  • 1/4 cup raisins

To Make Homemade Crepes:

- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup low-fat milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 Tablespoons melted butter

Whisk the flour and the eggs together in a large mixing bowl. Slowly stir in the milk and the water. Add the salt and butter, and beat the mixture until smooth.

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.

Cook each side until the golden brown brown (about 2 minutes for side one - batter will bubble; and 1 minute for the other side). Gently remove and place on a plate. Place waxed paper between cooked crepes to prevent sticking.

This will make 8 crepes. 2 crepes per serving.

You can use a cup of apple sauce if you don't want to mess with pureeing an apple. The crepe recipe here works with any topping of filling.
