    Crepes made with milk and beer. If the crepes are thicker than you'd like, thin the batter with additional milk, whisking it in gently.

    Serves: 12 

    • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
    • 250ml milk
    • 250ml beer
    • 225g plain flour
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 30g butter

    1. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk and beer. Gradually whisk in flour. Add the salt and oil, then whisk the batter vigorously for 3 to 5 minutes, so all is thoroughly incorporated. Let the batter sit for 1 hour.
    2. Heat a 25cm non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Brush it with butter, and when it's hot but not smoking, pour a scant 75ml of batter into the centre of the pan, and rotate it so the batter covers the bottom of the pan in a thin layer, pouring out any excess batter. Cook the crepe until it is just golden on one side, 1 to 2 minutes, turn it and cook until it is golden on the other side, about 30 seconds. Transfer to a plate, and keep warm by covering with aluminium foil. Continue until all of the batter is used.

    OH MY GOD these are good. Made a smaller batch yesterday just to make sure the recipe was good, and they disappeared out of the pan to my housemates as fast as I was making them! Everyone is Demanding More, so it's crepes for dinner tonight!  -  27 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I was a bit concerned about the beer...and it turns out rightly so. They were OK. My husband and our friend, both beer drinkers, loved them. I wasn't totally sold on them. The beer flavor really stood out. I filled the crepes with marinated beef cubes and mushrooms in a light sauce. We also made a dessert with pudding and chocolate sauce. I probably won't make them again.  -  20 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
