Today, an easy but delicious recipe: crêpes for lunch, from the book of Julia Child - Mastering the Art of French cooking volume 1. A variation to the Dutch Pannenkoek, thinner though, whereas it becomes a lighter dish and is very delicious in summer.
The only thing you have to keep in mind with this recipe is to cool for two hours before using it. So make it early in the morning, when you want to eat this for lunch. And you can also prepare the crêpes a little bit for lunch and keeping them warm on a plate which stands above a pan with simmering water.
