Crêpes, called crespelle in Italian, are an excellent treat served either salty or sweet.




Ingredients for 4 people


1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
3 eggs
2 tbsp butter
1 pinch salt
1 tablespoon Rum


Preparation

1
In a small saucepan, melt the butter without letting it brown. Then remove it from the heat and let cool.

2
In a bowl, briskly whisk the eggs, then gradually add the flour, a pinch of salt, the rum and melted butter. At this point, slowly add the milk while whisking. Continue whisking until you have a smooth batter without clumps. Let rest for 20 minutes.

3
Heat a non-stick pan or crepe griddle. Once hot, brush on the pan with the melted butter. Use a ladle to add enough batter to cover the entire pan. Try to make the thickness even across the pan.

4
When the crepe begins to separate itself from the pan, flip the crepe quickly using a spatula and cook the other side.

5
Bubbles will begin to form as the egg cooks and the golden color is an indication that the crepe is perfectly cooked.

6
Once you have cooked both sides, place the crepe on paper towels. Continue making crepes until you have finished the batter.

7
Let cool slightly before filling. The crepes can be filled with cheese, sliced meats or sour cream.
