Let’s Review the March Baking Challenge

March 2020 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: Homemade Crepes

What a blessing to spread the baking joy this past month! Though there wasn’t any baking involved, I know cooking homemade crepes brought smiles to many homes this past month– especially during a difficult time where we could all use a little extra joy. Many of you had never made crepes before and were pleasantly surprised by their ease! What I loved most about this particular challenge was that you had full creative control for topping, filling, and serving your crepes. Some of my favorites included a bananas foster variation, eggs and hollandaise, a Boston cream pie inspired crepe complete with pastry cream, and salted caramel blackberry crepes. So creative!!

One of my favorite recipe reviews came from reader Betsy:

“Amazing…that’s how my crepes turned out. This was my first time making crepes and Sally’s recipe and directions were so helpful! I watched the video first which helped me create the perfect crepe! I had left over custard and filled the crepes with custard, strawberries and blueberries. Yum!”

We gathered as many homemade crepes photo entries as we could and included them below. (Email is the best way to help guarantee your photo will be included!)

  1. Congratulations on winning, Becky! And well done to all who participated – so many beautiful crepes there 🙂
    Glad you’re keeping your blog going during these difficult times, Sally….provides a bit of welcome distraction when stuck inside 😉 Make sure to keep safe and healthy! Especially for Kevin, Noelle and your little bun in the oven❤

    1. So many beautiful crepes!! Thank you for your kind words, Gemma- I hope you stay safe and healthy, too 🙂

  2. Pizza flatbread looks delicious, and I’m sure we’re all grateful for the simplicity of the recipe considering how last-minute grocery store runs aren’t much of an option any longer. Although I have to admit, despite the fact that this pandemic has severely hampered my social life, it’s also cut down my busyness so much that I actually have time to really indulge in my hobbies; baking and writing, as well as catching up on some reading (bookworm baker). And I think we need to remember that this virus can’t cancell everything, though it seems like it can. It can’t cancel sunshine, laughter, joy, family, prayer…the most important things aren’t so much physical as they are emotional, and it can be entirely too easy to forget that. Praying constantly for you and your (growing!) family, Sally; pups included, of course! 🙂

    1. Agreed! I appreciate your positive outlook, Erin! Thrilled you’ve had more time to enjoy writing, reading, and baking 🙂

  3. Having known your blog for just over a month now (and so in LOVE with it), and having gotten your ‘IRRESISTIBLE COOKIES, CUPCAKES & DESSERTS FOR YOUR SWEET-TOOTH FIX’ book, I must say I’m looking forward to making more, if not all, of your recipes. Thank you for the exciting challenges and for creating an engaging blog.

    1. I’m so happy you found my website and thank you for ordering my cookbook! Thrilled to have you here 🙂 Enjoy perusing my recipes and giving them a try!

  4. I can’t wait to try your Flatbread Pizza, your dough looks nice and thin. I just tried another Flatbread Pizza recipe and although we liked it, the dough was thicker than we thought it would be.
    I made your Homemade Artesian bread Sunday, my husband loved it! The crust was nice and soft but had a crispness to it that we like.
    Thank you Sally!

    1. I’m thrilled you’re going to give my flatbread recipe a try, Marilyn! So glad your husband enjoyed the artisan bread 🙂 Thanks for your positive feedback!

  5. Thank you yet again, dear Sally! And I strongly second what Erin said above. We just lost a family member to (she lived in Spain) and I can assure you that joyful work like yours does not in any way make light of the crisis—instead, you *bring* light to the crisis. A very deep and heartfelt thank-you.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words, Laurie. I’m so sorry for your family’s loss- thinking of you during this difficult time.

  6. Wow Sally, so many beautiful & delicious crepes!
    Di

    1. I agree! 🙂

  7. Yeast is sold out everywhere around here but my dad owns a bakery and I’ve been getting my supplies from him. We will sell it so call your local bakers if you can’t find it!

    1. Great idea, Holly!

  8. I live in Egypt can I still join the challenge and have a chance to win ??

    1. Open to the world! 🙂

  9. Hey Sally, just wanted to check in and say hi and maybe bring a smile to your face today. I’m fully recovered and today is my first day out of isolation; I’m one of the fortunate ones that did not get very sick. You know what I missed most during my isolation period? Baking!!!!!!! Although I still want to be overly cautious and wait a bit before cooking for anyone, you can bet that the first thing that goes in my oven will be one of your recipes! Really want to make some goodies for the ER department where my son works and the local PD. BTW, one night last week my kids asked what I wanted for dinner, and I requested your mini quiches- they were yummy! Thinking of you and your family, stay well, and when anxiety starts creeping in, think/redirect your mind to all of the joy/good you’re spreading in the world! Take care, Sally.

    1. Lisa, I am so very happy you are fully recovered! Yay for baking therapy! I’m glad you enjoyed the mini quiches and can’t wait to hear what your first bakes are 🙂

  10. Can’t wait to do my first challenge. Love your blog!

    1. So happy you’ll be participating in your first baking challenge, Grace!

  11. This recipe was so easy to make. Hardest part was waiting 45 minutes for the dough to rise. Our pizzas actually required less than 15 min in the oven. I think our oven heats up higher than it actually is set at. We usually buy store bought pizza dough so it was fun making this on our own. We will try your pizza dough recipe next!

  12. Hi Sally. My daughter-in-law made the flat bread pizza. So easy to handle, and really tasty. Thank you for sharing such lovely recipes.

  13. Colleen CABANAW says:

    Kids and I had a great time making these today. Was alittle tricky to find yeast in my town but finally found some in the next town over.

  14. Grace Catherine says:

    I made the flatbread, and it came out quite good. I added herbs and cheese to it. It was a bit salty, but I still liked the texture a lot.

  15. Maria in NJ says:

    Hi Sally loved the recipe, i have to say i was a little concerned at first cause the dough was a little dry and seemed like it needed more water, but i went with it and it was great! My family really enjoyed it!

  16. Liz Martens says:

    Your flat bread dough recipe is fantastic! My son says this is his new favorite pizza! Nice, thin crust with a crunch, but not too hard and crispy! We will definitely make this again!

  17. Delicious recipe! My dough stretching needs some work but it still tasted great. I went with goat cheese, apple, red onion, arugula and honey as my toppings.

  18. Lisa Sarpolis says:

    I loved making flatbreads this month! We need more so each family member could top their own and we all loved them!
