Crepe is a type of very thin pancake, usually made from wheat flour or buckwheat flour. The word is of French origin, deriving from the Latin crispa, meaning “curled”. While crêpes are often associated with Brittany, a region in the northwest of France, their consumption is widespread in France, Belgium, Quebec and many parts of Europe, North Africa and the Southern Cone of South America.

Crêpes are made by pouring on wheat batter onto a frying pan or flat circular hot plate, often with a trace of butter or vegetable oil on the pan’s surface. The batter is spread evenly over the cooking surface of the pan or plate either by tilting the pan or by distributing the batter with an offset spatula. The consistency of the batter cannot be too thick, nor can the pan be too hot. In either of these instances, the crêpe could be ruined with lumpiness or tears. Cooking may take 15 to 30 seconds until the cooked side gets brown cooked spots on it then it is turned over to cook the other side.

2. Cover the batter with a dump cloth for 30 min to allow it to settle well. After that, pre-heat the pan using medium low heat. When hot, {Best to use a soup spoon} scoop up the batter and pour it on the pan. “Lift the pan, and rotate it left /right so that the batter could spread. –  cook for 15 to 30 sec, let it heat up -then flip to the other side.

3. Serve while they are still hot. Crêpes are served with a variety of fillings, from the simplest savory or sweet fillings. I decided to go with the peanut butter and chocolate syrup.
