No recipe image available.An excellent recipe for making basic, plain crêpes. Use these versatile, thin French pancakes with both savory and sweet fillings.

Recipe Ingredients:

2 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter, melted

Cooking Directions:

  1. In a medium bowl; whisk together the eggs, milk and water; add the flour and salt and mix well. Whisk in the butter, stirring until batter is smooth.
  2. Refrigerate batter at least an hour.
  3. To bake crêpes; on medium-high heat, heat buttered, 8 or 10-inch pan until just hot enough to sizzle a drop of water. For each crêpe, pour scant 1/4 cup batter in pan, lift and tilt skillet to spread the batter. Cook until lightly browned on bottom; remove from pan, or, if desired, turn and brown other side.
  4. Fill each crêpe with desired filling. To store; you may stack your crêpes between sheets of waxed paper until ready to use.

Makes about 8 crêpes. Recipe can be doubled.
