This week, I was gently reminded by my dad that it is Масленица (Maslenitsa) this week! I know what you are all thinking: “Say whaaa…?”

It’s a big holiday that is celebrated in Russia (and some other Slavic countries) at the end of winter. It’s a holiday to  celebrate the end of winter and welcoming spring. (There is more to it but I’m a bit fuzzy on the details.) I remember it going on for a week and ending with the big festival. I also remember everyone making crepes as a traditional dish for celebrating. There is lots of singing, dancing, festivities and finally, burning the straw lady mascot figure in a bonfire.

Like I said, crepes are a big part of this celebration. So in theme with this week, I made crepes and decided to round up other crepe recipes from the blogland! I am also sharing my main crepe recipe with you, as well as, some other crepes, I’ve made.

Crepes Recipe
 
Ingredients
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 eggs
  • ⅔ cup milk
  • ¼ cup veggie oil
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbs sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2-3 cups of boiling water*
  • Consistency should be like melted ice cream!!
Instructions
  1. Rub the pan with oil but don't pour the oil. Preheat the pan on medium high heat. If using a newer non stick pan, you may not need to grease the pan but if you will be using a regular pan, you will need to rub the pan with oil before every crape. (You can pour some oil on a piece of paper towel.)
  2. Combine flour, eggs, milk, oil, salt, sugar and baking soda. Whisk all well.
  3. Slowly, start adding ¼ cup of the hot water at a time to the batter. Whisking constantly until the batter reaches the consistency of melted ice cream.
  4. Pour about half a ladle into the hot pan and swirl slowly.
  5. Cook for a few seconds on each side.
