How to Make Gateau de Crepes a la Florentine

  • Place all the wet ingredients in the blender, add the dry ingredients, and blend until it gets mixed, no more than a minute.
  • Scrape down any flour stuck to the sides and blend again for a few seconds until it gets properly mixed.
  • Refrigerate for two hours.
  • To make crepes, heat a crepe pan or a 5- or 6-inch cast-iron skillet.
  • Brush it very lightly with oil.
  • When the pan starts to smoke a little, take it off the stove with one hand, and pour 1/4 cup of the batter in the centre.
  • Very quickly, tilt the pan around so the batter spreads thinly and evenly and coats the bottom of the pan.
  • In about 60 seconds, you should see the edges beginning to brown a little.
  • Gently, with a spatula, lift to see if golden-brown spots have appeared.
  • If they have, flip over the crepe and heat on the other side for about 20-30 seconds.
  • Remove the crepe to a rack to cool.
  • Repeat with the remaining batter.
  • You should get around 24 crepes from the batter.
