Sometimes I like to indulge in my five-year-old imagination and think about what the world would be like if I could control the way things worked.
Working weeks would last 2 days and weekends would last 5 days (for the same amount of pay, obviously), it would be mandatory to eat at least 5 pieces of chocolate a day to maintain a healthy diet and the hair fairy would stop by everyone’s house in the morning to ensure a fabulous hair day every day.
I would also jump out of bed super-early every morning just raring to make a breakfast like this.
We only eat breakfast on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and I usually plan what we’re having a couple of days before. Except when I wake up on Friday all ready to make chocolate chip pancakes, I inevitably want poached egg on toast or a croissant. So I usually end up making both, just in case I change my mind again as soon as I sit down to eat, which is usually the case.
So I really eat breakfast six days a week. Or at least I eat almost a week’s worth of breakfasts in three days. The first sentence sounds much better, less embarrassing and is the one I’m rolling with.
The sweet, juicy strawberries and tangy Greek yogurt work wonderfully alongside the buttery, vanilla crepes in this recipe. And in my perfect world, you’d jump out of bed super-early tomorrow to make them….for me.
Vanilla Crepes with Strawberries and Vanilla Greek Yogurt
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
¾ cup milk
½ cup flour
Sweet Vanilla Greek Yogurt
½ cup Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon powdered sugar
1 tablespoon sugar
1. For the crepes, whisk together the sugar, egg vanilla and milk. Stir in the flour and salt. Heat a small amount of butter in a frying pan and pour about 1/3 cup of the crepe mixture in, making sure to spread it all over the pan. Cook on each side for 30 seconds to 1 minute or until golden brown. When cooked, fold in half and in half again. Keep warm in the oven until ready to serve.
2. For the sweet vanilla Greek yogurt, whisk together the yogurt, vanilla and powdered sugar.
3. For the sweet strawberries, place the strawberries in a small frying pan over a medium heat. Sprinkle the sugar on top and leave to simmer until the strawberries are soft and the juices are released – about 5-10 minutes.
Serve the crepes with a few strawberries and a drizzling of sweet vanilla Greek yogurt.
Happy Friday! I hope you guys have a fantastic weekend J
