Crepes

I had a couple of weeks of working in the culinary kitchens at school, a completely different vibe to the bakery. Kinda busy, seriously hot and manic. But during my time in the culinary kitchens I learned a few things. 

I made crepes for the second time but I used a fry-pan instead of a crepe pan. These are pretty easy to make the trick is to make sure your batter sits for at least an hour, and that you keep the heat pretty low (on my electric stove top it is set at 5 out of 8). 

Crepe Recipe (makes around 12 large crepes)
6 eggs
1 cup flour
1 cup milk
3 Tbs butter
salt

Mix using an immersion blender, and then chill for at least an hour before using.

Wow, your crepes are gorgeous. I haven't tried crepes in a while, but if you're telling me that it might be easy, hey, I'm in. Plus, they are sooo good.

These crepes look excellent. So many possibilities-- savory & sweet! When I was in France some of my favorite indulgences were nutella & banana panini & cinnamon sugar crepes.

Thanks for sharing this recipe!

I have to tell you, I always fail when I try to make crepes.
I'll try your recipe and will be a lot more patient. That's what I see here, a lot of patience.
