While I love to cook, Andy does most of the cooking around here and he comes up with the yummiest recipes for our family! One our favorites are his pumpkin crepes with cardamom. Cardamom is an aromatic spice from India and it adds a sweet spicy flavor to food (a little like cinnamon) and pairs really well with pumpkin. These crepes are so delicious and are perfect for a warm and cozy fall morning.
2 cups milk
2 T butter
1/2 can of pumpkin
1 t vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour
2 T sugar
1/2 t salt
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/4 t cinnamon
1/4 t nutmeg
1/2 t cloves
1 t cardamom ( keep in mind that a little cardamom goes a long way)
Begin by warming the milk and butter on medium heat until the butter is melted.
Pour mixture into a bowl.
Mix in the eggs, pumpkin and vanilla.
In another bowl, mix the dry ingredients and spices.
Slowly add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until smooth.
Heat a crepe pan or non stick skillet.
Melt a teaspoon of coconut oil.
Pour batter in the pan and twirl or move the pan around until the batter thins out.
Flip and cook the other side.
Serve crepes with your favorite filling or sprinkle with your favorite topping!
