Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp butter unsalted, melted
  • oil for frying

Instructions

  • Mix all the ingredients in a mixer or a blender really well and let sit for a few minutes.
  • In the meantime heat a non stick frying pan with a 1/2 tsp of oil really well or spray is generously with cooking spray. It is very important that the pan is very hot.
  • Pour 3/4 of a ladle of the crepe mixture, or more depending on your pan size, into the pan and spread the mixture to cover the entire pan, by rotating the pan. Leave about 1 to 2 min per side then flip over or until you see the edges of the crepe starting to brown a little bit. Once the crepe is done on one side it will also be able to slide it around and flip it over.
  • Repeat steps until you've prepared all the crepes.
  • When you're done use your favorite jam and spread about a tsp of jam per crepe, then roll the crepe and enjoy!
