinner with eggs, cheese, vegetables and meats, or they also make a wonderful dessert (try them with lemon and sugar, applesauce, or maybe some Nutella! MIAM!)

Here is a wonderful crêpe recipe to try at home!

Recette de crêpes:  for 15 crêpes
1 and 3/4 cups of all-purpose flour
1 Tablespoon of buckwheat flour
1/3 cup of sugar (less if desired or for savory crêpes)
1 tablespoon of canola oil or melted butter
1/3 cup of water
1 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 and 1/4 cups lowfat milk
In a bowl, mix together the sugar, buckwheat flour, melted butter or canola oil, water, salt, vanilla extract and the eggs. Alternate adding the all-purpose flour and the lowfat milk, mixing well after each addition.
Lightly grease and heat the pan, then pour a small ladle of batter onto the hot griddle and spread very thinly to the size of a dinner plate. Flip and serve with your favorite toppings! Between cooking each crêpe, be sure to lightly grease the griddle with a cotton cloth moistened with oil.

What have you been making during your stay-at-home? Please send us photos of your crêpes or other culinary adventures to be featured on our social media! Email photos to:
