The French Crepe Tradition
February the second is a special day in France, It is the Chandeleur, a.k.a the French crepe day. That’s why, almost every French family cooks crepe this day. The origin of this tradition comes from an old superstition. This superstition says that if you could flip your crepe while holding a gold coin in the other hand, you would prosper this year. On Fat Tuesday as well people likes to eat crepes or beignet (french donuts). Nowadays, we basically eat crepes any days, just for the pleasure of it.
Sweet Crepe or Salty Crepe
It all depends of your preferences. I personally like to eat both of them. However, I’d rather use buckwheat flour for salty crepes and all purpose flour for sweet crepes. Even though, all purpose flour works perfectly with salty crepes.
This recipe is made with all purpose flour and can be use with any type of crepe you’d like. This recipe needs no passive time, takes less than 10 minutes to prepare and taste amazingly good. Thus, if you fancy eating crepe, you know what you have to do ;).
