My entire family love pikelets, pancakes or anything in between.  But I had a whole stack of buttermilk to use up, so I decided that this was the time to make some buttermilk crepes.

Some tips:

  • Make sure your pan is hot (not crazy hot, but more like an 8 out of 10) and use a good quality butter while cooking.
  • Turn the heat down once you have poured in the mixture and swirl around the pan to get them nice and thin.
  • Use more or less milk if needed.  This mixture should be quite runny and this will vary depending on the flour you use.  Organic flour needs more milk than non-organic flour (and I used organic flour)

Toppings that are great:

  • Fresh lemon juice and raw sugar
  • Ice-cream and strawberries
  • Fruit and organic maple syrup
  • Strawberries, raspberries, whipped cream and chocolate topping

We would absolutely love you to leave us a comment below and let everyone know what you think. It’s comments like this that make our day, and help us improve a recipe if we need to. We look forward to reading what you think!
