I know there are a load of you who know how to do crêpes (French-thinner-pancakes) courtesy of Wikipedia…

A crêpe or crepe (Listeni/kreɪp/[1] or /krɛp/ French: [kʁɛp] ( listen), Quebec French: [kʁaɪ̯p] ( listen)) is a type of very thin pancake, usually made from wheat flour (crêpes de Froment) or buckwheat flour (galettes). The word is of French origin, deriving from the Latin crispa, meaning “curled”. While crêpes are often associated with Brittany, a region in the northwest of France, their consumption is widespread in France, Belgium, Quebec and many parts of Europe and North Africa. Crêpes are served with a variety of fillings, from the most simple with only sugar to flambéed crêpes Suzette or elaborate savoury galettes.

But as it’s a simplified recipe I have adjusted to my dietary needs as, no-sugar-eggs-dairy… I thought this one might be of some help to those who follow the same organic wholesome food plan but for those who don’t, just switch back to sugar, plain flour or any oil you have 🙂
You can’t get anything easier or faster & it’s a load of fun to do with your kids or grand-kids so… here you go!

Method
——

Mix well the two first ingredients & add baking powder just before putting it in pan, mix very well too.
Heat frying pan (I have an old small one but it’s the only one I know how to work with for my pancakes)
put a heaped teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil (but you can use any available) put your (small) flame
on high first then switch to between-high & low after about 4 minutes, pour a small ladle of batter slowly
(once the oil is hot you should hear it sizzling as it touches the pan) while swiveling the pan to even it
out then wait about a minute (you’ll get the feel of how long with the time) flip it over with a fork or
as a chef would do with a swift hand-motion then once it’s ready slide it on a plate.

I chose this time to serve it as a snack with rice syrup spread on it, rolled it & poured a little on too,
but I have served it in many different ways in the past as with minced seitan (vegetarian meat) as a filling
& creamed mushrooms as the topping or with a creamy wok as a filling… but all you have to do is use your creativity & improvise anything you desire as ice cream on the side with whipping creme & chocolate syrup on top of the pancake…

I hope the photos will make the instructions easier but mainly, have a load of fun & Bon appétit!

Simple & easy party treat idea!


©copyright2013owpp

©copyright2013owpp

This is the most simple, fast and decorative party snack. All you have to do is melt on a VERY LOW fire, some naturally sweetened chocolate or the regular for those who take sugar with a spoon of oil (the one of your choice) stir all along and once all melted, take off the fire and dip the washed strawberry in, put on a tray and after two minutes literally, store in the fridge and you are done!
If the chocolate hardens while you are working, put it back on the most extremely low fire you can till all melts again, take off fire and continue dipping.
You could use a Bain-Marie to melt it but it’ll then take a bit longer. Oh! Last thing… I felt more comfortable dipping the larger part of the strawberry as I had more grip (my two fingers! Well washed obviously 🙂 )on the pointy side but the first two or three were trials and far from perfect.
I’m sure a lot of you know this trick but I had not thought about it until someone close gave me the idea. I thought it was brilliant and wanted to share it with you, hoping it might help someone out there like me 🙂
Let me know if I am right and the best of luck!

Monte Carlo ” adapted ” easy biscuit recipe 100% natural!

Hi everyone!

This recipe is, as the tittle specifies, adapted.
Meaning, I transfer it to my ” natural-sugar-language ” which is quite intricate, to say the least 🙂
It needs a lot of perseverance, stubbornness and space for trial and error.
It took me three batches to get to it, but some prefer the first, which had the disadvantage of loosing
it’s shape in the oven ( the pyramid fell but it was crunchier ) so, I’ll give you the two recipes.

P.S There’s no coconut in, for the coconut sensitive, no margarine or butter only oil which does less,
long term damage. I got good feedback from my family but let me know, your comments are important!

This is the first batch recipe, it is crunchier but flat.
The recipe has just a slight difference in the quantities,
nevertheless, it has own specific distinction.

Chocolate, raisins ( or carob ) sugar free yeast dough roll recipe


©copyright2013owpp

©copyright2013owpp


This recipe is not one of my easiest ( I had to let the dough rise ) but it’s nourishing, it’s a good
unsweetened chocolate roll for recess at school or at work. All in all, I’d say it’s
a recipe worth doing every once in a while.
I use the bread machine on dough program, to mix it and let it rise. It’s quicker, but you can do it
the ” longer “Way 🙂 the only difference with the machine is, that it requires dried yeast.

Enjoy the experience!

You can improvise any filling you want ( eg. sliced apples ) I did part of it with, cinnamon, poppy seeds, rice malt and oil.
Then the last roll I put cocoa, rice malt, oil and raisins.

Put in oven at 150 Degrees Celsius = 302 Degrees Fahrenheit, check after twenty minutes ( I always prefer to be safe than sorry 🙂 )
This time after 30 minutes I cut the roll in two to make sure it wasn’t raw inside.

Enjoy doing it and let me know your results!

Hi everyone!

This is the easiest and cheapest recipe ever.
Enjoy, try it out if you feel like it and let me know.

Easiest bread Pie recipe
————————

Ingredients
—————

1.   One loaf of dry bread ( the one of your liking )

2.   1 1/2 packet of raisins ( 250 gm = 8.8 ounces, is the amount per packet(!)

3.   4-5-6 Tbsp approx. ( big spoons, the more for the ones who prefer more oil in there food ) of olive or any kind of oil

4.   4 very big apples ( cut in rough slices or more if you want it very sweet )

5.   A fat sprinkle of cinnamon

6.   1-2-3 cups of rolled oats ( depending on how starchy you want it )

7.   1/2 liter = 17.64 ounces boiling water, add more if too sticky but I doubt it. It has to be soft and a bit loose.

That’s about it!

Method

———-

Throw everything in a big bowl, add boiling water on top of it all, mix and wait 5-10 mn so the bread and other ingredients

become soft, mix again until you get a homogeneous consistency, pour in a covered with baking paper baking tin,  the size in

the  ” Apple cake/Multi-User  recipe ”  ( it is always going to be the same utensils ) flatten it with a spoon and slide in the oven at the usual

heat of 170 Degrees Celsius = 338 Degrees Fahrenheit for about 45 mn but if you want more or less crusty you’ll have to check

a bit before.

Enjoy it warm of cold to take at work or to the park!
