Recipe Ingredients for Basic Crepes

1 cups whole milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 egg
1 teaspoon cooking oil
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp sugar

Recipe Directions for Basic Crepes

  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender container. For dinner crepes, add 1/4 teaspoon salt. For dessert crepes, add 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1 teaspoon sugar instead of salt. Cover and blend until smooth. If desired, flavor batter.

  2. Heat a lightly greased 6- or 8-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Remove from heat. Pour 2 tablespoons of batter into center of skillet (use 3 tablespoons batter for an 8-inch skillet). Lift and tilt skillet to spread batter and coat bottom of pan. Return to heat. Cook for 1 minute or until light brown. Turn with a spatula, and cook second side for 30 seconds.

  3. Slide finished crepes onto paper towels. For filled crepes, spoon filling into center; roll or fold crepe while still in the pan; slide carefully onto plate. Repeat with remaining batter, greasing skillet and stirring batter if needed. Makes about 12 (8-inch) or 16 ( 6-inch) crepes.
