A Crepe is a type of very thin pancake originate from Brittany, a region in the North of France. They are generally served with cider, but they are also very popular with a variety of sweet or salty fillings.

This recipe is in all honestly terrible, for that amount of eggs you need at least a cup of flour.

Proper Savory crepe recipe would be

1 cup flour
2 Lg eggs
1 cup of milk
2 to 3 Table spoons of melted butter
1/4 tea spoon of salt
To make them sweet crepes just add 2 tablespoons of sugar and touch of vanilla.

Mix and let stand for 15 minutes and cook.

You should just call it an empty omelet.
You need more flour some salt and more milk.
And you need to let it stand in the fridge for 15 to 20 minutes for better results

That's another fine instruction. Are these things normally cooked on a special griddle and spread thin like an LP, or am I thinking of something else?

Yeah supposedly you should use a special crepe pan, but if you dont have one, like me, just use a simple frying flat pan. The result will be the same ;)

Thanks, I wondered about these - taste good either way though.
