"What ingredients do we need to make Croatian crepes?" Good question! Here is the recipe. You will need: 2 eggs, 1 cup of flour, 1/2 teaspoonful of baking soda, 1 teaspoonful sugar, 1 cup of milk and one lemon zest. (this makes about 8-12 depending on the size of pan)
How to Prepare Crepes:
1. Mix milk and eggs, then add the rest of the ingredients. Feel free to improvise: you can add more milk or flour if your batter is too runny or too thick.
2. Pour a little vegetable oil on a folded paper towel, and wipe the pan evenly.
3. Pour in 2 - 3 tbsp. of batter and quickly move pan around, so that batter spreads evenly, covering the whole surface with a thin layer.
4. Let cook for about 1 minute. Then, flip with a metal spatula, and cook other side for about 30 seconds.5. Repeat the steps until you run out of batter.
Beli was a great assistant.
We normally use orange zest but since we were out of oranges we used lemon zest. In my opinion, they turned out excellent!
Crepes can have any sort of filling (jam, chocolate, fruit, even peanut butter) but in our household, we use the chocolate-hazelnut spread Nutella. You can eat them rolled up like a burrito (my preferred way) or fold them in quarters (fold in half then fold again.) Yum, yum!
