Weekends at home have often started with hearty breakfasts. It would be anything really but it would always be super special. I specifically love it when mom makes drop scones. I swear no one does it better than her!! My elder sister does make the best crepes. Well I do too, but I prefer sleeping till 11 a.m. and not have to cook too early in the morning lol. We are now grown and we all participate in the breakfast process, we all contribute in different ways. Think kebabs or samosas or pancakes or loaf cakes… it could be anything. And in my home, I now also make sure that weekend breakfasts are just as yummy. If you follow me on Twitter, you know crepes often feature. And upon your request, today we are going to do the foundational crepe recipe which I hope you will really enjoy!
And the weather changed! We have traded sunny days, for the hum of generous showers. We have traded tiny shorts, for the cosiest of knits. We have traded super chilled mocktails, for very hot chai masala. And with that we are also welcoming all the comforting, indulgent, rich, warming meals we can get our hands on. I loooooove my crepes. Crepes, what Kenyans commonly refer to as pancakes, are super easy to make and they take up flavor so well. This makes them so fun to cook with. I also purchase some tomoko while in traffic on mbagathi way, and here we have the birth of my nutmeg crepes with a creamy tomoko sauce.
“Absolutely delicious!!!” Those were the first words that popped into my mind after having my first bite of this creation! My eyes widened and my heart raced as I savored the flavors of my coconut crepes with passion fruit curd. I pushed my camera aside and sat on the floor and just finished the first crepe before I got up to get some tea and eat some more. That morning, I had woken up with a severe Kraving for something sweet after enjoying lots of nyama-choma the past weekend. I just wanted something sweet so my mind went to work. I remembered taste a lemon curd I had at my friend’s place and I decided to make one but with passion fruit. To make my breakfast even more delicious, I decided to make crepes and add some desiccated coconut which I have lately been loving as an ingredient of late.Also, I am more of a crepe girl than a pancake girl :)). Have you ever made something for the very first time from the top of your head and shocked yourself with the amazing outcome? This was one of those days for me! I am sooooo excited to share this recipe with you, since you too can make this masterpiece and experience fantastic flavor with ingredients that are readily available to you.
I usually love having french-style pancakes, crepes, for breakfast because they are light and my sisters and I finally landed on the perfect ingredient combination. The most common pancakes however, are the thicker, American-style pancakes. I can count the number of times I have had these style of pancakes. In the past, I have never really been a fan of them because I personally found them a little bit heavy. To fix what I did not like, I experimented with some ingredients and I have finally landed on the perfect pancake recipe.
One of my friends has been asking for a pancake recipe on Instagram literally since the day I opened my account 😀 and this is one recipe I am proud to share because I know just how good it is. My sisters loved it, and I know you will too 🙂
