This recipe is so easy! It's made from things that everyone should have on hand in the kitchen - and can be filled with anything yummy you have from simple butter and sugar, to nutella, jam, honey, or whatever sweet things you can find in the fridge or pantry!
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
2 cups whole milk
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons melted butter (unsalted)
yields aproximately 6 crepes
Pour flour into a large mixing bowl. Gradually whisk in the milk then the eggs one-by-one. Next whisk in the sugar and melted butter. Whisk well until batter is smooth.
(Tip: Batter should be a nice, smooth consistency, and thinner than pancake batter)
Cover with a towel, or saran wrap and let rest for about an hour. DO NOT REFRIGERATE
When you are ready to cook, heat a medium to large (depending how big you want your crepes) skillet over medium-high heat. Melt a good slice (not huge, think picture-on-the-front-of-a-syrup-container sized) of butter and coat the pan evenly.
Using a ladel, pour in a good amount of batter (aprox. 1/2 - 3/4 cup depending on the size of the skillet you use. Use common sense - don't get stuck with thick, dense crepes! Batter should fill the bottom of the skillet - see photo for reference).
Once the crepe starts to bubble and you see bits turning golden, pick up the skillet and wiggle around a bit to loosen the crepe. Using a flick of the wrist, flip the crepe and set back on the stove. Cook for about 30-45 more seconds and move to a clean plate.
Spread with butter and fill with whatever your heart desires! I like mine with butter, sugar and strawberry preserves.
These are amazing with any type of sweet filling! Buon Apettito!!
