Crepes
Credit: Jo Cooks

1 cup Flour
2 lg Eggs
2 tsp Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 tsp Salt
2 cups Milk
1 tbsp Melted Butter
Oil for Frying

• Combine Flour, Sugar, Salt, Milk, Vanilla Extract, Butter, and 2 lg Eggs, in a large mixing bowl, mix together really well, then let stand for a few minutes.
• Heat a non-stick frying pan with oil, or spray generously with cooking spray.
(“It is very important that the pan is very hot.”- We cooked it at a lower temp). SEE NOTES.
• Use a ladle and scoop ¾ of the crepe mixture, into the pan, rotate the pan, to cover the entire pan with the crepe mixture. (If use bigger pan, use more crepe mixture then mentioned.)
• Leave the crepe to cook, until you see the edges of the crepe starting to brown a little bit.  (“Leave about 1 to 2 min per side.” – Lower temp, we cooked each side approx 5 minutes) You will know the crepe is done on one side because you will be able to slide it around the pan easily. Flip it over. SEE NOTES.
• Repeat steps until you’ve used all the crepe batter.
• When you’re done use your favorite topping as desired – butter, syrup, whip cream, berries, jam, peanut butter, lime, sugar, etc. Then roll the crepe.
• Serve/Enjoy.

MenuDuet’s Notes: In the picture displayed;

-We cooked our crepes at a lower temperature, then turned it up, (6 – HIGH) first crepe burned because the pan was too hot. (Had it on HIGH to start)
– Since we turned the heat down, we cooked it a bit longer then suggested, also, sometimes I would hold down a spot, (the middle mostly) if it was forming an air pocket, because that area seemed doughy if I didn’t.
-Make sure your butter is melted or you will get chunks, (in your batter), no matter how long you whip it for.
-For our toppings; we used strawberries and whip cream, (on top, and in center of the crepes) with maple syrup drizzled over it all.

The last time I enjoyed a crepe was over 5 years ago, and I definitely wanted to eat them again, so when I brought it up to my partner that, I wanted to do crepes next, he quickly agreed, choosing our topping right away.
Problem was, I wasn’t sure how to make a crepe, so with a little help from this Original Recipe we easily whipped up a yummy breakfast to enjoy.

The crepes themselves, had only a small amount of flavor, as to not overwhelm your choices of toppings. However, in the future, I might try adding a pinch of ‘Cinnamon’ in the mixture for more flavor, or perhaps add a bit more ‘Vanilla Extract’.
