Crêpes are one of the most well-known and versatile French foods. This delicious French staple originates from Brittany in northwest France, and can be served with either sweet or savory toppings as a main dish or a dessert.

2 cups flour

3 cups whole milk

5 eggs

2 tbsp melted butter

Pinch of salt

Pinch of sugar

Expeller pressed, high-heat cooking oil (for greasing pan)
such as Canola or Grapeseed

Sift flour and mix with salt and sugar in a bowl.

Pour in eggs and stir well.

Slowly pour in milk while stirring. Keep stirring batter until small bubbles
form on the surface.

Stir in butter.

Place a non-stick skillet over medium heat.

Lightly grease skillet with oil.

Pour in enough batter to cover the surface of the pan (about ¼ cup).

Cook until golden brown, about 1 minute, then flip crêpe over and cook
other side for about 45 seconds.

Continue making crêpes until all the batter has been used. Keep warm
by covering with a dish cloth.

Makes about 15 crêpes.

Try melted chocolate, jam, ice cream, Nutella, nuts, cinnamon and sugar, and fruits such as berries and bananas. For a fun and elegant presentation, drizzle a fruit coulis on top of the crêpe and serve with a dollop of whipped cream.

For savory crêpes, experiment with fillings such as cheese, asparagus, ham, spinach, eggs, mushrooms, and artichoke. Adding a touch of crème fraîche is always a good idea too!
