Simple Crepe Recipe

I love crepes for breakfast. This is an easy and delicious recipe that my whole family enjoys. My husband and daughter like theirs with syrup but I like mine with a sprinkle of sugar and a squeeze of fresh orange juice inside (then roll it up).

My daugher's crepe with syrup on it.

Mine with a sprinkle of sugar and squeeze of fresh orange inside.

Makes about 10 crepes

3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons sugar
pinch of salt
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
1 teaspoon vanilla
butter for frying

Melt some butter in a nonstick pan (or crepe pan) over medium high heat. Take 1/3 cup of the batter and place it in the pan, swirl it around immediately to form a thin layer. Cook for a few seconds until the top starts to bubble. This won't take long so don't walk away. Flip the crepe and then cook only for a few more seconds until golden. Set on a plate and repeat the process until all the batter is gone. You can put the plate in a 200F oven just to keep the crepes warm until ready to serve.

Serve with syrup, fresh fruit, jam or a sprinkle of sugar.
