Spinach Crepes with Creamy Cheese FillingCrepes
Makes 10 crepes
1⅓ cup milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 tbsp. melted butter
¼ tsp. salt
Combine all ingredients in the base of your Power Chef™ with Whip Accessory attached. Replace cover and turn handle to mix the ingredients, until just combined; store in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, or up to two days.
Heat a crepe pan on medium-high heat for several minutes. The crepe pan is hot enough when a drop of cold water sizzles when splashed on the surface of the pan.
Lightly spray the pan with cooking spray. Ladle a small amount of batter, about ¼ cup, onto the surface of the pan, swirling the pan to achieve an even layer. After 30 seconds, gently peel the sides of the crepe away from the surface of the crepe pan using a Silicone Spatula. Once the bottom side has cooked through and has begun to brown slightly, flip the crepe over using the spatula. Cook for an additional 30 seconds and then set aside onto wax paper, placing individual sheets between the crpes to prevent them from sticking together. Repeat this process, spraying the pan with cooking spray each time.
