Ingredients

Ingredients mentioned below use standard measuring cups and spoons.

4 cups of milk

4 large eggs

2 cups regular bread flour

1/2 cup of butter

1/2 cup of butter(for the batter and extra 3 tablespoons for to cook the crepe)

Instructions

Making the batter.

In to a large mixing bowl, pour in a cup of milk followed by eggs and then salt, whisk until combined.

Add flour to the bowl while gradually mixing it into a smooth consistency, make sure there are no lumps in the batter.

Place butter in a small bowl and microwave for 15 seconds until it melts and pour the melted butter into the batter, mix well.

To the thick batter, gradually add milk in 1/2 cups until you have the right consistency.

The correct consistency would be thin but smooth and fluid. this would mean if you scoop a ladle of batter and pour it back into the bowl, the consistency should be like heavy cream. and should flow in one smooth stream, there should not be any breaks when you pour, if there are, it means the batter is too thin(instructions given above on what to do for a thin batter.

Should you find the batter too thick, add milk in 1/4 cups until you reach the right consistency.

Once the batter is done, taste and add salt if you need, you can also pour in 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence if your filling is sweet or fruity.

Making the crepes

You can use your regular frying pan, preferably the non-stick variety so that the crepe comes off the pan with the least amount of effort. use the flat-bottomed frying pan and not the ones that have a curved bottom to it.

Heat the pan over medium heat for 1-2 minutes.

Using a heat-resistant material spread butter on the flat surface, let the butter sizzle.

Once you hear the sizzling, lift pan from fire and pour 1/2 cup of the batter right in the middle of the pan, tilt and using a circular motion spread the batter evenly to all side, making sure the batter spreads around.

Immediately place the pan over heat, cook the crepes until the edges turn brown and crispy,1-2 minutes over medium heat.

Gently insert a spatula to loosen the crepe and flip it to other side and cook until both sides are evenly cooked.

Transfer crepe from pan to a plate, wipe the pan with butter and pour in the next cup of batter, continue until batter is over.

Serve with your favorite filling and enjoy.
