How to make it

  • Crepes
  • Combine flour, sugar (if using) and salt in a mixing bowl.
  • Make a well in center, break in eggs, then add extra yolks
  • Add half the milk and gradually work into the flour with a whisk
  • Beat lightly and smoothly, but do not over-mix.
  • Add remaining milk gradually, whisking gently until will combined
  • Transfer to a batter-bowl or pitcher, cover loosely and leave in cool place for 30 minutes
  • Stir 1/4 C melted butter into batter before using
  • Lightly brush a small frying pan (6 in) or crepe pan with a little of the remaining butter and heat until hot.
  • Holding pan, pour in about 1/4 C of batter and tilt from side to side so batter runs into a thin, even layer across bottom of pan
  • Place over moderate heat and cook about 1 minute or until crepe is brown around the edges and begins to curl away from pan
  • Slide a palette knife or thin spatula under the crepe and flip it over; cook for an additional minute. Turn out onto wire rack lined with a clean tea towel and parchment, fold towel over crepe to keep moist,
  • Cook remaining batter, stacking crepes between sheets of parchment until all batter is used. Can be frozen; thaw before separating

    This recipe is now a staple in my kitchen. So versatile!! I love them with blackberries and a little sour cream. Try adding a little cinnamon to the batter and serve with cooked apples and caramel. You can also add some finely chopped pecans just after you pour the batter in the pan. Fill these with strawberries and bananas and top with wipped cream and a little shaved dark chocolate. Use your imagination, the possibilities are limitless!!

    Thanks Pat. Have to say I love crepes but have always been afraid to make them at home. Maybe because they seem to thin and delicate. Think I will try though.
