The cooking :
- Heat a lightly oiled nonstick skillet. Once hot, pour a ladle of batter into it and swirl it around to spread it over the entire surface. Place on the heat and when the edge of the crepe turns light brown, it's time to turn it over.
- As the pancakes are cooked, place them on a plate and cover them with aluminum foil to keep them warm.
- For dressing, fold the crepe in four and add a few pistils of saffron, no need to add sugar, the saffron syrup is enough.
