WOW so good. I did add about 1/4 t. of vanila and served them IHOP style (gently folded in quarters). I put fresh strawberries that have been tossed with sugar on top (strawberries sit for a good hour to make juice). Perfect recipe.
I found these to be a bit thick, heavy, and without much flavor. Maybe it was my technique. Thanks Claire.
I've seen other crepe recipes that were very complicated but this one is simple, easy and able to be "dressed up" as you wish. For example, I added 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon into the batter and it was great! I recommend using butter, not oil to grease the skillet and they cooked best at medium heat for me. My family loved them!
Great recipe! I had never made crepes before but my visiting brother made the request. They were so easy and tasted really great. I ended up adding a tsp. of vanilla and sprinkled in some cinnamon as well. Also, added some extra tbs. of milk to get a nice thin consistency. I then stuffed with a cream cheese mixture and strawberries. Topped them off with homemade strawberry syrup and whipped cream....yum!
I recommend using a non-stick pan, as too much butter or margarine in the pan affects the taste and the consistancy of the crepe.
These are the first crepes I've ever cooked at home and it was super easy. Filled with Nutella (my favorite filling for crepes) and they were DELISH. My son loves them filled with ham and white cheese and his were yummy too! I set the recipe for 6 servings and still only got about 12 crepes out of it, although mine were large. Next time I will double it to 12 servings as we like to keep them in the fridge to fill, heat up and eat as we are ready.
Very easy and delish. I had to add more milk to make it runny, which is really the key with crepes. I also added 1/2 tsp of vanilla to the batter. I put out several small bowls with sugar, powdered sugar, brown sugar, jam, syrup, and whipped cream in them. My kids made their own style. Some of us like to roll them up and eat with our hands, others like to fold in quarters and use a fork and knife. You won't be disappointed.
These were very good basic crepes. I used 1 1/4 cups milk instead of just 1, and the consistency was just right. Use an 8-in griddle if possible. I have a 10-in, and I couldn't get the crepes shaped properly unless I poured out much more batter. Each of my crepes looked weird and amoeba-like, often with crazy legs. But the texture was right and they tasted great.
