by Philippe Laurelle

 

Ingredients for Crepe Batter

  • 2 cups wheat flour
  • 3 whole eggs
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter (or grapeseed oil)
  • A pinch of salt

Instructions 

-Put the flour in a large bowl and create a well in the center. Add the salt. Pour the eggs into the well and whisk.

-Gradually add the milk until the batter is smooth (strain if necessary).

-Leave the batter to rest in the fridge for at least 1 hour, or overnight. 

-Heat up your pan over low-medium heat with some oil or butter. Use a ladle to pour some of the batter into the pan to create a thin layer over the whole pan. Let it cook for 30-40 seconds, then flip. Repeat until you have used up all the batter.
