Turkish Pancakes (Krep)
1 ½ cup all purpose flour
2 cups milk
1 tsp salt
¼ tsp baking soda
1 cup oil (for cooking)
In a bowl mix all the ingredients (except oil) with a mixer until the mixture becomes smooth and even. Leave the mixture in the fridge for 2 hours for a better taste.
Use a large Tefal pan to cook the pancakes. Put the pan on a high-medium heat and let it become hot for 2-3 minutes. Then put approximately 1tsp of oil (shallow fry) and pour the mixture with a ladle. You can adjust the amount as you like (see the picture).
When you see the bubbles on the sides you can turn the pancake upside down. You will see it will change to golden brown color. Then, when you cook both sides, it’s done. Continue adding 1 tsp oil and cooking all the pancakes.
You can use cream cheese, jams or jellies, tomato paste, olive paste, honey or whatever you like to spread on the pancakes. Then roll them up and serve warm (see the picture).
Turkish pancakes are good to go at breakfasts.
P.S: Contains Gluten, Milk
