Never mind correction?

Never mind correction?

OK, you know what, I don’t even know!� I double-checked the recipe with Sébastien once I got hold of him and redid all my conversions and it IS 2 cups liquid that he uses.� So…Dee says hers worked fine.� You’ve got to check Dee’s out.

  • We used the 1 cup of milk and 1 cup of beer option (um, because we’re in Germany, and that kinda… made it… more local?) and I worried about it being too liquid, but they were just fine. The cooking and flipping bit was sort of a comedy of errors, as so much of what we do is, but the recipe and your instructions were fab, and we’ll use them again! Thanks, this was fun!

  • I’m very relieved that my original recipe worked. Because, you know, I was beginning to think my future as a famous food blogger was doomed.

    Do you have pictures, alala? That would be cool. Post them on your blog & send me the link, if you do, that would be cool. I’ll do a post with links to all the blogs/pictures Monday. Or email them to me, if you’d rather & it’s okay to post them.

    That is so cool you both did it. Thanks for joining in!

  • Ok, I used the recipe in Joy of Cooking, because it used less milk, because I had to use goat milk because of Vaughan’s allergy, and do you know how much goat milk costs? $13/gallon. I know! Anyway–I have gamely posted pictures of my absolute utter abject failure at making crepes: http://live-learn-knit.blogspot.com/2007/02/in-which-my-lack-of-all-things-french.html

    Laura, I’m betting Sebastien will be completely & totally aghast at these pictures, so please apologize on my behalf, but really, I’m a very good cook. Just–not French things, obviously.

    Still, we had fun. After a fashion! Thanks for the challenge….

  • Right, pictures! Howbout… picture? Because, see, um, the little scoopy-things we used to scoop the crêpe batter out of the bowl and into the pan immediately submerged themselves in the batter, and we had to fish around for them for each crêpe, so our fingers were quite goopy and our digital camera was obviously some kind of diva in a former life and can’t cope with much of anything, in fact I think the warmth in the kitchen was too much for its little psyche because I’d charged it for a whole day and after that one picture the battery was empty.

    Anyway. It is documented here: http://mamalala.wordpress.com/2007/02/03/one-timeless-tradition-solidly-botched/
    … and I forgot to mention that I sent DrBob out for French cider, pear if he could find it, but sadly we are in Germany, and I dunno, you can get Jack Daniels and Glenlivet here, but no cider. No idea why. So he brought back…? Oh, go on, guess.

    Give up? Prosecco. Yeah. Bubbly Italian stuff. Um, sure, it’s, er, almost the same thing.

    Also, we made the half-milk-half-beer variation, and it was good, though that gave the Sniglet his excuse for not even trying them: “I don’t eat beer.”
