BLUE CORN CREPES
These light, delicate crepes are wonderful for burritos and other fillings. The batter best if allowed to rest for at least an hour before baking
Yield: 12 crepes
3/4 cup flour
¼ cup blue corn flour or meal
¼ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cumin
¾ cup water
2/3 cup milk
3 eggs, beaten with a whisk
2 Tablespoons melted sweet (unsalted) butter
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
- Measure the dry ingredients, taking care to spoon the flour gently into the measuring cup before leveling. Place in a medium-sized bowl. Combine the liquid ingredients and stir into the flours until mixed. Do not beat. Add the butter and set aside.
- Heat a 6- to 8-inch heavy skillet over medium heat. Brush with the oil. A drop of batter should sizzle when hot enough. Using a ¼-cup measure or 4-ounce ladle, place a scant ladleful of batter in the hot skillet only when needed.
Keep the crepes warm by placing in a cloth or crock until serving.
