My husband’s go-to breakfast treat is sugar rolls. They’re simple enough to make any day of the week, but they’re also special enough for holidays…like Mother’s Day! Basically, they’re crepes, but “sugar rolls” sounds more fun to the kids. You can fill them with jam, Nutella, apple sauce (my kid’s like blueberry apple sauce) or sprinkle with sugar and devour.
My husband’s original recipe after the jump.
Sugar Rolls Recipe
Cooking time: approximately ten minutes, give or take.
Why my husband likes to cook this: “Flipping the sugar rolls in the pan!” (And I quote.)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
2 tablespoons butter
In a food processor or blender, add and mix the flour, eggs, milk, water, salt and cinnamon.
Heat 1/4 tablespoon of butter in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Pour the batter onto the pan, using approximately 1/4 cup for each sugar roll. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so the batter coats the surface evenly.
Cook the batter for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Loosen from the pan by shaking the pan front to back. Once loose, turn the sugar roll by flipping. Flip a few times to feel like a fancy chef. Cook for 1 minute.
Remove from heat and slide out of pan. Spoon 1/4 cup of apple sauce onto sugar roll and tightly roll. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
