Ingredients ★

For Crepes

  • 2 large eggs

  • ¾ cup milk

  • ½ cup water

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla

  • 3 tablespoons sugar

  • 1 cup flour

  • 3 tablespoons melted butter, cooled

  • Butter for greasing the pan

For Fillings & Toppings

  • Matcha ice cream (or ice cream of your choice)

  • Hojicha ice cream (or ice cream of your choice)

  • Strawberries

  • Strawberry jam

  • Chopped toasted hazelnuts

  • Whipped cream

  • Nutella (or desert sauce of choice)

  • Fruit loops

  • Mini chocolate chips

  • Marshmallows

  • Optional: Mini M&Ms, corn flakes

For Feuilletine

  • 35g softened butter

  • 35g powdered sugar

  • 35g egg whites

  • 35g flour

For Vegan Crepes ★

  • 1½ tablespoons olive oil + more for the pan

  • 1¼ plant based milk of your choice

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla

  • 3 tablespoons sugar

  • 1 cup flour

  • ½ teaspoon baking powder

For Gluten-Free Crepes ★

  • 3 medium eggs

  • 4 tablespoons melted butter

  • 2 cups milk of your choice

  • 3 tablespoons sugar

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla

  • ¾ cup cassava flour

For Crepes ★

  1. Add all the wet ingredients (except the melted butter) to a blender and pulse one or two times.

  2. Add  sugar, flour and melted butter, making sure to scrape the sides with a  spatula, blend for 5-6 seconds, scrape sides again and blend for an  additional 5-6 seconds.

  3. Place  the batter in the fridge for 1 hour or up to overnight. If rested  overnight it may thicken, add a touch of water and whisk to thin it out  before using. If the batter is chunky you can strain it.

  4. Heat a non-stick frying pan on medium-low/medium heat. Be prepared to grease with butter between each crepe.

  5. Butter  the pan, pour about ¼ or ⅓ cup of batter into the center of the pan,  depending on the size of your pan. Swirl the pan immediately to spread  the batter out into a thin circle. Keep swirling until batter stops  moving.

  6. Cook  the crepe until the edges will start to peel and just start to brown.  You can lift the edges with your spatula and check to see if the crepe  is pale or light golden.

  7. Flip your crepe and cook for another 30-45 seconds or until golden on both sides.

For Vegan/GF Crepe Variations ★

See ingredients and blend using the same method above, adding the wet, then dry ingredients. These batters do not need to rest.

For Feuilletine ★

  1. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Add the egg whites and beat until homogenized. Add
    the flour and beat until fully combined.

  2. Using a spatula, spread the batter thinly over a silpat or parchment paper lined
    baking tray, using a stencil if desired.

  3. Bake  at 350 for 3-8 minutes, remove and allow to cool for 1 minute then  loosen the shapes from the parchment. If baked without a stencil, allow  to cool for 1 minute then break into small pieces. Store in a tightly  sealed container.

Please note: Feuilletine will not be fully demonstrated during the panel, but you can watch EGL Treats' video tutorial here if you would like to make these in advance!
