World's Best Crepes

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups milk (slightly heated)
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon sugar (I used vanilla sugar)
5 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons melted butter
5 teaspoons vanilla extract

Preparation

1
Heat the milk in the microwave in a microwave safe bowl for about 45-75 seconds. You just want the milk to be slightly warm to the touch. Once the milk is warmed whisk all of the ingredients in a bowl until the mixture is
2
well combined. It is going to be thin and runny.
3
On medium heat, heat your frying pan or crêpe pan and spray
4
melt in some butter you can use a non stick cooking spray like Pam if you likebut the traditional French way is with butter.
5
Pour in one ladle full of batter and turn the pan until it is coated in a thin layer of batter. Depending on your ladle size you may need to add a little extra.
6
The thing to remember is that crêpes are meant to be thin.
7
If it is too thick it will not cook properly. So if it looks too thin then it
8
probably isn’t. It will start to look rubbery.
9
Loosen the edges and check the crêpe. When it starts to brown and the
10
edges shrink up a bit it is time to flip! This usually takes about 3 to 4
11
minutes but I suggest you check it because depending on your pan and your oven it could be slightly more or slightly less. Flip the crêpe. Then move the crêpe around so it has no wrinkles and let the
12
other side cook. About 2 minutes but again it never hurts to check it.
13
Now the fun part! Making your crêpe filling station. Crêpes
14
are very versatile and go well with a number of things like jam, fresh fruit
15
and even just plain with butter and powder sugar! You can also make savory
16
crêpes and eliminate the sugar in the batter and fill them with broccoli and
17
cheese or asparagus and tomato. The possibilities are only limited to what you can imagine! Since we were having breakfast and I had all these gorgeous strawberries and peaches I decided that we would fill our crêpes with fresh fruit and dust them with a little bit of powder sugar! This is my favorite way to eat them. Fill the crepe with fruit. Roll it up. Sprinkle some powder sugar ontop and enjoy!
