Easy, Simple Pancakes Suzette

They say that every idea in the world isn’t original. As much as I will like to disagree with that statement, there’s truth to it. Cliches are cliche for a reason. At each corner of the streets, and around the world we are surrounded by people, nature that sparks our inspirations. Thus we can’t help create our version of our inspiration. This time around, I’m bringing a recipe that brings a little french in our lives.

IMG_9372Despite my impressions of Paris, it hasn’t tinted my desire to try their meal, escargot and now Crepes Suzette. Though their version is in a crepe version, my admiration for American-style pancakes enabled me to incorporate a different twist. In the world of Spice Girls, spice up your life. For those unaware with ways to make American-style pancakes, I’ll share the recipes then proceed to achieve the ultimate Crepes Suzette recipe. Bon appetite mon ami(e)

Whisk egg, milk and vanilla extract together until mixed well. Then in a bowl, add the flour, baking powder and sugar, mix well.
Then combine the egg, milk and vanilla mixture into the flour mixture. Whisk well until no lumps or bits are left.
Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat, add a knob of butter until it melts and adds a ladle of batter. The batter should rise in a thick form, turn over when the top of pancakes bubble, and flip the other side until golden. Repeat steps until no more batter is left.

The Sauce.
