Crepes with Ricotta & orange juice

Recipes by chefkreso

Crepe is a French word for a pancake, and since I was a kid, the meaning of pancakes here in Croatia was a thin one with strawberry jam or Nutella spread. Later by watching TV shows and movies the thick American pancake was introduced to me, but I always loved those thin ones a bit more.

So I’ll be talking about crepes in this recipe and an interesting fact is that the first ones made were made from buckwheat, while the white flour crepes were prepared later in history due to high price of white flour compared to buckwheat. Even though it’s not February 2nd or Jour des crêpes – famous French holiday when you eat crepes, I prepare them every now and then, and it wasn’t long since I posted the delicious Mille crepe blueberry cake recipe (you can check it out below).
