Miam ! des crêpes !!

C'est la Chandeleur today in France ! Probably one of my favorite holiday as it involves eating crêpes all day long ! Ah !

So today, here's my little gift to you, my secret crêpes recipe (ok, not really a secret, but it's a good one I promise)

You need : 
250g flour
2 eggs
50cl milk
2 tbs melted butter
oil for the pan
secret ingredient (totally worth it) : zest of an orange

and of course a crêpe pan (stating the obvious, I know)

So it goes like this :
Mix the flour with half of the milk
Add eggs, then melted butter and a pinch of salt
Add the rest of the milk and stir everything together until the pâte is smooth
Cover and let it stand for one hour (step that I always skip due to lack of patience)

Before starting to make the crêpes, add the orange zest
Put a little bit of oil in the pan and then pour a little bit of the liquid into the pan making sure it coats the surface evenly (move the pan in circular motion)
Cook for about 2 min until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with spatula, turn and cook the other side. 

Serve hot with a side of melted butter, sugar, jam, honey and nutella and let everybody try their own combo. It's the best ! My fave is melted butter + sugar...trop bon !
