    Serves: 7 

    • 100g (4 oz) plain flour
    • 1 egg
    • 450ml (16 fl oz) semi skimmed milk

    Prep:2min  ›  Cook:13min  ›  Ready in:15min 

    1. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, egg and milk.
    2. Heat a large frying pan or crêpe pan over medium high heat. Lightly grease with vegetable oil or butter. Pour about 4 tablespoons of batter into the pan, lift the pan and turn it by rotating your wrist, spreading a paper thin amount over the bottom of the pan. Flip the crêpe when it starts to bubble. When it is finished cooking, remove it and repeat this process with the remaining batter.

    Used different ingredients. I added just a pinch of salt, just to give it a bit of a season.  -  18 Feb 2010


    Very nice and light the kids loved them covered in chocolate spread and banana  -  18 Feb 2010


    If I could give this recipe NO stars, I will. I have been cooking recipes from Allrecipes for a good time and 99.9% of the times they are superb, but, honestly, I did not care for this recipe: in these crepes the edges dryed before the center was cooked (and it remains undercooked no matter what I did) they taste like plain flour and milk: nothing above usual, I'm a good cook and I didn't like the crepes, I did mine perfectly round, thin and every time remains a bit of undercooked batter in the center, plus the flavor is like in every crepes: unflavored, just for add your favorite taste: salt or sweet. (Try the basic crepes recipe by Jen, that's a keeper, and you don't need to suffer making the crepes thin as paper, they cooked through very well. Believe me)  -  24 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
