Appelmoes met Crepes

Elsa just started Home Economics this semester.

As per normal, Elsa was pretty hyped up about starting see, I never let her do anything in the kitchen....I have this absolute fear of seeing other people's blood....although I, myself has no problem about my own blood and if I do say myself, have a very high threshold for pain.....

So, for our breakfast, Elsa made us this typical Dutch recipe....

Appelmoes (Applesauce)

3 Granny Smith apples
4 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
1/2 cup water

Pare, core and slice the apples.
In a small saucepan, boil water over medium heat.
Add the sliced apples, cover the pan and reduce the heat to low. Cook until apples turn mushy.
Stir in sugar and cinnamon powder.


1 cup flour
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter, melted

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and the eggs. Gradually add in the milk and water, stirring to combine. Add the salt and butter; beat until smooth.

Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each crepe. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.

Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a spatula, turn and cook the other side. Serve hot.

MamaFaMi -- too much sitting back and relaxing....that's actually my problem!!
