Ingredients

    1 cup all-purpose flour
    2/3 cup cold milk
    2/3 cup cold water
    3 large eggs
    1/4 tsp salt
    3 tbsp melted butter, plus 2 more for brushing on pan

Directions

Makes 10 8" crepes, 16 6" crepes, or 20 5" crepes

Mix all the ingredients smoothly in a blender or with a whisk. Refrigerate for a 1/2 hour. A rest allows the flour particles to absorb the liquid, making for a tender crepe. Heat a nonstick frying pan with bottom diameter 5 to 8 inches at medium heat until drops of water dance on it; brush lightly with melted butter. Pour in 2 to 3 tablespoons of batter and tilt pan in all directions to cover bottom evenly. Cook about 1 minute, or until browned on the bottom; turn and cook briefly on the other side. Cool on a rack as you continue with the rest. When thoroughly cool, stack and refrigerate for 2 days, or freeze for several weeks.

If serving immediately, fill the crepes with sugared strawberries and nutella. For a classic, French crepe, fill with ham, egg, and cheese. Butter, sugar, and lemon is also a classic. Use your imagination.
