Why Choosing a Powder Mix Over On-The-Spot Made Crepes?
Imagine an ordinary fall or winter afternoon. The customers of your coffee shop or bakery seek refuge from the rain inside your outlet, stove their dripping umbrellas somewhere safe, heave a sigh of relief for the cozy warmth they find inside and grab the menu from the table right away to spot the hot, revitalizing drink that can be made in the quickest way possible. A tea, perhaps, or maybe a hot cocoa and even a quick and tasty grilled dessert.
An order comes: chocolate crepes, a classic. In the meantime, the shop is packed and orders keep on piling up. To make crepes from scratch you need at least 20 minutes: first you break the eggs and add milk, then sieve the flour, remove all the clots and put in the fridge to rest, therefore you oil the broiler and start grilling the batter, one crepe at a time; eventually you add the filling and decorations. Sure thing you can cut on preparation time by making the batter in advance, but you’d be all the same taking precious time away from other preparations – possibly even the ones that are most frequently ordered in your coffee shop or bakery.
And what about ingredients, in particular the fresh ones, such as eggs? Can you afford having them available all the time? The concept of powder mixes for crepes is indeed life-changing because you can use a limited amount of product based on your needs and most of all cut on preparation time. The moment the order is made, you know you will need just a few minutes to prepare the dessert your clients want and bring it to their table with a smile on your face: just the time to oil and heat up the broiler, pour the batter on it and wait until it browns.
