Our family is a big fan of crepes! They are delicious and so easy to make. We recently added Cookie Butter to them and it’s our new favorite thing! Seriously amazing! If you haven’t tried Cookie Butter you are going to want to run to Trader Joe’s. And if you don’t have a Trader Joe’s you can order it on amazon, it’s just a bit more.
And the timing is perfect because this Tuesday is Shrove Tuesday. It’s basically a Mardi Gras for England only minus beads and giant party. Essentially our friends in the UK get ready for Lent by cleaning out their pantries. They make pancakes (which are pretty much crepes) and fill them with yummy things. Lemon juice and sugar are traditional toppings. Usually we opt for Nutella, strawberries, and bananas.
And even though I don’t participate in lent I’m all about celebrating Mardi Gras and Shrove Tuesday, which are always the same day. We usually do Shrove Tuesday in the morning and Mardi Gras in the evening. This year it’s also the same day as Galentine’s Day. So it’s going to be a big party.
I miss getting together with my English BFF in California and eating pancakes together. I’m sure she would approve of our newest topping choice: Cookie Butter, bananas, and fresh whipped cream. And since Cookie Butter is basically the new Nutella (or rather has been for the last couple of years) I vote you add it in your crepes. Or add it to your pancake depending on your background. Our English friends prefer their pancakes thin and rich instead of light and fluffy.
- 4 eggs, beaten
- 1 1/3 c milk
- 2 T Butter, melted
- 1 C flour
- 2 T sugar
- ½ tsp salt
- Mix ingredients together. I love using my blender.
- Heat griddle on medium.
- Use pam or butter to grease a medium pan.
- Using a laddle pour your batter on the pan.
- Pick up your pan and twirl it around to smooth out your batter.
- When your batter changes color use a spatula to flip it over. If you have a great pan you can flip your pancakes using a pan.
- Transfer to a plate. Continue with the rest of the batter.
- Top with cookie butter, bananas, and whipped cream
Don’t they look amazing? My kids were pretty excited when I made these. Cookie Butter Crepes would also make for a great Valentine’s dessert idea. They look extra fancy and impressive but are seriously so easy. My kind of dessert.
I would love to hear what you love to put Cookie Butter on? (Share it in the comment below) I usually just grab a spoonful here and there. Or I make these yummy Cookie Butter Rice Krispies. I already picked up a new jar so we are ready for this Tuesday. If it’s possible I like crepes with cookie butter even more than Nutella. I know, right?
I would love it if you can give this post a pin. And click over to follow me on Pinterest. I love sharing ideas and traditions to bring families closer together.
