~Frankie & Johnny...Week-End

Happy Valentine's Week-end to all. This week-end I bring you a sweet romantic movie about 2 chances for love.

You never choose love. Love chooses you.

Johnny has just been released from prison, and gets a job in a cafe beside waitress Frankie. Frankie is a bit of a loner, but Johnny is determined their romance will blossom.

Served with Hot Fudge & Johnny Crepes...

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes


  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 6 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


Whisk all the ingredients vigorously until the crepe batter is completely smooth; allow it to rest in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes before making into crepes.

Melt a little butter in a crepe pan or large skillet over low-medium heat. Add 3 tablespoons of batter to the pan and swirl until the bottom of the pan is covered with batter. Cook the crepe for 1 minute, or until the crepe is slightly moist on top and golden underneath. Loosen the edges of the crepe, slide the spatula under it, and then gently flip it upside down into the pan. Cook for 1 minute and transfer the cooked crepe to a plate to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining batter.
