Crepe Batter Yields A Flat Cake With A Russian Spin And A Rival For Bagels

June 6, 2012: 10:57 AM EST
Russian immigrants in Brooklyn, N.Y. have adapted an old family recipe to create a thin, flat cake that is a cross between a crepe and a blintz, is a hit in N.Y. city public schools and is a growing rival for bagels. More than two million "crepinis," made from French crepe batter and ingredients such as beef and mushrooms, have been sold in city schools since 2010. The entrepreneurs turn out 6,000 crepinis an hour in their factory, and have been shipping as far away as Texas and Canada. Despite its growing popularity, the crepini is unlikely to displace the bagel in the hearts of New Yorkers, industry experts say, but it does offer an interesting and healthy alternative.
