 Afridelight Crepes

 

Ingredients

1 cup Afridelight flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/4 t. salt
1/4 cup honey
3 1/2 cups milk
4 eggs

Direction

Cook on one side for 3 minutes before carefully flipping (crepe will be very thin – this takes some practice) to finish cooking 1 minute more. (I tend to use 2 pans to speed up the cooking process; otherwise you’re standing over the stove for an hour).
– Stacking crepes on a plate until you’re done cooking will keep them hot so that everyone can eat together for a change!
– Top or fill with fresh berries, powdered sugar and honey, whipped cream, bananas and chocolate sauce or nuetella, the possibilities are endless!

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp Dry Active Yeast
  • 1 cup & 2 tbsp Warm Water
  • 1/3 cup Canola Oil
  • 1/4 cup Raw Cane Sugar (unrefined sugar, but you can use normal sugar if you want)

Instructions

  1. Dissolve the yeast in warm water. Add oil and sugar. Let stand for 5 minutes; the mixture will look bubbly.
  2. Mix in egg, salt, and flour to the yeast mixture. You will form a soft and slightly sticky dough.
  3. Let dough sit for 5 minutes.
  4. On a very well floured surface knead the dough until smooth. Continue to add flour as necessary to avoid the dough from sticking to your hands or the surface (you may feel like it is a lot of flour – I use about 1/2 cup). Kneading takes roughly 5 minutes.
  5. Divide the dough into ten buns – you may need to flour your hands for this. Place on baking sheet with approximately one and a half inches between buns.
  6. Cover and let rest for 15 minutes. Buns will grow but not double in size. In the meantime, preheat oven to 425°.
