Crepes

This post is a product of three things: 1) my 5-year old requesting crepes for breakfast 2) the realization that I didn´t have crepes on my blog combined with months and months since my last post 3) it´s Sunday 🙂

I got the recipe from my baby sister when she was about six or seven. No joke. And it is the best crepes recipe I have ever tried! Simple, easy to remember and the first crepe never breaks. That´s close to a miracle in the crepe-making world. At least in mine. They taste really good, and the consistency is the perfect combination of light and moist, sweet and salty. And the best part – they work just as good for breakfast as they do for dinner or an evening meal.

Knekkebrød / The crisp bread: A Scandinavian staple

Knekkebrød, or crisp bread, is said to be over a thousand years old and was one of the foods accompanying the Vikings on their raids. Today it serves as a quick, tasty and healthy breakfast or a between-meals snack. For many, many years I have eaten Wasa´s various crisp breads. It didn´t occur to me that I could bake my own until my mom started baking crisp breads. My family is addicted, so my mom bakes a batch just about every weekend, lasting the entire week. Last weekend I was home, baking with her. 🙂

Good news: you will need few ingredients and the crisp breads almost make themselves. A tiny bit of effort that will be rewarded for the rest of the week.

There must be as many waffle recipes as there are Norwegian grandmothers, but this one has got to be the best 😉
