Frisuelos/Spanish-Austrias Style Crepes

This week's posts are going to be Crepes, yes i picked Crepes for all time as theme for this week's blogging marathon. Crepes, these thin pastry are usually made with flour and eggs, however many versions do exists either by making with buckwheat flour (as galettes in French) or else flavored by spices or fruit peels. My today's post is a Spanish style crepes which is called Frisuelos and this crepes have their origin from Austrias and Leon, the northern regions of Spain. This crepes is a typical Spanish crepes which is flavored with lemon rinds and alcohol like cognac, rum or brandy.

Adding lemon rinds or orange rinds with alcohol to a usual crepe batter makes this Frisuelos. Since my kids love crepes very much i simply skipped the alcohol here and went with lemon rinds. If you want to prepare the typical Frisuelos dont forget to add a tablespoon of liqueur in your batter. However this crepes sounds as much as like French crepes with usual ingredients. Kids enjoyed thoroughly with their favourite nutella while i had mine with honey.
