The Background Story
A less eggy crepe

Crepes (crépes in French) also known as "French pancakes" are simply thin pancakes. They can be used in many ways - as a shell for blintzes (belinis) or as wrapping for croquettes (breaded Polish blintzes - pronounced "croquetteh"), as a desert or even, the way we like it, as an elegant breakfast dish.

This crepe is a little less eggy (and with just a bit more flour by proportion) than our other crepe recipe. This one was the way my grandmother made them for Cheese Blintzes (also known as Blintze blintz, blin; plurals blintzes, blini, blinchiki, blynai and others).

Of course, there is the most famous of the crepe dishes, the "crépes Suzette" is a delightful crepe, fired in alcohol ... based on orange - usually containing some Grand Marnier and a bit of orange zest.
