  • Cooking Time: 40 minutes 

Ingredients

Crepes

1 can354mL Carnation® Regular, 2% or Fat Free Evaporated Milk

4 eggs

1 ½ cups375mL Robin Hood® All Purpose Flour

½ cup125mL water

¼ cup50mL butter, melted and slightly cooled

½ tsp2mL butter, melted and slightly cooled

¼ cup50mL granulated sugar

¼ tsp1mL salt

Filling

1 cup250mL lemon juice

½ cup125mL granulated sugar

Directions

  1 Blend evaporated milk, eggs, flour, water, ¼ cup (50mL) butter, sugar and salt in blender, food processor or bowl. Mix until you have a smooth thin batter. Let batter stand at room temperature 30 minutes (this prevents tough crepes).

  2 Heat a 10” (25cm) non-stick skillet or crepe pan over medium heat. Brush pan with remaining ½ tsp (2mL) butter. Add about ½ cup (125mL) batter to pan. Swirl batter around pan and pour excess batter back into bowl so crepe will be very thin. Cook until bottom browns 1 ½ - 2 minutes, and turn crepe over to cook until other side is pale golden, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. If you only have a smaller pan don’t worry, you will just get more crepes. Adjust the amount of lemon juice you are using on each crepe, otherwise they will be too tart.

  3 Transfer crepe to a clean work surface, turning over so that side cooked first is facedown. Drizzle 1 tbsp (15mL) lemon juice over crepe. Sprinkle with 1 ½ tsp (7mL) sugar. Fold crepe in half and then into quarters. Sprinkle top with ½ tsp (2mL) sugar. Continue with remaining crepes.

Tip(s)

If you want to assemble all the crepes ahead preheat oven to 250ºF (120ºC). As you assemble each crepe transfer to a heatproof platter and keep warm in the oven.


Crepes can also be filled with jam, fruit or ice cream.


For convenience crepes can be made 1 day ahead and kept chilled, separated between layers of wax paper and wrapped well or kept in an airtight container. You can also freeze them for up to 2 weeks. Reheat in a 350ºF (180ºC) oven for about 1-2 minutes before using.
