Annamay’s Crepes

Ingredients: 

Strawberry and chocolate crepes

·   1 cup all-purpose flour

·   2 eggs

·   1/2 cup milk

·   1/2 cup water

·   1/4 teaspoon salt

·   2 tablespoons butter, melted

·   2 tbs of Vanilla

 Directions: 

  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and the eggs. Gradually add in the milk and water, stirring to combine. Add the salt and butter; beat until smooth.
  2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each crepe. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.
  3.  Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a spatula, turn and cook the other side. Serve hot
