101RECIPES: Coffee Crepes
If you want to start your day with a truly special breakfast or conclude a dinner with a delightful dessert, coffee crepes are the perfect choice. This recipe will guide you step by step in making thin and aromatic crepes, with a touch of coffee that will make them irresistible. Without further ado, let’s get our hands dirty
- 1 cup of flour
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup of milk
- 2 tablespoons of cold espresso coffee
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- 2 tablespoons of melted butter
- A pinch of salt
- Extra butter for greasing the pan
- Maple syrup or honey (for serving, optional)
- Whipped cream (for serving, optional)
Let’s start by preparing the batter for coffee crepes. In a large bowl, combine the flour and sugar, then make a small well in the center. In another bowl, lightly beat the eggs and then pour them into the well in the flour. At this point, add the cold espresso coffee and milk to the batter. Continue to gently mix, working from the center outward, until you achieve a smooth and lump-free consistency. Pour the melted butter into the batter and mix well to make it homogeneous. The butter will add a rich flavor to the crepes, but you can skip it if you prefer the lighter version.
Once the batter is ready, cover the bowl with a clean kitchen towel and let it rest at room temperature for about 20-30 minutes. This will give the ingredients time to fully blend.
After this time, heat a non-stick skillet over medium-low heat, the size of which you prefer for the shape of the crepes, and lightly grease the surface with a bit of butter. Pour a ladleful of coffee batter into the heated pan and tilt the pan to evenly distribute the batter over the entire surface.
Cook the coffee crepes until the edges begin to detach from the pan, and the top surface slightly dries. At this point, use a spatula to gently flip it and cook the other side until golden brown. Repeat the process with the remaining batter, lightly greasing the pan with butter before pouring each new portion of batter.
Serve the coffee crepes hot and garnish them as desired with maple syrup, honey, or whipped cream. You can also add fresh fruit or chopped nuts if you like.
Now you have everything you need to prepare delicious coffee crepes. Enjoy your meal!
