Crepes

1 cup all purpose flour
pinch of salt
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1 tablespoon melted butter
oil or butter for cooking

Mix eggs, milk, and melted butter, add to sifted flour. Add salt. Mix until smooth. Leave to sit for a little while for the crepes to be tender.

Brush oil or butter onto nonstick pan. Pour two tablespoons of batter at a time and turn the skillet so it has a thin layer all around. When it is light brown on the bottom, flip (the top will start to look dry). Turn and repeat. You may have to wipe pan out between every couple.

Take finished crepes and put a little marscapone cheese (or ricotta, cottage cheese, whatever you want...) in the inside and roll up. Top with jams or syrups...whatever. I warm up marmalade and various jams as topping and sprinkle with powdered sugar.

You can also have them with nutella or a cinammon sugar mix.

I just took a typical crepe recipe (i used Joy of Cooking's), filled them with a little marscapone cheese (just use a little), roll them up.

Top with jams or dessert toppings. I used blackberry jam (warm them up on the stove or in the microwave), marmalade, and raspberry dessert topping.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Sorry it took so long to post...i didn't see the comment. :-)

3 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1 tablespoon
oil or butter for cooking

Mix eggs, milk, and melted butter, add to sifted flour. Add salt. Mix until smooth. Leave to sit for a little while for the crepes to be tender.
