Crepes, Plantain, Coffee.
Most people I know pronounce it like “Grapes” but with a C, which is, of course wrong. But picking on something like that would be like chastising people for pronouncing ”Burritos” with soft R’s instead of hard R’s, though to me it seems like pronouncing “Crepes” like “Grapes” takes more energy than pronouncing it correctly, which would be more like “Preps”. But that’s beside the point, just eat the damn thing, right?
I don’t know. I used to pronounce “Bruschetta” as “Broo-Shetta” until an Italian speaker corrected me (it’s “Brus-ketta”), to which I said “but everyone says “Broo-shetta” and she simply said “…and everyone is wrong.”
To which I said, “Touche”, sounding more like a Douche-Ay.
1 Cup Milk
4 Tbsp Butter, Burnt
1 Cup AP Flour, Sifted
Pinch, Fresh Nutmeg
Fresh Whipped Cream
Combine wet ingredients in a bowl and whisk. Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl and mix well, then pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients while whisking until smooth. Refrigerate for 8 hours.
Using a non-stick pan or crepe pan over medium heat, pour 2 ounces of the batter and swirl around pan. Allow to cook until edges are done and crepe moves freely. With a quick flick of the wrist, flip crepe over and cook for 30 seconds til done. Spread Nutella or any other spread and fold into quarters.
Top with fresh whipped cream and freshly grated nutmeg.
Enjoy. With a cup of hot coffee.
