The story of the Crepe

France is considered the first homeland of Crepe cakes . Hundreds of years ago, most of the European countries lived mainly on wheat cultivation. The vast wheat fields are similar to those in Asian countries. This makes most of the Western cakes, especially the Crepe , are made from wheat flour. With the popularity of rich nutrients, cheap price .... wheat is the main dish of every European meal. 
The first batch of Crepe was made entirely from rye flour so the bread was dark and not very eye-catching, rye Crepe at this time only appeared in poor farmers' families because they had low price. Later, when the life of the French people became more complete and improved, white flour appeared and completely replaced rye flour to create slices of Crepe that were more delicious, whiter and more beautiful. Since then Crepe has gradually become popular not only among the upper nobility but also ordinary families also use this cake as a dessert. The deliciousness and appeal of the Crepe cakes gradually spread and developed throughout Europe.
