Crepes

What can I say? Everyone likes Crepes. EVERYONE! (Except maybe Commies...I don't know about them, but they probably like 'em too.) When I was little (maybe 11?) My neighbor Janeen Nelson taught me to make these. She used a recipe from our Ward Cookbook, and since I happen to have my own personal copy of said cookbook, I still use the same recipe she used. In our book it's called "Swedish Pancakes". And it recommends topping with powdered sugar and that's it! Talk about BORING!!! Anyway, this is my most requested recipe because these Crepes are so darn easy and good. And because everyone loves eating breakfast for dessert...and vice versa.

So, have a Crepe party and be sure to send me fan mail when you suddenly have tons more friends. (Don't blame me if they're just using you for your edibles.) Here goes...

Crepes
Combine in a batter bowl in this order:
2 cups milk
2 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
Stir until perfectly smooth. (Some people like to do this step in the blender, but I find adding the milk to the bowl first and using a hand mixer works just fine.)
Next add:
4 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
Beat thoroughly. Pour about 1/4 to 1/3 cup batter into pre-heated pan. (I usually have the stove on Medium. Make sure the pan is non-stick or have "Pam" on hand if you need it.) Tilt pan so it spreads out thin and forms a circle to the edge of the pan. Cook until edges start to look rubbery. Loosen edges. Turn.

It will be pretty well cooked, so it only needs to stay on the second side a little longer. I usually turn the oven on "warm" and pile them on a plate in there until we're ready to eat.

Serve with any or all of the following:
Nutella(or) Hot Fudge
Peanut Butter
Jam
Bananas
Applesauce
Berries, Fresh or Frozen
Whipped Cream (I'm a Spray Whip gal myself.)
Ice Cream
Powdered Sugar
Powdered Sugar and Lemon Juice
Syrup
Cream Cheese
Anything else you can think of!!! Enjoy!!!
