    Hello All!


    Yesterday in France was "Chandeleur"...... the Crêpes day, and of course I made a few for my friends of the Stadium to warm them up a bit :Wink: ... and I thought may be my fellows funsters would enjoy a lesson of Crêpes.

    So I will be making them in chatroom "direct live" on Sunday at 4.00pm

    Shall I remind you that YOU do not need to have a webcam... you are watching me ! I am the one who needs one :RollEyes::BigGrin:(it might sound very stupid to say this, but a lot don't realise that they don't need one to watch ... but only when they want to be seen/heard!!)

    So if you want to make them at the same time here are the ingredients you need for about 10/12 crêpes (depending on your frying pan size)

    So there you need first of all :A flat 'teflon" frying pan. You need it with small lips (I think it is the word you use) otherwise you can't make it fly:Eeek:. Now If you don't want to make it fly then you will need the same tool you use to turn fried eggs:thumb:

    250grs of flour (basic one)
    3 eggs
    1/2 litre milk (have a bit more just in case it is a bit too thick!!if you're on diet , use 0% fat milk)
    60grs of butter (and if not salted+ a pinch of salt) + 2 teaspoon oil
    A teaspoon of Rum
    A teaspoon of Water of "fleur d'oranger"
    the juice of half an orange (or of the entire orange if you can't find the water of "fleur d'oranger")
    4 pinch of yeast (I always take the chemical one simply because the baking one is a bit too tasty for me... but it is up to you)

    I will do it as if I had no mixer, I guess you don't all have a mixer in the motorhome.

    You will need a rather big bowl
    and a small cup in which you will have the melt butter (if you are in a motorhome and no microwave you will need to have the butter out of the fridge a long time before, and a bain-marie to make it melt completly!)

    and a piece of coton (about the size of mini mandarin)

    Any question , just ask away!

    Yummy Yummy ......:BigGrin::BigGrin:


    Amicalement

    we're going to fall out Frankie

    The reason we're going to fall out is that I love crepes...................

    ........and my two boys and their wives are taking us out on Sunday (anniversary present) so I won't be able to tune in..........:cry:

    :Smile:.......will it be repeated on Sky later.........Griff.:france: xx One for you and one for JJ

    The hilldweller way.

    Make pancake as close to crepe as possible.

    Put on plate.

    Cover in ordinary sugar.

    Float on cheap brandy.

    Eat.

    Repeat until guilt takes over.

    Lick plate.



    PS......

    Oh dear I'm slavering.

    Yes, Lick plate and then put back in cupboard, no need to wash (student style) :thumb:

    I'll bet after that no funsters will want a cup of tea from my Van

    Thanks Frankie

    I have copied your receipt to a document so I can try to make it (or Sue will) .. we purchased a Tfail crepe pan in France last year.. Sue uses it for Pancakes.. works a treat, better than a frying pan.

    We took it on the motorhome all last year to the shows.. have used it from time to time.

    Yodeli,

    Myself and the family adore crepes, hope you don't mind but i have copied your recipe already,
    We have a crepe maker, purchased from Lidl and think its fantastic and adore our crepes with Grand Marrnier or Coeur de Comte liqueur

    Roll on 15.00 uk time... sure beats shovelling snow..

    Mick

    Happy crepe day in advance :BigGrin:

    And well done in beating a challenging italian rugby team in cold conditions
