RED VELVET CREPES AND THE GOODNESS
recipe from: Taste and Tell
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 tablespoons sifted cocoa powder
2 cups buttermilk
1 1/4 cups milk
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons red food coloring
2 tablespoons butter, melted
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder. Mix well; set aside.
In another large bowl, combine the buttermilk, milk, egg, vanilla, sugar, red food coloring and melted butter. Whisk until smooth.
Combine the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients. Stir until smooth.
Heat an 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat.
When the skillet is hot, ladle a small amount of the batter into the pan. I found for my pan, the perfect amount was just under 1/4 cup of batter. Lifting the pan off of the heat, swirl the batter around the bottom of the pan, coating the whole bottom of the pan. You want it to be as thin as possible, while coating the whole pan. Return to the heat and cook until the batter has lost it’s shine, then flip and cook on the opposite side. Remove from the pan and keep warm in an oven set to 200°F. Repeat with the remaining batter.
The Goodness Filling
8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup cool whip
In a bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Beat in the powdered sugar and cool whip.
2 ounces chocolate chips
2 1/2 tablespoons cream
Place the chocolate chips in a bowl. In a separate bowl, heat the cream in the microwave until boiling. Pour over the chocolate chips and let sit for a couple of mintues. Stir together until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth.
Assemble the crepes:
Fill each crepe with a bit of the Goodness. Roll up, sift powdered sugar on top, and then drizzle on chocolate.
