We used to have crepes in our hostel, but we called it love letter. We all loved it. I make this for my family and they also love this.

  • Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Scoop about 1/4 cup batter and pour onto hot skillet. Tilt the pan in a circular motion to evenly distribute the batter. Cook crepe until bottom is lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Loosen with a spatula, flip, and cook the other side, about 2 more minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add more oil to the pan and repeat with remaining batter.

  • Mix coconut, 1 tablespoon white sugar, and cardamom together in a small bowl. Spread 1 to 2 tablespoons of coconut mixture into the center of each crepe; fold crepe over the filling like an envelope or in half.

3.30.16 The crepes are pretty good but I found the filling and flavor of the cardamom almost nonexistent. I definitely would add more to the filling if nothing more than some small pieces of berries blueberries bananas a little cream cheese whatever. There must be some technique involved in folding the crepe into a letter because that was a little tedious for me. In the future I d probably just fold or roll like an ordinary crepe. ravera thanks for sharing a recipe that you used to have in your hostel. Read More

I will definitely make it again, but i couldn't decide the pan size to use. It was very delicious i would recommend this recipe. I only gave this four stars because the filling was not great. I would put about a half cup more milk. For the filing i would recommend putting an eight ounce block of cream cheese and some chopped strawberries beat in with the cardamom and sugar. Read More
