Equipment

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter melted and cooled plus more for the pan

Instructions

  • Add the ingredients you your lender and pulse about 10 seconds or until smooth then pour into a bowl, cover with plastic and chill for at least an hour or up to a day.
  • Melt 3-4 tablespoons of butter in a small bowl then warm your pan over medium heat. When the pan is hot brush with butter then pour about 1/4 cup of batter in the center. Immediately use a tool or tilt the pan to spread out. Cook for 30-60 seconds or until the top looses its shine then flip using a crepe or offset spatula and cook another 30 seconds. Brush with butter before each new crepe is poured.

Notes

  • Measure your flour correctly! Adding too much flour to the recipe is the most common mistake. The best, and easiest way to measure flour is by using a scale. If you don't have one then fluff your flour with a spoon, sprinkle it into your measuring cup, and use a knife to level it off.
  • Let your batter rest! I usually make the batter a day ahead then let it hand out in the fridge so I can make my crepes in the morning with less hassle.
  • It's important for your pan to be nice and hot but not scorching. Once the batter goes in you need to move quickly so spread the crepe out either with a tool or by tilting the pan as soon as possible
  • Your first crepe will probably not be pretty, that's ok! just keep going and make sure to brush with butter as you go.
  • Cover the crepes and warm in the oven or microwave before serving/ assembling.
  • Have fun with toppings and fillings, you can use anything from Nuttella and toasted nuts to fresh fruit, jam berries and even savory fillings.
