Custard Crepes


Sweet crepes can be served as a wonderful dessert. This is a simple and delicious crepe batter recipe. I have used flour and custard powder in this recipe with a sweet fruit filling. You can also use custard sauce as a filling which will enhance taste and serves as a tasty dessert.

Ingredients
All purpose flour- 1 cup
Custard powder- 5 tsp
Milk 3/4 cup
hot water 1/2 cup
Eggs- 2
Salt - a pinch
Sugar- 1 tsp
Choice of chopped fruits-  1/2 cup
Maple syrup- 2 tsp
Vanilla essence- a few drops

Combine one tsp of sugar and custard powder with a few tsp of water and make a smooth paste. Add 3/4 cup of hot water and set aside. Allow it to cool.( If you want to make the sauce use the same process but add milk instead)
In a large mixing bowl whisk together the eggs and flour and slowly add milk little by little and finally the custard mix and stir to combine. Scoop batter into a hot greased griddle and spread the batter just like a pan cake or dosa.Cook on both sides. Mix fruit with maple syrup ( or you can use custard sauce) and use as a filling. Enjoy
