This week has been a fun one for homeschooling. The older children are learning about the Hundred Years War between France and England, so for the preschoolers I chose the book Madeline (which takes place in Paris). It is so much fun to have them working on similar themes. Somehow cooking (and eating) has become an important part of our homeschool. Yesterday we made crepes for breakfast so we could sample some French food. I expected them to be good, and for the children to enjoy them. I did NOT expect them to be absolutely delicious…These were really great, so here is the recipe.
In large bowl whisk together 1 cup of flour and 2 eggs. Gradually add in 1/2 cup of milk and 1/2 cup water. Add 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 2 tablespoons melted butter. Beat until smooth.
Heat lightly oiled frying pan over medium heat. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter into pan. Tilt the pan in circular motion so the batter coats the surface evenly.
Cook crepe for about 2 minutes, until bottom is light brown. Loosen with spatula, turn and cook on other side.
I spread these with strawberry freezer jam, rolled them up and sprinkled them with powdered sugar. The children were so impressed, and they were delicious. This will become a regular in our house.
