Cinnamon & Brown Sugar Crepe #Recipe

| October 22, 2013 | 47 Comments

For Mother’s Day, my father gave me a crepe pan and a very special spatula that comes in handy for flipping crepes. Of course, with his gift came his famous crepe recipe. When I was a child, I can’t say my dad was much of a cook, but, now that he is retired, he seems to enjoy showing off his expertise in the kitchen. I do remember him making me for breakfast a peanut butter toast spread with butter (how much more fat can you add to a toast!), but was it ever moist and good! Or a toast with butter, sliced bananas sprinkled with white or brown sugar, and sometimes cinnamon. So yummy!

Crepe Pan and spatula

At our house, we usually have toast, eggs, cereal, oatmeal, pancake, or waffle for breakfast, so crepes was a welcome addition to our menu. Now every weekend, my teenage kids want me to prepare them, so we enjoy trying different topping combinations such as strawberries with icing sugar and maple syrup or whipped cream with blueberries.

Gay Lea Cinnamom and Brown Sugar Spreadables- mix

As you may already know, I have been chosen by Mom Central Canada to be an Ambassador for Gay Lea. Gay Lea created a new product that will amaze your taste buds: a Cinnamon & Brown Sugar Spreadable Butter! You can now make cinnamon and brown sugar toast in the morning thanks to this conveniently packaged butter spread. Why not substitute regular butter with this awesome product for making cookies, bars, and cakes? I added the Cinnamon & Brown Sugar Spreadable Butter on the crepes for added flavour , rolled, and topped with icing sugar and maple syrup. I totally loved it! It was mouth watering goodness! If you would like to make the crepe yourself, the recipe is below.
