My mother came to visit awhile back and I wanted to make her a lovely little breakfast…especially since we weren’t able to celebrate Mother’s Day together…I was able to make almost everything the day before so I could enjoy a cup of coffee with her and a sleepy, early morning chat…
Here’s what I put together for her…

Brown Butter + Poppy Seed Crepes
Crepes: Makes 8 Crepes
Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups sifted organic all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon rose salt
2 organic large eggs
2 cups organic whole milk
1 tablespoon organic poppy seeds
2 tablespoons melted + browned, cooled organic butter
Directions:
Melt + brown the butter and allow to cool. To make brown butter, simply allow the butter to simmer for a few minutes after melting, keeping a close eye on the color, and remove from heat immediately once the butter turns a tawny, golden color. Sift the flour and place in a large bowl. Add the salt, eggs, milk, poppy seeds, and butter to the flour. Whisk until smooth. Pour batter through a fine mesh strainer using a rubber spatula. Let batter sit in the fridge for at least an hour or overnight. Lightly butter a non-stick crepe pan and cook each crepe over medium-heat using 1/4 cup batter. Try to make the crepes as thin as you can. Let cook for 1-2 minutes on each side until little golden dots begin to form. Wrap in aluminum foil to keep warm.
