Soon it will be the candlemas, I am like a child. Candlemas isn’t just a day when we eat crepe but the birth of my daughter : Julie. So I am dedicating her those mini crepe that we are gonna eat together.
On the day of the birth, I watched the time, the moments when I was still in condition. Arrived at 20h in the hospital, I wondered if she would be among us the 1st as her great grandmother or the 2 for candlemas day !
For several months, we have a newcomer in the family (in addition to Julie). Our sourdough that I nicknamed Alfred. It seems that when you speak to your sourdough, he becomes more cooperative. So I told myself that if I gave him a name, it would be much easier to talk to him! On the other hand, this yeast must be fed, so much so that I found myself with quantities not possible and all that even by making a pizza dough a week. And yes every Sunday night, it’s pizza night at home :)! A girlfriend told me that maybe I could use the surplus to make pancakes and here we are with this recipe of mini-crepes or sourdough pancakes!
