Crepes

Following the Meyer lemon cake, I had leftover lemon curd. So I decided to make breakfast with it.

Crepes Filled with Meyer Lemon Curd, Mascarpone Cheese and Kiwiberries

It was my first time making crepes, and it was not as hard as I had thought it would be. Thought not papery thin, my crepes turned out fine. I paired it with tangy lemon curd, mascarpone cream (to cut through the sourness of the lemon curd), and some kiwiberries that were in season. The colours are really summer-ish and cheerful isn't it? Serve to people who actually love and appreciate lemony stuff (which sad to say, does not encompass my family). If not, you can always fill the crepes with sweet options such as jam or nutella.

The Sis is not a fan of crepes (or pancakes in general), so I don't think I'll be making these much at home (*Cue sad face) unless I'm hosting a brunch at home or something. Sigh. And I was looking forward to making chocolate crepes with nutella and berries. Or crepes with berry sauce. Or crepes suzette. There goes my endless crepes possibilities...

(makes about 11 crepes)

Crepes
110g AP flour
2 tbsp icing sugar, sifted
1 1/2 cup whole milk
1/3 cup egg whites (about 2)
1 whole egg
1 tsp vegetable oil

Place all of the ingredients in a bowl and whisk lightly till ingredients are just combined.
Grease and heat a non-stick pan.
When pan is hot, ladle about 1/4 cup crepe batter into the pan, swirling lightly to make the crepe as thin as possible.
Cook for one or two minutes, flip over to the other side and continue cooking for another one minute or until light golden brown.
Repeat with the rest of the crepe batter.

Kiwiberries, halved

Spread a thin layer of mascarpone cream onto a crepe, followed by lemon curd.
Top with kiwiberries. Fold the sides of the crepe inwards.
Repeat with rest of the crepes.
