Crepes for breakfast

I found such a good (and easy) crepe recipe.  I found it on the top 10 list for 2010 on  It was submitted by JennyC819.  If you want to go there then click here: or you can just read on.

Basic Crepes

  • 1 C. flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 C. milk
  • 1/2 C. water
  • 2 Tbl. butter, melted

Mix flour and salt in mixing bowl.  Whisk eggs, add milk and water.  Gradually add wet ingredients to flour (I use an electric hand mixer) until combined.  Add butter and beat until smooth.

Heat a lightly oiled frying pan (I like my 10″ Calphalon non stick pan) over medium high heat.  Pour batter onto hot pan, tilting the pan with a circular motion so the batter coats the surface evenly.

Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the edges start lifting off the pan and it no longer sticks when the pan is lightly jiggled from side to side.  Flip it over and cook the other side for just 10 seconds or so.  Overcooking can cause it to become rubbery.

Serve hot with whatever filling you desire.

We filled our breakfast crepes with slightly sweetened sliced strawberries and blueberries and then topped with whipped cream.
