Favorite Crepes

Favorite Crepes
from Favorites

1/2 cup cold water
1/2 cup cold milk
4 eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sugar
1 cup flour
2 tablespoons butter, melted

Put liquids, eggs, salt and sugar into blender; blend until mixed.  Add flour and melted butter and mix at top speed for one minute.  Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.  Heat crepe pan over moderate heat.  For each crepe, lightly grease pan with oil or butter.  Pour 1/4 cup batter into pan, rotating so batter spreads evenly.  Turn when lightly browned to cook other side.  Stack crepes and keep warm by placing a sheet of paper towel between crepes while cooking the rest.  Top with syrup, jam or fancy filling.  Roll up and enjoy!

I make this meal twice a year for my family and each time I make it I fall in love all over again.  I 1 1/2 times the recipe.  I also skip cooking them in a fry pan and pull out my pancake griddle so I can cook two at a time.  We like to use Nutella, freshly squeezed lemon, fresh strawberries and homemade whipped cream as our regular toppings.
