Basic Crêpes

Crêpe, I usually call it as french style pancake, which is thin because of its thin batter (if you combine with the American pancake batter which is thicker).

I make crêpes on a crepe pan with its batter spreader, but don't worry if you don't have them, just use a non-stick pan and spread the batter just by moving the pan.

I make this usually on the weekend for breakfast and my daughter will be so happy because she can spread her crêpes full with Nutella. I like to eat mine with butter and maple syrup. Of course, you can add your favorite toppings into your crêpes like jam, nuts, fruits, ice cream, etc. Or you can eat them with savory toppings like ham and cheese.
