Coffee Crepe Cups – Part 2

Hello,

Let’s start making Coffee Crepe Cups. Before I start making them let’s talk about crepes. The word crepe is French for pancake and is derived from the Latin crispus meaning “curled”.

Crepes originated around the 12 century in Brittany, a region in the northwest of France. Crêpes are also common in other European nations, such as Italy, Poland, Romania, and Denmark, although they are known under different names.

In areas of Eastern Europe, the meal is called palacinka (Serbian,Czech, Slovenian). In Danish, it is Pandekage and in Dutch it is pannekoeken. There are two types of crepes:

  • Sweet
  • Savory

Now that we have a basic knowledge of crepes we can start making them.

This is my favorite recipe and it is the best one you can find on the Internet. I made million version of this recipe but today it is my coffee version.

(Does it look like Cappuccino?)
