Yummy. And now they’re gone.

Interesting Fact: A crêpe (pronounced /kreɪp/, French IPA: [kʀɛp]) is a type of very thin, cooked pancake usually made from wheat flour. The word, like the pancake itself, is of French origin, deriving from the Latin crispa, meaning “curled.” While crêpes originate from Brittany, a region in the northwest of France, their consumption is nowadays widespread in France and is considered the national dish. Crêpes can be compared to the African injera, the tortilla, the Indian dosa and the Mexican sope. Crêpes often have a fruit filling of syrup, mixed berries, fresh fruit or lemon cream.

  1. Ooohhhh…I love crepes, haven’t had them in so long. i used to make Woody Allen Crepes…Crepes filled with vanilla icecream, banana slices, pecans and caramel sauce!

      • Let me know what you think! I had them at a restaurant many years ago and so replicated them. Butterscotch or caramel, pecans, whipped cream, bananas and vanilla icecream can never turn out wrong 😉

      • All those ingredients sound delicious. Can’t wait to make the and I will keep you posted on results. 🙂

  2. Thanks for including your camera setting for this shot!

    Any idea on how fast the mixer blades were turning? Low, medium or high? You froze them perfectly.

  3. Great photo, I find the different textures and movement interesting. On second look it reminds me of the legs of a bird, just a little.

    • Thank you very much. I am very happy you enjoyed some of my work. And now that I look at it it does look like it a little. 🙂
