French pancakes take a little longer to make but are delicious served with fresh berries, or a sprinkle of sugar and lemon juice

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, 1/2 a cup of milk, sugar, flour, and salt until the batter is smooth.
  2. Whisk the remaining cup of milk and 1 tablespoon of melted butter into the batter. Let it stand for 1 hour at room temperature.
  3. Heat 7 inch crepe pan (or small skillet) over moderate heat and brush with melted butter. Pour 3 tablespoons of batter into the pan and immediately rotate the pan to coat the bottom evenly. Cook until lightly browned on the bottom (about 30 seconds).
  4. Flip the crepe and cook until brown dots appear on the second side, which takes about 10 seconds longer. Continue making crepes with the remaining batter. Should make about 17.
