Ingredients

    1 large egg
    1/3 cup (two eggs worth) egg whites
    1 1/2 cups milk
    1 cup all purpose flour
    1 tablespoon canola oil

Directions

Making a successful crepe can be a little tricky, and does take some practice. One of the keys is the proper consistency of the batter. Be careful it is not too wet. Adjust the milk so that the final consistency of the batter is about like a thin milkshake. I start by adding one cup, and then a 1/4 cup at a time.

After mixing the ingredients, ladle about a 14 cup of batter onto a medium hot griddle lubricate with PAM or similar spray. Cook on first side until the edges begin to move away from the side of the pan. Carefully separate from the griddle before attempting to flip. I use a butter knife to lift around and under the crepe. Then, insert spatula directly under the crepe, lift and flip in one quick motion. If your aim is off you can adjust the position of the crepe by shaking briefly until the crepe is in position. Continue to cook on side two for 30 sec to one minute. The second side is not as critical, since the crepe is already cooked by the time you flip it. It just feels better if its at least warmed on both sides.

I keep the crepes warm by putting them on a plate above a pan filled with hot water and the burner on low. Cover with an appropriate lid. You can even transfer the pan with the plate of crepes to the table so each person can serve himself.

The BHG recipe says this makes 18 crepes. They must use a very small pan. I use a 10 inch griddle and I am lucky to get 6, which makes for two generous crepes per person. Anyway, its easier to make 6 large than 18 small.
