Easy Sweet or Savoury Crepe Recipe - Martina's Midnight Munchies

Simon and Martina

195 миӊ. көрүүлөр17

    Making crepes is a comfort food that I've been practicing since I was in high school. Being 50% Croatian, crepes known as palačinke (pah-lah-CHEEN-keh) have been a normal non-threatening snack I'm used to making. You don't need anything fancy, just a non-stick pan and some wrist-swirling practice. Give it a shot! Even if they end up looking wonky or end up a little think...they still TASTE delicious!
    Have fun~ xoxo Martina
    Easy Crepe Recipe (from Alton Brown)
    2 large eggs
    3/4 cup milk
    1/2 cup water
    3 tablespoons melted butter
    1 cup flour
    Oil for brushing the pan
    1. Add all the wet ingredients (except the melted butter) to a blender and pulse one or two times. Add the melted butter and pulse once more.
    2. Add the flour by heaping spoonful so it doesn't lump and blend for 8-10 seconds. Don't overdo the blending or the crepes will be rubbery. It's okay if there are a few little lumps in the batter, resist the urge to keep blending or whisking the sh*t out of that batter.
    4. Put the batter in the fridge to come together. 30 minute minimum. If you rest it overnight and it seems reeeally thick, you can add a touch of water and whisk to thin it out.
    5. Heat a non-stick frying pan on medium-medium hot. Be prepared to brush with oil between each crepe.
    HOT TIP: Drop a little tester batter onto the oiled pan and if it burns or puffs up into a rippled looking tent shape the pan is way too hot.
    6. Oil the pan, pour about 1/4 cup of batter into the centre of the pan while swirling the pan to spread the batter out into a thin circle. If it is a weird shape...that's okay :)
    HOT TIP: If the batter slides and crumples up into the corners of your pan while swirling, you added too much oil to the pan.
    7. Once the batter stops moving, it is cooking. You have to wait about 45 seconds and the edges will start to peel and look crispy. You can lift the edges with your spatula and peek underneath the crepe to see if it looks super pale or if it's a light golden. Golden = you're golden to flip!
    8. Flip DAT SH*T!~ Oh yeah. You pro. As it cooks on the other side you can add toppings if you want them to melt. I like my cheese melty and my sugar all melty too, but you can make a stack of crepes and just build them later.
    Cook that crepe for another 30-45 seconds and once it is golden on both sides you're done!
    Doing all sweet crepes? Consider adding a 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract or a smaaall squirt of honey/agave to the batter.
    Savoury crepes? 1/4 tsp of salt or dried herb of your choice, rosemary is very nice.

      All I can think about now is where did she buy the tiny Calcifer and frying pan figurine because I need it in my life!

      1. Simon and Martina

        I bought it at the Studio Ghibli museum in Japan, but I wonder if you can get it online?

    2. Alicia Molloy

      I kinda wished there was a clip of her mom "not" noticing the new kitchen creatures

    3. Sam Manalili

      Martina needs to bedazzle her wrist support so she can literally say she has diamonds on her wrist

    4. ZachTalk

      I love the Kirby tea towel!

    5. alexilass

      SHOUT OUT TO ALTON BROWN!!! Good Eats was the BEST.

    6. Samigiri XP

      When Martina gets the measuring cup stuck in the jar 😭😭 something I would do 👀💦😂

    7. Amanda Bissaro

      I love your videos Martina! So happy to have something comforting to watch during these trying times. I hope they bring you joy to make! Can't wait for your store to open. ☺

    8. TetsuosDespair

      Hello Simon and Martina, I hope you’re doing well in Ca-Nadia 😊! Sad to see you guys leave Japan but totally understand the unselfish reasons why, gotta be there for our loved ones! I was wanting to make a suggestion for some future videos, you guys have probably covered some of this before here and there if I recall so apologies if I’m missing any of your videos that might already exist. You guys are kind of traveling and living internal pros now so I was hopeful MHW maybe 🤔 you could make some long form tutorial videos on traveling to and from Japan 🇯🇵 in a more perhaps dry, logistical sense. If not no worries, plenty of sources out there but I think you guys have a much more real and open way of sharing what’s what about real life than many others. Thank you!

    9. Antonette Untalan

      I miss watching you two together.. Please be okey.. (why do most couple youtubers I've been following are either separated or divorced? 😣)

    10. Riquezmann

      For a moment I got scared and thought Martina went "normal" when I saw this kitchen... @1:22 phew! She's done a bit of her magic >_

    11. Kimberley Gray


    12. Ana Oli

      Are they separated?

    13. jane jones

      Moving to Toronto hopefully in a month. How are things there? People panicking much?

    14. Majo Salas Calderón

      Hello Martina! Thank you for sharing. Can I use this recipe for the square crepes that have an egg in the middle? With ham and cheese?

      1. Majo Salas Calderón

        @Simon and Martina thank you so much! I am making these for my Mom tomorrow ☺️ best daughter on the making thanks to u 😗

      2. Simon and Martina

        Oh absolutely you can! When you flip the crêpe over, let it cook a little longer to get it crispier if you want a firmer crêpe to support the weight of an egg + toppings

    15. Monica S

      You have Brazilian Chocotone in Canada!!!

    16. Heidi Kamil

      Hey guys, can you guys make gyoza??? 😃✨

    17. Paul H

      Nice, hope y'all are ok. Just discovered the channel, and have been binge-watching the Japan content.

    18. Sophia Hearn

      I hate speculating because I know that you both want your space. I have a feeling that something happened oversees and they moved back to Canada so they could stay separate with their respective families. It makes me very sad. Simon doesn’t look well. Maybe there was a mental struggle. Maybe there wasn’t. But in the end I hope that you find a way to be happy. It’s odd to see a relationship that lasted over a decade crumble in front of everyone.

      1. Firefly

        Simon did mentioned something about caretaker burnout or something?

    19. Jolene Jellybean

      These look awesome! I’ll have to try making some now (•̀ᴗ•́)و

    20. some_donkus

      This video made me genuinely happy to watch. Just seeing you back on camera with your cute little cat ears and positive attitude really was amazing. Cheers to Alton Brown (have you seen his recent twitter stuff, it's amazing, he's even MORE my hero now than before). Perfectly made crepes. I also loved you explaining how everything was in English and French, I didn't know that at all, I will keep that in mind. I hope that your wrists weren't too messed up after filming. I hope things are going as well as they can. Love to your family, Simon, Meemz, and your new little floof (whos name i just can't remember right now). PS I was SO STOKED when I saw you setting up the fairy garden stuff. I recently watched the video of you cleaning the little figures with my roomie, it was like ASMR cozy vibes hehe. I can't wait to see how the garden grows!

    21. Gwen Stacy

      Ive fallen back to the first step of my ladder as of recent but seeing this video show up in my feed gave me the boost of happiness to start climbing again ❤ thank you Martina for your contagious happiness and courage

      1. Staci

        I hope your days seem brighter soon.

    22. muji

      its great to see Martina looking happy again. but i wonder who is taking care of her now instead of Simon?

    23. Spiralqueen

      Love you girl!

    24. Madame Mean

      Are Simon and Martina not together anymore? Im so confused. I stop watching their vids for like a year and it all looks so....different, strange, lonely Dx. Can someone please explain ?!?

      1. Shay

        They've said that things are difficult right now and on instagram said they don't know what's going to happen. I would recommend watching their Canada videos to get an idea of all that's changed for them.

    25. abraxys82

      I missed videos like this. Korea, Japan, or Canada, we watch it for moments like this.

    26. JJ TO

      Your shirt is mad cute

    27. Monica Bowers

      We have something similar in USA where almost everything is in spanish and English, I was remembering my high school french a little when I crossed the Canadian border, cute

    28. Busan Duoluv

      I love your videos (big fan, but different account, since 2011) and I have missed visiting your channel. I'm baaaaack [creepy Poltergeist girl voice].... you're welcome!

    29. Catherine H

      I've always wanted to learn to make crepes, Martina's got my back!

    30. ElskaBa

      I missed midnight munchies!!!

    31. it's raining cats and dogs

      Obeying dots on the ground, please turn on your Brains... 🙄

    32. poopoostainsonmyballs

      I finally found them, it’s been so long ever since I watched their videos😂

    33. Joana Marie Ballera

      Hey Martina! Do you know, Rachel Maksy? I feel like you have the same creative energy and spunk!

    34. neojng

      This is far more wholesome that simons midlife crisis.

    35. lazy onigiri

      I love you martina

    36. Just Just

      Martina my hubby has such a screencrush on you! 🤗 He said you just keep getting more and more beautiful. And I super agree!!! Aren’t people supposed to get weirder looking as they age? But not Martina. - - No matter how much you do the Godzilla Rawr to go against your cuteness we are like NO, you still cute, girl. But we still love the Godzilla Rawr and encourage it for future vids.

    37. C Mars

      Martina!! How is your ladder building going lately?

      1. C Mars

        @Simon and Martina Glad to hear that you're still building! :) That's the most important part :) I had to build a big one today, and I went back and watched your video for some inspiration. Thank you again you beautiful human!

      2. Simon and Martina

        Oh it’s off an on 🤔 I really enjoyed baking lately, but it really put me in a long extra bad painday afterwards for like, 3 to 5 days 😑 so I fell a few rungs, but I’m heading back up now!

    38. Seda Aydin

      Crepes are one of my favorite things to enjoy for breakfast and they are really super easy to make!

    39. ChookyChuu

      I’m so happy to have midnight munchies back! It is what inspired me to start cooking and truely is a therapy for me. These are my daily build a ladders! Thank you Martina!

    40. Unknown Universe

      happy time :p

    41. CarolinaCirilo

      Are Martina and Simon still together?

    42. Mateusz Kania

      Please make pierogis/ maultaschen

    43. Brandi Allen

      could you make maple glazed doughnuts? I have so so missed midnight munchies.

    44. William Branley

      Ahhh.... The glass of wine..... it is an essential to all my daily activities! No.... seriously.......its essential.

    45. J Whitten

      Rachel’s butter tarts....best of Ontario

    46. MrsInAbox

      Everyone knows the first pancake or crepe is sacrificial to the pancake gods

    47. MM MA

      coldemort.....im stealing this

    48. KitsuneAdorable

      Did Martina just refer to the Human Malware as Coldmort? (As in Voldemort) because if that’s true I like it. Better to find a way ‘round the ridiculous censoring that KGup has been doing lately.

    49. Things what i like

      Did they break up?

    50. Claire Xue

      did your friends still look at you weird from you saying funny hunny

    51. gabethenoob

      I have no mom, she died 25 years ago today.

    52. Niro Sugar

      If you ever need to talk, Martina. I'd be happy to lend an ear. Something in this video just made me feel a tiny bit sad. It touched something without really trying. Love you lady!

    53. Lionelle Richie

      why does Martina live with her mom and not have her own car and Simon lives in a fancy and expensive high rise apartment??

    54. kiaros

      Martina that was so cute the way you talked to yourself in french and Japanese we could almost believe you were cooking in a restaurant.

    55. Ed F

      Does anyone know where I can get the mini calcifer pan?!?! I love that little mini

    56. Alexandra Schiessl-Moore

      Gotta disagree on pie vs cake simply because cake decorating is so fun and Swiss meringue buttercream is delicious. I love a good layer cake. That said fall pies (pecan, butternut squash, apple) are my favorite kinds of pies! (I may also be salty that I can’t make a pie crust without boogering it somehow)

      1. Alexandra Schiessl-Moore

        Also are there any very Canadian desserts you could make? I’d love to see those!

    57. Ash

      idk why but i just started crying when i saw the little spudgy doll

    58. maya ibrahim

      Is it just me or Simon and Martina both don’t have their rings on...?

      1. maya ibrahim

        @Karlee that’s true, it’s just an observation. I just hope they’re doing okay

      2. Karlee

        Not our business sweetie. Lets respect their privacy. ❤

    59. Lady Bird

      Wow you actually look a lot healthier after you've moved back from Japan. I'll miss all your awesome Japan vids but I'm so happy to see you looking more vibrant

    60. Monus Brewer

      Great video! 😋

    61. Diddi HY

      Missed u ❤️ more videos please 🤓❤️

    62. lightweaver 18

      Not sure what I would like to see cooked. Do you have any faves to recreate specific to Canada?

    63. TeaforTinka

      I've been looking forward to another MMM since you announced you're in Canada, so excited to see more!

    64. Omega Wau

      Martina!!!! I didn't get the recommendation for this video TT_TT I missed you.

    65. Ari823

      Martina, didn't you tell us a story way way waaayyyy back when, when you worked at the bread place and the knife was so sharp you cut your finger in one swipe?

      1. Simon and Martina

        Yup. That was the deli! They sharpened the dull knives without telling us and I put my full force into cutting a bagel (bc the knives were always dull) and sliced neatly through my pinky finger. Cut the artery and nerves and knicked the bone. Full anime style blood squirting. Never got the feeling back in my pinky but the scarred tissue somehow hurts like hell!

    66. PlumRose Dharma

      Martina, do you believe in Faeries? Im gonna make this with my husband and give some to the Faeries! I just gotta make a new garden for them. It recently got destroyed from a storm. Would I be able to send you some awesome plants?? I am not sure because you may get to it late

    67. Annee Nguyen

      On days when I feel like crying from my own joint issues, I watch Martina for some ladder building inspiration. Thanks for the decade of love and ladder building, Martina and Simon!

    68. Michigan Girl

      I use jelly in mine! SO good!!!

    69. Lisa Shaughnessy

      I made the crepes and they turned out fantastic!

    70. Kyle Hewitt

      Blender cup for the blend tech, or cheap blender to aerate the wine? 😁

    71. BlaqMiss

      dearest Martina, the content you create makes me so genuinely happy! i hope that the joy you bring to your viewers comes back to you, but million times bigger. take care! loooots of love! ❤️

    72. Emily Fundling

      8:45 Video: "Add the butter" Me: "Don't breathe this!"

    73. Joseph McFarland

      Hey Martina LOVED the video!!! Have you or Simon kept in contact with Dan at all? How’s he doing? ❤️

    74. EH CBunny

      Jean Girard: 'I will let you go, Ricky. But first, I want you to say..."I... love... crepes."' Cal Naughton Jr.: 'Don't you say it, Ricky. These colors don't run.' Ricky Bobby: 'I'm not gonna say it.' Jean Girard: 'But you have forced me to do this. You are now mocking me and making me look ridiculous. Just say, "I love crepes."' Cal Naughton Jr.: 'You know, just to put this in there, I had a whole mess of crepes this morning. They're just like pancakes, maybe even better.' Ricky Bobby: 'Wait, are they the really thin pancakes?'

    75. Ram J. Sta. Ana

      filipino foods maybe hehehehehe

    76. Missnewbienoob

      I've not laughed this hard in a long time. The measuring cup vs the coffee jar. OMG, I was going to stop to take a breath, but you kept going. Too funny! Great content!

    77. unaanguila

      Thanks for sharing.

    78. Unitedly Random

      Pies are best

    79. pebblegosling

    84. ciele

    85. Mortessa

      OMG "fromidable" is the best translation of cheese-tastic. It's better, actually.

    86. SqueegyBex

      I was having a rough, kinda sad day and this way just the ray of sunshine I needed. Thank you! 🙂

    87. sassy4u

      Omg I haven’t seen you guys in a loooooong time

    88. Requiem4Mora

      Surprised at the amount of plastic your store uses.

    89. Onigiree

      Martina's Midnight Munchies is back, all is right in the wooooorld. Atleast for these 20 minutes 😅💕 I wonder what you would've cooked had this started in Korea. (Other than ramyeon lol)

      1. Simon and Martina

        Oh man! I made a bunch of Korean Midnight Munchies! Ddakgalbi (my faaav), odang, tofu pudding, coconut oil chocolate... and then I did Korean Dashi, Deenddang jjigae... a bunch are on the bonus channel and otherwise might be a recipe playlist below 🤔 haha geez I didn’t realize how many cooking shows I’ve done

    90. Pink Planets

      Love you Martina!! Your midnight munchies brighten my day!

      1. Pink Planets

        @Simon and Martina like an old English man saying "Here, son" 😂

      2. Simon and Martina

        That’s wonderful to hear 👂☀️ (that reads as ear-sun 😂)

    91. Tokyotart

      Martina I can see through that damn ham. It's shaved. Come to US asking for shaved you'll get a block of spam. We gives no fucks.

    92. Lajolly Roger

      Pie is and will forever always be superior to cake.

    93. sir reginald pixelpants

      I just made crepes! Your recipe, as usual, was so easy to follow. Seriously fool proof!! Thank you, Martina!! ❤️

    94. Thomas Miranda

      Martina always makes me smile. That's all I can say. Thank you Martina for being awesome. Saludos desde Panamá.

    100. Brieokie B

      I LOVE crepes but s*ck at making them. I'm definitely going to try them your way. Love your videos, they make me happy. I understand you are doing your best to put these videos out here for us. It is greatly appreciated. I know things are absolute sh*t right now and posting may not always be what you want to do. It does sadden me to see you and Simon posting separate videos but putting yourselves out their regardless is appreciated and I still love you both. You guys are like long distant friends to me (which is probably creepy but true) and I only wish the best for you both.
