French Crepes | Basic Breakfast Crepes | Breakfast recipe

French Crepes, a thin french styled pancakes made from the flour & egg mixture. The recipe is super simple and also it's the easiest batter making process for the pancakes that i have tried so far, but making thin pancakes is bit tricky for first one or two pancakes. Once you get the knack of pouring and swirling the batter fast, then it's like icing on the cake !!! 
And i love this pancake versatality, the crepes can be stuffed with egg & cheese or topped with powdered sugar or drizzle some breakfast syrup on top. Here in the recipe, i have served the french crepes with simple sugar and breakfast syrup. Without further delay, let's checkout the procedure, before that if you like to know what i have shared on the past 4 days under International Breakfast
Day 1 - Mysore Masala Dosa from India
Day 2 - Mani pittu from Srilanka
Day 3 - Mofo Gasy from Madagascar
Day 4 - Baozi from China  

French Crepes

Preparation Time : 1 hr | Cooking Time : 10 minsServes : 1 or 2 
Recipe Category: Breakfast | Recipe Cuisine: French
Ingredients
All Purpose flour - 1/2 cup
Egg - 1
Water - 1/4 cup
Milk -1/4 cup
Sugar - 1 tsp
Vanilla Extract - 1/2 tsp
Butter - for greasing

Procedure
Take all the ingredients. Crack open a egg in a blender/mixie jar and all other ingredients one by one.Blend it well until it became smooth batter. Pour into the bowl and let it set aside for minimum 1 hr. The batter should be smooth and free flowing. Heat the 10 inch non stick pan.Add 1/2 tsp of butter and pour a ladle full of batter into pan and gently swirl, so that it form thinly layer on the pan.Cook it for a min and then gently flip into other side and cook it for 30-40 secs. Remove it from the heat and the french crepes is ready to serve .Serve it with powered sugar on top or with any breakfast syrup or both like me :-)
Notes:
  • Don't over heat the pan, otherwise you can't swirl the batter evening the crepe would end up thicker.
  • Depends on the flour quantity, you may sometimes need additional 1 or 2 tbsp of water/milk.
  • Let the batter set it for minimum 1 hr before making the crepes.
