It's cold, come here, let me hug you with my mouth

Wednesday, 6 July 2011

It was a whopping eight degrees yesterday. At one point I think I froze into a position and did not move until I realized I needed to pee. After which I realized I was ravenous.

There have been two baking staples in my house since I was knee high to a grasshopper: 1.) Cake and 2.) PANCAKES! I haven't had pancakes in years. I was a little of a pancake entrepreneur growing up. I used to sell them at all the school flea markets and make quite a bit of money. Needless to say I think I gave pancakes a bit of an overkill and I chose not to eat any until we went to Paris and well, them Frenchies know how to ignite my crepe love.

I decided to swan dive into a stack last night, after Mieke my gym buddy and I decided it was too cold to move and we would die two fat hibernating whales instead.

Here is my recipe. If you are reading this in my growing readerships of US, UK and Asia, please note that South African pancakes are pretty much crepes and not like the American flapjack.

Also note this recipe was created through a trial and error period of 12 years of school. It is MY recipe. Please credit me if you use it or reproduce it.

Le Crepe la Seed
Le Ingredient:
1 cup water
1 cup milk
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 Tbs sugar
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1 cup flour, sifted
1 Tbs butter, melted

Le Directions:
Mix wet ingredients together. Sift the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt into a bowl. Stir the wet ingredients into the flour mixture. Lastly add the melted butter and mix until smooth. Spoon a ladle of the mixture into a piping hot pan and cook for about a minute before flipping over. Serve with cinnamon sugar and a squeeze of lemon or good old golden syrup. 

Le Magnifique!
