Equipment

  • Immersion blender
  • 8 inch skillet
  • Spatula

Ingredients
  

  • 4 eggs large
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups milk 2 %
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Instructions
 

  • In a large bowl combine all the wet ingredients (eggs, milk, vanilla, and oil).
  • In a medium bowl whisk together dry ingredients (all-purpose flour and salt).
  • Pour the dry ingredients into the bowl with the wet ingredients. Mix ingredients together with an immersion blender until completely smooth.
  • Heat an 8″ nonstick pan with melted butter over medium heat. Pour ¼ cup of the batter in the pan, tilt, and swirl the pan until it is evenly coated.

Notes

recipe tips

  • Use the first crepe as a test. Test your heat and generously butter the pan. Make adjustments to the heat if necessary.
  • Be sure that you don't flip your crepe too soon. Use the corner of the spatula to take a peek at the color and texture before flipping.
  • If you are making crepes for a crowd, enlist some help and have 2 pans going to speed up the process.
  • Stack cooked crepes on a plate and cover loosely with foil to keep them warm while you are cooking the rest of the batch.
