Yummy Crepes

yummy crepesIt ha been almost already 9 month that I did not write on my blog. 2016 has been a complicated year for me and I did not have the strenght and neither the discipline to write one article per week. But do not worry I did not lose the envy to bake and try new recipes. I guess it would have bee too hard not to bake anything. For me it is an habit but also a real pleasure so often shared with my friends.

A couple of weeks ago I was watching the movie “Eterernal sunshine of the spotless mind” which has been adviced by the great Bruce Benamran in his youtube chanel E-penser. In that movie the hero Joel played by Jim Carrey want to lose the memory of his gilfriend Cementine, thank to a medical process. Clémentine used it just before to forget Joel. But that complicated process is not what one should get from that story. Both forgot each other, but they meet again and start (again) to love each other. It is like destiny, life, could not see them separated. I find that story really nice. Joel in that movie is writing about his life in a diary. It made me think about my blog, and suddenly the desire to write came back.

Despite this almost depressiv introduction, do not worry ! My life is absolutely not terrible, it is quite the opposit. For that new article I wanted a recipe that everyone like in France and even more abroad: Crepes. This is a recipe I made that year for pancake day, ell I know I am pretty late. Thoses crepes did not came alone, I had made several spreads like lemon curd and caramel spread (called salidou in France). Pure happiness !

The recipe comes from the website La bigouéne, which proposes a mix of beer and milk for the crepe batter. Beer will bring a nice touch of lightness, but do not worry one do not feel the taste of beer at all. That recipe is really good and you have to trust people from britany, in France they are the master people to bake crepes !
