Basic Crepes

Directions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender container. For dinner crepes, add 1/4 teaspoon salt. For dessert crepes, add 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1 teaspoon sugar instead of salt. Cover and blend until smooth. If desired, flavor batter.
  2. Heat a lightly greased 6- or 8-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Remove from heat. Pour 2 tablespoons of batter into center of skillet (use 3 tablespoons batter for an 8-inch skillet). Lift and tilt skillet to spread batter and coat bottom of pan. Return to heat. Cook for 1 minute or until light brown. Turn with a spatula, and cook second side for 30 seconds.
  3. Slide finished crepes onto paper towels. For filled crepes, spoon filling into center; roll or fold crepe while still in the pan; slide carefully onto plate. Repeat with remaining batter, greasing skillet and stirring batter if needed. Makes about 12 (8-inch) or 16 ( 6-inch) crepes.

Desert Crepe Ideas:

Fill dessert crepes with one of the following combinations: sliced bananas; chopped toasted walnuts, and a touch of maple syrup; fresh fruit slices, granola, and fruit-flavor yogurt; mixed fresh berries and plain or vanilla yogurt; or soft-style cream cheese combined with fruit preserves or lemon curd.
