Recipe type: Easy
Serves: 6-8
Ingredients
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract (optional if making sweet crepes; omit if making savory crepe)
  • 1-2 tsp. vegetable oil, for greasing pan if necessary
Instructions
  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, water, milk and vanilla (if using). Gradually add in the milk mixture to the flour mixture, stirring to combine. Beat until smooth.
  2. Heat a very lightly-oiled griddle, frying pan or Crepe Pan over medium-high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the center of the pan, using approximately ¼ to ⅓ cup for each crepe. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly. If using a T-Shaped Crepe Spreader, gently glide over surface of batter in circular motion to make large, flat circle. Try to make batter as even as possible as it spreads across the pan.
  3. Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown and it easily releases from the pan. Loosen with a spatula, turn and cook the other side.
  4. Serve hot.
