Pumpkin Crepes with Whole Wheat

Makes: 20-ish large crepes (truthfully I always lose count--all that crepe flipping)

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 30 minutes flipping crepes

Cost: $1.35

eggs: .10, milk: .60, pumpkin: .15, flour: .20, whole wheat flour: .20 


Whip together:


4 eggs

3 C milk

1/4 C pumpkin


Add (and whisk in): 


2 Tbsp sugar

2 C flour

1 C whole wheat flour (I used white whole wheat)

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt


Whisk in:


1 C milk

1 tsp vanilla (optional, but I love it)


Heat skillet on medium heat. 


Spread a large (I think a 12-inch) skillet with a generous amount of butter. Pour about 1/2 C batter into pan and tilt the pan around so that your batter spreads out in a thin circle (or circle-like shape). It should be quite thin, but not paper thin or anything--a couple millimeters tops. 


Allow it to cook so that there is just a touch of not-quite-cooked batter at the center. Then flip it and let it cook another 30-60 seconds more. 


Put it on a plate. For some law of cosmic whateverlyness, the first crepe always comes out a little funny. Don't worry; you're second one will be better. 


Add more butter, pour more batter and keep going. 


When you're done, top it however you like, roll it up, and eat it.
