    1. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, egg and milk, stirring with a wooden spoon to make a smooth batter.
    2. Heat a large frying pan or crepe pan over medium high heat. Lightly grease with butter. Pour about 4 tablespoons of batter into the pan, lift the pan and turn it by rotating your wrist, spreading a paper thin amount over the bottom of the pan. Flip the crepe when it starts to bubble. When it is finished cooking, remove it and repeat this process with the remaining batter.

    I am French Myslef and this is the style I remember My Grandad making  -  08 Oct 2008


    This works just fine - like anything that involves adding flour to wet ingredients or working with raw flour, you have to let it sit for a bit (I always leave Crepe batter in the fridge for at least a half hour to let the flour do its thing. If the review says it tasted like flour...they didn't let the batter sit. This is a nice recipe because it is simple, easy to remember and you can add salt, orange or lemon rind, a bit of sugar or vanilla, some thinly sliced spring onion or what have you depending on what you want to fill the crepe with. And remember the first Crepe almost always is ruined - don't sweat that. You could add a touch of melted butter to the batter (taking out a bit of the milk) and that will help the stickiness problem.  -  08 Oct 2008
