Ingredients

  • 1.5 c Milk we use 1%, you can use what you prefer
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1/4 c Butter melted and cooled
  • 1 c Flour AP
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Salt

Sweet Crepes

  • 1 tsp Vanilla

Instructions

  1. In a blender combine the milk, flour, sugar, salt, eggs and half of the butter and blend until smooth. If you don't have a blender you can use a stand mixer with whisk attachment. Let batter rest at room temperature for at least 15 minutes before using.
  2. You can make the batter a day in advance and just transfer to a sealed container, keep it in the fridge until you are ready to make the crepes.
  3. Heat a small nonstick pan over medium heat.
  4. Using a silicone pastry brush lightly brush pan with some of the remaining melted butter.
  5. Add batter using a ladle (about half full) and swirl the skillet so the batter completely covers the bottom.
  6. Cook 2 to 3 minutes and then loosen the edge of the crepe with a rubber spatula, then with your fingertips, flip crepe and continue to cook for 1 minute.
  7. Slide the crepe out of the skillet and repeat with the remaining batter, coating the skillet with butter as you need (do not over butter or your crepes will fry and be oily)
