Heat the vegetable oil in a large frying pan. Spoon the crepe mixture into the heated oil in small heaps. Allow about 30 seconds for the crepes to cook, then turn and cook briefly on the other side. Continue cooking the crepes in batches until all the batter is used up. Arrange the crepes on a serving plate and top each one with a spoonful of creme fraiche or heavy cream.

Your photos are beiufatul, Ann. Every time you post about food I think of CJ talking about how food is a sacrament...and how weird and uptight I was in those days about not eating anything that wasn't explicitly designed to prevent cancer. He made an impact with his passionate and earnest response to my rigidity and helped me soften my approach a little. So many good things come from food :) xoxo
