I have a weakness for any thing flour made (pizza, bread, roti prata (my cheat meals), pancakes, waffles, and the list goes on...), thank god for the existence of wholewheat flour, my life has changed so much since then. When I was young I would stuff myself with 2 big bowls of white rice every night (because grandma's cooking was way too yummy, heh), then followed by a supper, what a chubby fatty I was! I don't deny I'm still not in shape and all, but at least I feel healthier and I can see the changes in my body with the changes I have made to my eating habits and exercise routines.
So, back to crepes. Made from such easy and basic ingredients, you probably won't be needing a to of time weighing the ingredients out; the only time will be spent by the frying pan, flipping one crepe after another.... depends on how many are you making of course :p I usually make for myself so there isn't much problem.
Also much thanks to the power of social media these days, recipes can be attained right at your finger tips. I followed many clean recipe accounts and also home-makers that make really amazing food, and recipes are all included. Kudos to them! I
