Crepes - perfect for hosting brunch!

Crepes are easy, but a lot of people shy away from them. Here is my recipe - I swear it's easy!


4 eggs

1 cup flour

1 cup milk (we use skim milk)

2 tbsp melted butter

1/2 tsp salt


(sweet only): also add 2 tbsp sugar and 1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp salt


1. Mix eggs, milk, melted butter. Then mix in the rest of the ingredients (the mix doesn't have to be completely homogeneous, mine always has chunks). Keep it in the fridge for 1 hr - overnight.

2. Use medium heat to heat a small non-stick pan, add just a little bit of pam. When the pan is hot, lift it about 3 inches from the burner and add 1/8 cup of batter and quickly move the batter throughout the surface of the pan. Place on burner until batter is dark yellow and edges are crispy (about 30 seconds on my oven, you should begin to see a spider-web patterns). Flip over (you can usually pick it up by the crispy end) and cook for about 10 sec.
