Flip some crepes with the kids! Whether to celebrate Groundhog Day or because you can never get enough of a thin crepe rolled with butter and sugar, this recipe is totally child-friendly and fail-proof.
  • 1¾ cup all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 eggs
  • grated rind of a lemon
  • 2 oz melted butter
  1. Mix all the ingredients in a big bowl the night (or an hour) before.
  2. Refrigerate the batter until it's cold.
  3. Heat a wide non-stick crepes pan or the widest flat pan you have.
  4. Apply melted butter with a brush quickly and pour a ladle/cup of crepe batter in the pan. Turn sideways until the flat surface is entirely covered.
  5. Reduce heat to medium and wait for crepe sides to "curl up".
  6. With a wide spatula, flip over and cook for another 30 seconds.
  7. Transfer to a hot plate and reserve.
  8. Repeat until the batter is gone.
  9. If you feel confident, try flipping the crepe in the air. It takes a little practice but crepes acrobatics can be pretty spectacular.
  10. Eat with sugar, jams, fruits, yogurt, honey, chocolate spread or whatever you like but for more fun, roll the crepe to aet it!
  11. Note 1: no sugar in this recipe. You can eat the crepes sweet or savory.
  12. Note 2 - Buckwheat version: substitute ¾ cup buckwheat flour to the ¾ cup all purpose flour and add an additional cup of water.
