How To Host A Crêpe Party: Entertaining For The Busy Woman

Pin It Now!

The only recipe you'll need for a French themed party.  Crêpes are thin pancakes prepared with flour, eggs, milk and a pinch of salt.  They are incredibly easy to prepare and popular throughout France.  Your guests will be stunned by the air of calmness as they step into your home.  They will long for the female personality, who with at the same time as looking elegant, can also whip up a tasty and chic dinner in less than 30 minutes.


Recipe (after a purple makeover)
2 eggs
275ml semi-skimmed milk
130g self-raising flour
pinch of salt

This recipe makes 6 very large thin crêpes .

Beat the eggs and milk together.  Add the flour in 3 parts, with a pinch of salt and mix well.  The batter is now ready.  Next, pour a large spoonful of this batter over a very hot non-stick pan.  If needed, add a very thin scraping of butter to your pan before adding the batter.  Turn the pan so that you have the batter spreading over your pan in a lovely round shape.  Flip the pancake over once it is golden brown and add your favourite toppings.  

Smoked Salmon & Spinach
Try smoked salmon, a teaspoon of reduced fat creme fraiche and a generous helping of fresh baby spinach.  Yummy!

Smoked Ham, Mushroom & Tomato
Add a slice of ham, mushroom and tomato slices, fold the crêpe and serve immediately.


The Purple girl does too and there was no escaping it being surrounded by three French people in the house.  The dessert is leaning towards a 'heavy' perspective, so thank god it's Tuesday running club tomorrow!

Toppings: fresh strawberries, Nutella OR strawberries with cinnamon sugar.  Another alternative is a sprinkling of golden raisins.  The more adventurous also added creme fraiche, definitely not recommended!  

Tip: When making the batter for your sweet crêpe, add a teaspoon of granulated sugar if desired.  

Your crêpe party will be successful, but remember to slot in exercise the next day.
