Crepe, Silken Creation Style 可麗餅

Crepe is very popular in Taiwan, especially at the night market.  It’s so hard to find good crepe in the US though.  I am talking about the Taiwanese style crispy crepe.  I finally had it and decided to come up with my own recipe.  If you like soft crepe, just shorten the cooking time of the crepe. 

Ingredients:

  • Vanilla Silken Style Creations: 1 cup
  • Flour: 1 cup
  • Baking Powder: 1 tsp
  • Water: 2/3 cup

Direction:

  • Blend all the ingredients together with a mixer.  Add the water last so you can control how thick the batter is.  I like mine a little on the thin side so it’s easier to spread on the crepe pan.
  • Heat the crepe pan on low to medium heat
  • Pout one ladle of batter onto the pan and use the crepe spreader to spread out the batter to make a thin crepe
  • The pan will start to give off steam
  • After about 2 minutes, use a spatula to loosen the crepe from all sides to check the color.
  • Depending on how crispy you like your crepe, adjust the cooking time accordingly.  The longer the time, the crispier the crepe gets.
  • Fill the crepe with your favorite topping.  I like mine with chocolate chips or nutella.
