Canada Day Food: Maple Leaf Shaped crepes.
While I browsing Pinterest for Canada Day Food ideas, I found that most of the recipes had a lot of sugar and required quite some time in the kitchen. Since the kids are on vacation, the cooking time is scarce. I had to find a healthy and quick recipe. So I came up with this idea: how about a maple leaf shaped crepe?
- Homemade crepes. I usually this basic batter crepe recipe or this whole grain crepe recipe. (cost around $3).
- Raspberry and Strawberry for decoration. I bought this beautiful basket from the farmer’s market for $5. I did not use it all for this Canada Day recipe though.
- Maple Leaf shaped cookie cutter. I bought one for $0.99
- Mini Canadian flag for decoration. I bought a pack of 20 for $0.99
- Optional: Maple syrup
- Prepare your crepes: I usually have crepes in my fridge. Kids love them for breakfast. If you are making the crepes, make sure to let them cool off before using the cookie cutter to make the maple leafs.
- Display the crepes on a nice plate.
- Top with raspberries and use the Canadian flag a a toothpick.
- For extra sweetness, you can top with some maple syrup. I did not do it as I don’t want my friends to have sticky hands!
