I had never made crepes before, but wanted to try and this recipe looked easy. Boy, is it ever. And the crepes were absolutely delicious even though I omitted the butter and used 1 percent milk. Next time, which will be today, I think I'll cut out the sugar, too, since I'll probably use some savory fillings rather than sweet. Thanks for a recipe that will become a standard in our house.

Fantastic recipe. So much easier not flipping them over. I added vanilla for dessert crepes.
I mix mine differently. I let the butter cool and slowly add it to the eggs while whisking the whole time to not cook the eggs. Then I add the milk, this makes a more smooth batter. I let the batter rest for at least 1 hour, preferably wait overnight, and then use it. Much easier to handle when it has time to rest. Omit the sugar and change things up for a savory crepe.

I make a low-fat version of this recipe every Sunday. It's become a family tradition. My modifications: I use Splenda instead of sugar. I use skim milk instead of regular milk. I use egg beaters instead of eggs. I skip the butter entirely (used to use a substitute, but I just don't find it necessary). I add cocoa to the recipe, approximately 1 tbsp, to add a richer, chocolate flavor. I've made both the full-fat version and the low-fat version, and as the low-fat is a bit lighter, my family seems to prefer it (then again, we're all pretty accustomed to lighter tastes, so if you're used to heavier foods, I'm sure you'd prefer the full-fat version).

I was really impressed with the way this made the perfect crepe. I only had one mistake and that was because the pan was too hot. I would take the pan off the heat in between crepes to allow it to cool and then pour the fresh batter in. I did have to add oil one time as well. I just used the Crisco spray on the pan and it worked great. Anyway made a very nice Chrstmas crepe with mixed berries. Thank you!

great recipe. I only used 1Tbsp of sugar and about half the butter.. and still turned out great. I always eat these with maple syrup like my French Canadian grandmother used to do. mmm.

Wow, this is a dangerous recipe for me to have! I'm not the best at making pancakes but these were actually easier to make and turned out just right. I love that you don't need to flip them! I filled half with nutella and bananas and the other half with cream cheese and berries.

Great recipe! I made these one afternoon for my family, and within 10 minutes they were all gone. I used Swiss cheese and turkey on the crepes, and they turned out fantastic! This crepe recipe is simple yet delicious.
