Not-so-classic crêpes recipe. Fill with whatever you fancy!

Makes 3 large pancakes
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • about 250ml skimmed milk
  • 6 tbsp flour 
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • 1/8th tsp vanilla
  • Nutella/chopped hazelnuts/biscuits/coconut or any other filling

Whisk lightly the egg in a bowl. Add enough milk to have 250ml. Add the vanilla, brown sugar and cinnamon and then add the flour little by little. You should end up with a slightly thickened mixture. 

Heat a non-stick pan until it is very hot, then spray some oil and spread all over the base and a little up the sides with a brush. Otherwise you could use a kitchen napkin to spread. It is very important that the pan is very hot, otherwise the pancake will stick. 

Pour a third of the mixture in the pan while swirling the pan around, so that all the base of the pan is covered. Keep swirling the pan until the base is covered evenly with the mixture. Cook until it is slightly browned underneath and then turn on the other side. If you don't know how to flip the pancake, you could flip the pan upside down onto a plate, and then slide the pancake back into the pan. 

Once the pancakes are ready, spread a quarter of the pancake with Nutella and sprinkle whatever you fancy! I like biscuits, nuts and shredded coconut. Fold in half, and then in half again. Serve with ice-cream and enjoy!

P.s. For the last pancake my boyfriend had the great idea of adding some Jameson's whiskey to the batter. I added about a teaspoon. It did just add that depth of flavour to it :)
