Dessert Crepes

I actually had a crepe for the very first time when we were in Paris on our honeymoon. Wow are they good! For those who aren't familiar with crepes, they can be either sweet or savory. Your basic (savory) crepe is usually used like a sandwich wrap. But my favorite are the sweet crepes. When we were in Paris, we actually bought a package of crepes, heated them up in our little apartment toaster oven, and ate them for breakfast with some nutella. It was a great way to start the day! But you could also have them for dessert. Or a snack. Or whatever. :)


4 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/3 cups milk
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt


1. In large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, melted butter, flour sugar and salt until smooth.

2. Heat a medium-sized skillet over medium heat. Lightly grease pan with oil spray or a small amount of butter.
3. Using a serving spoon or small ladle, spoon about 3 tablespoons crepe batter into hot pan, tilting the pan so that bottom surface is evenly coated (this part takes a little practice). Wait until crepe looks solid and fully cooked before flipping it. Cook until golden brown (this only takes a few minutes per side, less for the second side). It should look something like this:

4. Serve however you chose! They are fantastic with fruit and nutella, but there are many things you can add to make a delicious dessert.
