Butter and heat your crêpe pan, or sloped sided non-stick skillet on medium to medium-high heat.
Once the butter is sizzling but not browning (proper temperature is important), pour about 1/4 cup of batter directly into the center of the pan.
I like to just add the batter back to my measuring cup after mixing for easy pouring into the pan since it’s already dirty anyways.
Immediately tilt the pan around until the batter spreads out evenly to the edges (or as evenly as you can).
No worries if your crêpe is lopsided, that does nothing to change the taste .
Cook the crêpe until the surface has dried and the edges begin to lift and brown lightly.
Just make sure to spread out the batter thinly by swirling to the edges, and let the edges dry on the first side before flipping.
The second side cooks much faster than the first. If you notice tiny holes in the crêpe after flipping the first side, that’s because your pan is too hot.
Here’s the “hardest” part – flipping the crêpe. You have a few choices…
* Just grab the crêpe by the edge with your fingers and flip it over.
* Use a spatula to flip it over just like you would a pancake – that’s what I usually do.
* Flip it up in the air, which is actually easier than it seems. Just launch it in the air using a
circular motion so it lands back in the skillet and not on your wrist like a funny looking corsage.
Once you got them all fried up, then get ready to eat! Try these crêpes with butter and orange marmalade, honey, just a bit of sugar, or marinated strawberries and whipped cream. Oh so yummy!!!
I like to just lightly sprinkle sugar on mine and then roll them up – that’s how we always did it in our family. Most people though fold them in half, then half again for a triangle shape. Street vendors fold them around a paper plate for easy eating!
