  • Get your filling ingredients ready
  • Put the butter in the ramekin and melt it in the microwave, using the "melt" setting
    1.5 oz butter
  • Below are two ways of making the batter, depending on if you want to use a mixer or a blender.
    You can store the batter, covered and in the fridge, for up to 3 days, but stir it well before using.

Make the batter option 1: with a mixer or whisk (10 min)

  • Put the flour and salt in the large bowl
    6 oz flour, ¼ tsp salt
  • Crack the 3 eggs into the bowl
    3 eggs
  • Mix everything together thoroughly with the mixer or whisk
  • Add the milk and melted butter
    2 cups milk, 1.5 oz butter
  • Mix it all again until the mixture is smooth and has no lumps

Make the batter option 2: in a blender (5 min)

  • Put the milk in the blender
    2 cups milk
  • Add the flour, salt, eggs, and melted butter
    6 oz flour, 3 eggs, 1.5 oz butter, ¼ tsp salt
  • Blend until smooth

Prep the skillet (5 min)

  • Turn a stove top burner on medium heat
  • Place the skillet or frying pan on the burner and let it heat up
  • Grease the bottom with oil spray, or 1 tbsp of oil, or 1 tbsp of butter

Fry the crêpes (40 min)

  • Pour 2 fl oz (¼ cup) of the batter into the jigger or ¼ cup measure
  • Lift the skillet with one hand and pour in the batter with the other hand, immmediately moving the skillet around to let the batter spread and cover the entire bottom
  • Put the skillet back on the burner and let the crêpe cook for about a minute, until the edges start separating from the skillet
  • Slip the non-stick spatula under the crêpe, which should be frictionless, and then flip the crêpe over
  • Let it cook for another 30-60 seconds on that side and stack it on the large plate plate
  • Repeat this section until you're out of batter

Fill and Serve

  • Apply any spreadable filling however you want
  • For non-spreadable fillings, there are two general ways to go about adding them:
    1. In a line down the center, and fold each side over, like a burrito
    2. On one quarter of the crepe, then fold the crepe one way and then the other way, ending up with a quarter-circle pocket
  • You can add more stuff on top too, after it's been folded
  • Store unused crêpes, wrapped in plastic and foil, in the fridge for up to 3 days, or in the freezer for a couple of months. Warm them up before serving.
