*note: In this recipe, it is better to combine all wet ingredients and then add dry ones. If you mix the eggs and flour first, your batter will be lumpy instead of smooth.
It’s no wonder this simple recipe has a 4 1/2 star rating! It’s quick, simple, and uses only flour, eggs, milk, salt, water and butter! Then, you can fill these great crepes with whatever you can imagine! Maybe you’d like them with steamed veggies, fresh fruit, ham and eggs topped with hollandaise sauce…the sky is the limit! My personal favorite is fruit crepes. Strawberry crepes with whipped cream, or peach crepes with cinnamon, nutmeg and whipped cream.
Estimated cost to make these crepes with strawberries and whipped cream for 4 people: $4.00
