Crepes for breakfast or dinner

I make crepes several times a week, it can be for breakfast, snack or even dinner sometimes.  Here is my simple recipe from basic ingredients.

Crepe stack

Ingredients: (makes about 12-14 crepes using 9 or 9.5in crepe pans):

  • 2 cups of milk
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tablespoons of oil
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • About 1.5 cups of flour

Step 1: Mix all the ingredients well, apart from boiling water. Once all mixed smoothly, add hot water.

Step 2: Let it stand for 10-15 min and start frying! Oil spray pans for the first crepe, then continue without.

Step3: Pour batter with ladle on hot crepe pan and spread batter evenly.  In about 15-20 second the edges will start to brown, if not, wait a little longer.  With crepe flipper separate edges gently from the pan and flip the crepe.  Leave it on the pan for another 20 seconds and remove.

I use 3 crepe pans at the same time. It speeds up the process a lot! Serve with powder sugar, maple syrup of sour cream
