Basic Crepe Batter Recipe
This fool-proof batter is your go-to recipe for all types of crepes, from elegant main dish crepes to easy dessert crepes.
- ¾ cup of all-purpose flour
- 1 tbsp of melted butter
- 1¼ cups of skim milk
- 2 eggs
- ¾ tsp of salt
Yield: 10 8-inch or 12 6-inch crepes
Combine all ingredients into a blender and mix until well-blended. You may also combine them by hand. If combining by hand, mix the eggs and milk separately and combine slowly with the dry ingredients. Mix in the melted butter last. Important: Refrigerate the batter for at least 30 minutes. This gives the batter the opportunity to rest and fully come together.
