Just another crepe recipe Just another crepe recipe
Number of Servings: 6


    4 eggs (use five if eggs are small)
    1 cup flour
    1/2 cup milk (I use 1% or low-fat)
    1/2 cup water
    1/2 tsp salt
    2 TBS melted butter


Measure all ingredients into blender vessel and blend for 30 seconds. Scrape down sides and blend for 15 seconds more. Cover and let sit for an hour so that flour absorbs liquid. (Blend well by hand if you don't have a blender, and they will turn out just as good).

Fry using melted butter in medium frying pan on medium heat. Turn carefully when edges begin to curl away from side of pan. These should make 11-12 crepes. Pour them as thin as possibly without having holes for more delicate crepes. I use about 90% of a full soup ladle for each crepe.

Add 2 tsp of sweetener and vanilla if you want sweeter crepes.

Makes approximately 12 crepes. 1 serving = 2 crepes.

    This recipe is great and very easy to make. I made this and put some lemon curd and strawberries on it, it was great. My husband even liked the crepes. - 5/14/07

    Very good, and no sugar added! They're lovely with simple cream, but I always love mine with tinned fruit. =) - 11/25/07

    Loved them! Filled with part-skim ricotta, raspberries and hazelnuts. A treat and satisfying for the calories. - 8/25/07
