Enjoy these super-easy yummy Crepes.
1 3/4 cups - Frankie's All Purpose Flour
1 3/4 cups - Milk
5 - Eggs
1 Tbsp. - Vegetable oil
Pinch - Salt
In a bowl combine all ingredients and whisk together thoroughly. Ensure that there are no lumps.
In a well-oiled pre-heated flat pan, over medium heat, pour approx. 1/4 cup of the mix into the middle and spread out as thin as possible with a silicone spatula or by tipping the pan and spreading the mixture around. When evenly cooked (not crispy) on one side, flip and finish cooking on other side. Ensure that your crepe doesn't get too crispy or you won't be able to roll it. When cooked, lay on a plate and keep warm with a towel until you fill it. Don't worry if your crepe doesn't work out on the first (or second) try. The first crepe in the pan typically never works out because there are so many things to make adjustments - less/more batter, less/more cooking time, less/more temperature... the list goes on.
Filling: This part is really up to you. Add banana, then roll it up and drizzle with dark Belgian chocolate, add scrambled eggs with bacon, roll and drizzle with Hollandaise sauce... the limit to what you put in a crepe is really limitless, so have fun and be creative.
