“There are several "Fabulous" recipes that originated from various parts of "Italy". This particular recipe for "Scapel Soup" originated from the Northern part of Italy in which the cooking is a bit different from areas such as Rome and Sicily. This recipe is special and was handed down to me from at least 4 prior generations. Scapel Soup is not popular in the US mainly because it is time consuming t prepare and many people don't know of it's existance. But still the same it is "Exquisite". I have never met anyone whom doesn't like this homemade recipe.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Using a wisk and large metal mixing bowl, take 2 eggs and wisk eggs gently into the 1-1/2 cups of water, wisk together for about 30 seconds until well blended.
  2. Next, wisk in your flour and mix for about another 30 seconds.
  3. Add about a tablespoon or two of butter to heated fry pan, add about a ladle full of your prepared Scapel batter until it covers most of frypan, cook each side for about a minute and a half.
  4. Place cooked scapel on large dish, sprinkle about a tablespoon of grated cheese on Scapel and roll like a crepe, place aside to cool. You do not need toothpicks, Scapels should stick so cheese stays inside.
  5. Scapels should be served in a soup bowl with Collagen broth or homemade chicken broth. About 3 Scapels per bowl of soup enjoy!
