French Breakfast Crepes
(5 servings) Printable Version
Melt 1 Tablespoon of shortening in a pan over moderately high heat. When shortening begins to smoke, it's time to add the batter. Place 2 serving spoons of batter in a circular direction. Using the back of the spoon, quickly spread the batter to cover the bottom of your pan (cast iron pans work best) and fill any holes.
Flip when underside browns and sides begin to curl. Brown this side and serve immediately. Repeat with rest of batter. Garnish with fresh fruit and serve with warm maple syrup. This makes about 10 crepes. 2 crepes make a nice serving.
You don't have to be some kind of fancy-pants to enjoy a good crepe. This recipe makes it easy.

Needed more water. They are more like pancakes than crepes otherwise. I added 1/4 to a 1/3 cup water and that helped.

Batter is too thick for crepes, they came out more like pancakes.

Good recipe with tweaking. I had to add about 2 1/2 cups water to it to thin it out otherwise they just looked like thick pancakes.

I needed to add about 2 Tablespoons of milk more than the recipe says and I also added two drops o vanilla for more flavor, but they turned out very good... light.

Maybe I screwed up but when I made this recipe the "crepes" puffed up almost as much as pancakes instead of cooking into proper, paper-thin crepes as I know them. Tasted good though.

I'm french and grew up eating lots of crepes! I've tried many different recipes, and although nothing compares to family recipes, this is the best one so far. I use it often!
Delicious, light crepes!
