Cade here! You all asked to make it clear when it was me sharing a recipe so here I am, haha. Crepes have always been a Saturday tradition with our family. Our girls will make sure they are the first ones up so that we don’t sneak down and try making something other than crepes. Our 5 year old is really into food shows so she wanted to create a new version and strawberry milkshake crepes were born!
Make sure you enter our giveaway so you can start your own tradition with your family! Everyone needs a high quality crepe pan and Le Creuset’s is worth $110! Just head to instagram and follow @ohsweetbasil and @lecreuset then look for the image of a crepe pan and leave a comment!
We looooove Le Creuset and the girls all surprised me in January with a new crepe pan from them. It is perfect. A regular skillet can make it tricky to get a perfect crepe and often they stick.
This nonstick pan has a long, sturdy handle that makes swirling to get the batter over the entire pan so easy and it’s nonstick surface helps the crepe release with a beautiful golden color and absolutely no tears. Now I just need to get the stick so I don’t have to tilt the pan!
The girls love to help in any capacity and they especially make sure I make their crepes right, haha. It can’t get much better than this though, being around the kiddos, cooking up their favorite breakfast and watching them enjoy every minute of it.
Our oldest has especially taken to styling the photos. She did this one and we think she did pretty darn good. Who knew breakfast could help us bond and shape their talents?
These strawberry milkshake crepes hit the spot for us, stuffed fulled of berries and creme, ahhhhh, they were so good! We will be adding these to our Saturday tradition just to keep things mixed up a little. What are some of your Saturday breakfast traditions?
Can Crepes be Made With Whole Wheat Flour?
Yes, for a more nutritious crepe, you can use whole wheat flour.
I suggest using white whole wheat flour instead of red wheat.
White whole wheat flour will give you the same nutrients with a lighter colored and textured crepe.
Can Crepes Be Made Ahead?
Crepes can be prepared ahead of time.
Stack cooked, cooled crepes with wax paper and refrigerate, up to 3 days.
How Do You Reheat Crepes?
Remove stack from the bag, and reheat in a microwave at HIGH for 15 seconds.
