Goat cheese crepes with figs

On Steemit, there’s a weekly cullinary challenge. I joined it in the week where the challenge was to create crepes.

My entry was  a goat cheese crepe with figs (amongst some other things). It was inspired by a pancake restaurant we visited a while ago. Let’s have a look at the recipe! (My images will show half the amount of the ingredients, as I was just cooking this for two.)
