Gaiman Crepes

Just finished "The Ocean At The End of the Lane" by Neil Gaiman. In addition to his amazing ability to unite the fantastical with the every day life, Neil cooks! The recipe below is one deliciously described in the story for "Lemon Crepes… with a Bushwick Nutrition Twist." 

Mix the following ingredients and leave the mixture in the fridge overnight. Make sure there are no lumps. 

  • 1 cup of all purpose flour 
  • a pinch of salt 
  • 2 eggs (free range) 
  • 1 1/2 cups of milk (organic!) 
  • 1 cup of water 
  • 1 tbsp of melted butter 

Once you are ready to cook (ideally on a lazy Saturday or Sunday morning), grease or butter a nonstick frying pan. Heat it until it’s really hot. Make sure to stir the mixture to get an even consistency.

It’s been an English weekend.
Fish and chips yesterday, and English pancakes with fresh squeezed lemon juice and and sugar for this morning’s breakfast.
These are a special treat that was homemade by @1ill510’s mama.
They’re thicker than French crepes, and made without sugar.
To eat, squeeze the fresh lemon all over it and sprinkle sugar on top then roll it up and enjoy. #englishpancake #lemonpancakes
