Let me just tell you what a cool friend I have. She called me and invited our family over on a Monday night for dinner--they were serving crepes. I'm not that into crepes, but when I got there, she handed me a printed menu! She and her husband had two fancy crepe pans out and told us to place our order! I had FOUR. I ate them all. So tonight I borrowed her pans and made crepes for my in-laws, my mom and my family. Now they want to buy crepe pans and make them too! These are a complete meal and relatively easy to make. I just placed all the ingredients in glass bowls in front of the crepe station and made them as demanded.
This is only enough for 2 people. I had to quadruple it for our family.
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons whole milk
2 large eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
3 tablespoons melted butter, cooled slightly
1/4 teaspoon salt
Place all ingredients in a mixer and mix until blended, scraping down sides. Let stand an hour before serving.
Swirl 1/2 cup batter on crepe pan. Smooth with wooden crepe spreader. After about 30 seconds, flip. Spread filling--don't overdue it! A little bit of filling goes a long way. Fold into thirds and serve.
