Here is my selection of Candlemas recipes which is fast approaching!
I think it’s one of the culinary times of the year that I really like and that does me a lot of good. After the end-of-year holidays I tend to make much lighter meals and these holidays allow us to add a little indulgence!
You will tell me, we still had the king cakes throughout the month of January… 😉
You will therefore find below my selection of recipes for crepes, pancakes and pancakes as well as my best recipes for fillings for your sweet crepes as well as some ideas for your savory crepes…
I have a little question ! Do you prefer to fold your pancakes into a triangle or roll them?
For my part I tend to roll it, but depending on the filling one will be more practical than the other depending on whether it tends to leak…
Candlemas Recipes: Crêpes and toppings
My recipes for crepes, pancakes and pancakes
1. Best French Crepes Recipe
This recipe is my favorite, it’s so simple to make and absolutely foolproof. You can serve it for both sweet and savory recipes. And if you use it for dessert, I like to add a few drops of rum which delicately flavors the dough.
2. Homemade Pancake Recipe
With this recipe you will get very soft pancakes that will be to die for with a good maple syrup.
