Crêpes (Thin Pancakes)

Crêpes (crepes, thin pancakes, blintz, bliny, mlynchyky) can be served with various dips and plain fillings (fresh fruits, sour cream, honey, jam, sugar, etc) or be staffed with more complex fillings like mushroom & cheese sauce, meat and rice, eggs and green onions stuffing, etc.

But in any case you will need to prepare crêpes first and that requires agility and some kind of training. Read how I prepare them in the step-by-step guide.

How to make, step-by-step:

  1. Prepare ingredients:

  4. Add 1 tbsp of sunflower oil and 1 cup of milk and mix well. Add the rest of prepared flour and mix again till batter become homogeneous, then start mixing in rest of the milk in small portions. You need to get thin batter, so stop adding milk when you get thickness like the following:

    Live batter to rest for 10-15 minutes.
  5. Warm 10” (or less) diameter frying pan on medium-high heat and oil it with sunflower oil. The actions you need to do next will require some kind of agility. Tilt frying pan with one hand, ladle batter with other and pour it on the pan from the top to the side. You need to tilt pan in circle motion to help batter to spread. You can add more batter if you see you ladled too less:

  7. Now you need to flip crepe to fry it from other side. Separate crepe’s edge from the frying pan (you can use knife or spatula, or any other tool), pick it up using your hands (or spatula again) and flip it to the other side:

    I usually do it by hands, but for that you need some kind of training to not burn your fingertips off, well long nails can help here too 🙂
  8. Fry crepe from other side for same time:

  9. Move crepe to the big flat plate and spread butter on top of it:

  10. Repeat the same procedure (step #5 – #9) for all batter in the bowl. Put another big plate on top of the crepes pile and flip it to other side:

  11. Thin pancakes are ready! Serve them warm (but not hot) for breakfast or snack with various dips, such as sour cream, fruit jams, honey or syrups.
