Apple Cinnamon Crepes

Today I'm going to share Ben's amazing Apple Cinnamon Crepe recipe. 
Ben and I are both big breakfast fans and on the weekends when we have more time, we like to get creative with our meals. This past week we haven't had classes for finals studying, so we've been cooking up some really great meals on our very small budget. Crepes are especially great because there are so many variations to this recipe and you can fill them with just anything! We had some great granny smiths in the fridge, so we went with apple cinnamon this time. 

These crepes are so delicious and easy to make. Just looking at the pictures makes me want to whip up another batch. But here they are!

Crepe Recipe 
1 cup of flour
2 eggs
1 1/4 cups milk
1/4 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
2 tablespoons butter, melted

If you're making these by hand, place all the ingredients into a mixing bowl and whisk vigorously. Use a rubber spatula to get any remaining flour off the sides of the bowl and whisk until smooth. 

If you're using a blender, place all the ingredients into a blender and mix on high. Use a rubber spatula to scrape down the sides and pulse until smooth. 

Lightly grease the frying pan with butter and heat over medium-high heat. Pour just slightly less than 1/4 cups of batter onto the pan and swirl to coat the whole surface of the pan. Crepes should be done in about 30-45 seconds, or when the edges just start to lift up off the pan.

Apple Filling
2-3 medium sized apples
3 tablespoons of butter
1/4 cup of sugar
1/4 cup of brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons of water
1 1/2 teaspoons of cornstarch

Peel (or not if you want the added nutrients of the skin!) core, and finely chop the apples. Heat the frying pan on medium-high heat and add butter, the apples and sugar when butter is melted, cooking until the apples are soft and slightly translucent. 

Reduce heat and add brown sugar and cinnamon, stirring to incorporate. Mix together water and cornstarch in a separate bowl, then add to apple mixture stirring constantly until thickened. 

Add to the crepes and enjoy!
