Instructions
  • In the pitcher of a blender, add eggs, beer and cream, mixing to combine. Add butter, salt, coriander and flours. Mix on high for 20 seconds to make a thin batter. This can be made ahead of time and refrigerated or used immediately.
  • To make the crêpes, use a nonstick sauté pan over medium heat. Add 1 teaspoon of butter; once melted, add 1 ounce of batter using a ladle. Rotate the pan off the heat to completely coat the bottom of the pan in a thin layer. Place the pan back on the heat and cook for 45 – 60 seconds, until the top of the crêpe is lightly dry and cooked. Flip the crêpe and cook for 15 seconds more. Repeat with remaining batter. Once cool, stack the crêpes and wrap in plastic wrap. Place in the refrigerator for 2 – 3 days or freeze for up to 2 months.
