Cider Crêpes (French pancakes)

   Next February 2nd, we will celebrate Candlemas in France, if it has been a religious celebration for long but it has been more a culinary event for the past years and we traditionally make and eat crêpes (French flat pancakes). Why crêpes? It is said that they would represent the sun and the light with their circle shape and and golden color.

  Of course, crêpes car be enjoyed all year long, they are one of my favorite dessert and I often make a little batch of a few crêpes for dessert or as a snack when I have a sudden craving.

  Today, this is not a traditional crêpes recipe I propose to you to try but a cider crêpes recipe. Cider often accompany crêpes but you can also add some to the dough, it adds a subtil touch, you should really try it and don't worry, the little alcohol evaporates itself during the cooking of the crêpes.
