Introduction: How to Create Perfect Crêpes
Crepes are great for breakfast and a nice alternative from pancakes but they can be a bit tricky to get right! Hopefully after this Instructable (and a little practice) you'll be cooking them like a pro!
Step 1: Ingredients and Equipment
This crepe recipe is very simple and easy to remember. I remember it as 123FME which stands for
• 1 cup of plain flour (250ml)
• 2 cups of milk (2x250ml)
• 3 eggs
This makes approximately 12 crepes but this will vary depending on the size of your pan.
Things you will need
• Spatula (preferably plastic)
• Large mixing bowl
• 1 measuring cup
• Flour sifter
• Large frying pan
• Vegetable oil spray
• Your fingers
Step 2: Mixing Them Together
Sift the flour into a large bowl and add the milk. Mix these two together before whisking in the eggs. The mixture will be quite runny, but don't worry! it's suppose to be like that.

Step 3: Cooking
*see video for steps*
Put the frying pan on a medium heat. Once it has heated up spray the pan with oil and add enough batter to cover the pan. For my pan that was about 3/4 Cup (it may take a few attempts to get it right). Straight away lift up the edges, this will help when trying to flip it later. Once the underside is golden brown lift up an edge with the spatula and flip the crepe (I find this easiest when i'm using my fingers). Once both sides are cooked serve immediately!
These crepes can be served with any number of toppings, my favorite is banana and maple syrup! other choices include jams, Nutella, lemon juice and sugar,melted chocolate and fresh fruit.
