Crêpes are thin French pancakes that can be wrapped around just about anything to turn it into an elegant meal, or simply folded and topped with something yummy.
Step one: Make some crêpes.
Step three: Decide how you want to fill and close up the crêpes:
Put filling along the diameter of the crêpe and roll it up. If using a small plate, you might want to cut the crêpe in half – which has the added bonus of showing off the filling, as in the photo at the bottom of the page.
|Triangle folded crêpe
Place filling on a quarter triangle of the crêpe and fold in in quarters. This works well for spreadable fillings like Nutella and jam.
|Rectangle folded crêpe
Place filling in the middle of the crêpe and fold in the sides, then the top and bottom.
|Folded and rolled crêpe
Put filling in the center of the crêpe, fold in the sides, then roll into a log. This can be heated in a skillet with a bit of oil.
Finally, just add topping(s) and serve.
