Yummy and Tender Crepes Recipe

Learn to cook – TRY NEW THINGS – learn from your mistakes, be fearless, and above all have fun.

I use to hold the false assumption that crepes were really hard to make!  After eating them at a friend’s house, I decided to give them a try.  And I’m so glad I did.  They are not so difficult to whip up and have quickly become a family favorite!

We love to fill them with yogurt and fruit for an inexpensive dinner.

Recipe (from Julia’s Kitchen Wisdom by Julia Child):

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

Mix all ingredients together in a blender.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes or more.  This 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 until drops of water dance on it; brush lightly with butter.  Pour in 2 to 3 tablespoons of batter and tilt the 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 extras for 2 days, or freeze for several days.
