This recipe was sent to me by my friend Jessica. (Or Jes-ka! as I call her!) It totally fits my definition of a Glamping Recipe.
In Jessica’s Words
I doubled the batch to feed six people (and had a stack of leftovers as you can see in the picture, ha!).
I totally made the batter in the blender the night before we left and then filled a water bottle with the mix. Two mornings later it was perfect crepe-ing. (It was two mornings because our other friends couldn’t join us until the second night we were there).
They brought mimosa stuff and we cut up strawberries and fruits and had nutella…. nom nom.
Almost too decadent for camping. Almost.
Blended all ingredients in blender and funneled it into the water bottle. They cooked very well on the stove with a spray of Pam, I was impressed..
- 1 cup all-purpose 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.
What Is Glamping?
Are you familiar with the term glamping? It’s “glamour camping” where you might be in a tent but it has a Persian rug and you’re served with fine china. Typically, you would pay a LOT for these camping “adventures”.
Anybody who knows me knows that glamping just wouldn’t be in the style of The Outdoor Princess; I’m more of a get dirty kind of girl. But, that doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t bring a bit of glamping to some camp cooking!
The difference between a glamping camp cooking recipe and a normal recipe would be that you might need exotic ingredients or more specialized equipment. And the final bit to take it from ordinary camp cooking to GLAMPING camp cooking? It has to be a to-die for recipe!
