Ingredients

  • 2 cups Milk
  • 2 cups Water *
  • 6 large Eggs
  • 4 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons Melted Butter
  • 3 cups Flour
  • pinch to 1/4 teaspoon Salt

Instructions

  1. In a blender, add milk, water, eggs, sugar, melted butter, flour, and salt. Blend until it is completely smooth. Make sure to check the sides of the blender to ensure no flour has clumped on the sides.

  2. Heat a non-stick skillet or crepe pan over medium or medium-low heat. Once it has warmed, add a pat of butter or spray non-stick cooking spray all over the pan.

  3. Pour batter into the center and then lift up the skillet and quickly move it around until the batter has reached the edges of the pan. You want to watch for the batter to start to become opaque. 

  4. Take a spatula and run it along the edges of the pan. Once the crepe looks set, carefully flip to the other side. The other side only needs about 30 seconds to cook. Remove from the pan and place on a plate.

  5. Serve warm and top with your favorite toppings. See the post for toppings ideas.

Recipe Notes

*If you want thinner crepes, add about 2 Tablespoons of water to the batter. Also, use less batter and make sure to swirl the batter in the pan all of the way to the edges.
