Plate Up. Chocolate Crepes


Happy Easter Everyone. I hope you are all enjoying the long weekend as much as I am. In the spirit of this chocolate-filled holiday, here is my recipe for a decadent breakfast. Feel free to garnish with the eggs from your hunt!

What you’ll need
1 cup milk
¾ cup plain flour
¼ cup cocoa powder
3 tablespoons caster sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon butter, melted
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch salt

What to do
Whisk all ingredients vigorously until the batter is completely smooth. Allow to rest in fridge for 20 minutes before cooking.

Melt a little butter in a crepe pan and pour in 3 tablespoons of batter. Swirl the pan quickly to create a crepe and flip after a minute or so by loosening the edges and turning with a spatula (or freehand flipping if you’re especially nifty!). Repeat with remaining batter. Serve dusted with icing sugar and a drizzle of maple syrup and melted chocolate. Serves 4.
