Better than Paris Crepes

Better than Paris Crepes

My love of food and cooking has always been with me, but didn’t really blossom until I went away to college and had to cook for myself. At first, I’d eat out a lot {hello freshman 15 25} but then I started copying my Mom’s recipes to have copies in my recipe box so those semesters away, I could make good food. Crepes was at the top of this list.

When I made them for the first time in my Sophomore year for myself {and by default for my roommates too} one of my roommates and best friends, Amy, insisted these were the best crepes she had ever had. She was the one who deemed these better than Paris crepes because she had just spent a semester studying abroad in Europe.

Surely she has been mistaken I thought. There is no possible way these could be better than the crepes you get is Paris. It’s PARIS.

But then I went to Paris last Fall and tried them for myself and by golly, I think she was right.

I tried to avoid posting this recipe for a few weeks because I always like adding lots of dessert recipes to my blog much closer to Christmas. But, somehow, I couldn’t NOT post it because its one if the easiest and tastiest cakes I’ve made in a while.

I took some help from the store by using a cake mix to speed things up {because the holidays mean a lot less time spent in the kitchen…at least it does for me!} but if you wanted to make this from scratch, you could definitely use my Double Vanilla Sour Cream Cupcake recipe, swirled with the butter-cinnamon mixture and baked the same way as described below in the recipe.

Incase you were wondering, this cake is the bomb dot com. It’s filled with lots of sweet and buttery crevices that are drizzled and filled with icing. SO good!!
