How To Make A Basic Crepe
(4 servings) Printable Version
If you have a crepe maker, you probably know what to do next. If you're not so lucky...
Heat a griddle or frying pan to medium. Give it a very light spray of cooking oil. Drop the crepe mixture onto the heated surface. Using about a 1/4 cup of batter for each crepe. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly. "Thin is in" when it comes to the layer of batter.
Cook each side until the golden brown brown (about 2 minutes for side one -- batter will bubble; and 1 minute for side 2). Gently remove and place on a plate. Place waxed paper between cooked crepes to prevent sticking.
This will make 8 crepes. 2 crepes make a serving.
One recipe and you can make a thousand different kinds of crepes. Use any filling or topping you can imagine. This is just a good basic, go-to crepe recipe.

Try with lemon juice and sugar (not too much of each), then roll up and eat. Great for breakfast... English style!

Experiment: I added a heaping teaspoon of chopped fresh thyme and basil to the batter so they would be savory and then I filled them with cheesy scrambled eggs. Results: Success!

I've made this three times now! I'm finally getting perfect crepes each time. The trick is to tilt and turn the pan as you add the batter. I start with a 1/4 cup measuring cup, but usually only use about 3/4 of that. Stop adding batter when the bottom is coated and the crepes turn out each time. The amount of batter really depends on the size of your pan.

Add 2 teaspoons sugar and 2 drops vanilla to the batter. Served with sliced strawberries and Nutella. Absolutely amazing! Thanks!
