Chocolate Crepes
Recipe type: Breakfast
Total time: 
Serves: 10 crepes
Extra thin and perfect with filling or topping with maple syrup, fresh fruit, and whipped cream! A little Nutella or peanut butter isn't out of line either :)
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1½ cups milk (preferably not skim)
  • 1 Tbsp canola oil
  • Butter, for cooking
  1. In large bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, sugar and salt.
  2. Add eggs and ½ cup of milk and whisk until very smooth. Add remaining 1 cup milk and whisk again until combined, then whisk in oil.
  3. Preheat a 9-inch non-stick skillet over medium heat and brush bottom of skillet with softened butter (add a touch more butter between EACH crepe for best results). For each crepe, pour approximately ⅓ cup of batter into the centre of the hot pan and tilt rapidly to spread dough evenly around the pan. Let cook until edges begin to crisp and lift easily off the pan, then flip and cook for another 10-30 seconds.
  4. Serve as you go (you can really only make one at a time but they only take 2-3 minutes each), or keep warm on a baking sheet in the oven, with oven turned on to approximately 200 degrees, until all are done.
  5. Top with maple syrup and/or your favourite fresh fruits or fruit sauce!
