Microwave Deco crepe: Testing my new toy

I love to buy cookbooks, and there are a lot of them by now, haha, but it still makes me happy each time that I get my new book.

Lately, there are a lot of books which come with some pan, equipment etc., for me they are some kinds of toy, not only a book ^^. If you want to start baking something easy you can buy a book with a kit too, I think it's great idea. 
This time I bought レンジで簡単! オリジナル型付き デコ★クレープ作っちゃお!
By Junko. A recipe book with plastic microwavable crepe tray for making small crepe in the microwave. It's so cute, hehe. I followed the method in the book using the tray to make lovely small crepe. It's easy to use but the hardest thing is to get the thickness of the crepe right. When pouring crepe batter into the tray, you have to make sure it cover the pattern and not too thin, but too thick too, or it will take longer to cook. 
You can use the same batter to make crepe in the pan, but with metal pan you can't get the same pattern.
Ps. I have to say that if you heat the crepe too long in the microwave it will taste like rubber, so be careful with it.

    1. I was curious after seeing your beautiful crepes and I just had to try making some today. My hearts were all misshapen as I did not have the proper tools but they turned out ok. I’m now inspired to use this method to create other stuff. Thanks for showing us this recipe. Is the recipe book in dual language? I envy your mastery of foreign languages! :) Lin
