- 3⁄4 cup All Purpose Flour
- 1 pinch Salt
- 1 3⁄4 cup Milk
- 1 each Egg Yolk
- 1 each Whole Egg
- 1 Tbsp. Butter, melted
- Sift the flour into a mixing bowl.
- Add a pinch of salt, the egg yolk and whole egg and half of the milk.
- Stir with a wire whip until smooth.
- Add the remainder of the milk and melted butter and whisk until smooth.
- Start with a non-stick (Teflon) saute or fry pan on medium high heat.
- Additionally, spray the pan lightly with non-stick vegetable spray. For a 10 inch diameter pan, start with approximately 1/4 cup of crepe batter, and pour in the middle of the pan.
- Roll batter evenly over the surface of the pan by holding the pan up and tilting the pan from side to side and rotating in a circular manner to encourage batter to spread across surface.
- Return pan to burner and allow batter to set and slightly brown on edges of the pan.
- Lift one edge of the crepe with a spatula and turn over to cook 30 seconds on the opposite side. When finished, slip crepe out of pan onto a plate or cookie sheet.
- Repeat procedure and stack one finished crepe upon each other until all crepes are cooked.
- Chocolate Crepes: Add 2 Tbsp. Granulated Sugar, 1/2 Tsp. Vanilla & 2 Tbsp. Cocoa
- Spinach Crepes: Blend in 1/4 cup, Pureed, Cooked Fresh Spinach, 1 pinch Garlic Powder & 1 pinch Onion Powder
- Cajun Crepes: Blend in 2 Tbsp. Cajun Seasoning Powder
- Notes: All of the ingredients may be put in the blender for 10 seconds. If the batter is made in the blender, it may be used immediately. If it is prepared by hand, allow it to rest for 1 hour so that the flour and the milk will be well combined.
- Storage: Crepes will keep in the refrigerator (stacked upon one another) or in the freezer filled or unfilled, in plastic wrap.
