Ingredients

2
2/3 cup
1% milk
1/2 cup
all-purpose flour
1 tbsp
butter, melted
1 tsp

Instructions

  • Heat an 8-in. non-stick frying pan over medium-high.
  • Whisk eggs in a medium bowl. Whisk in milk, flour, butter, sugar and vanilla until no lumps remain.
  • Pour 1/2 cup batter into the centre of the hot pan. Lift pan from burner. Quickly tilt to very thinly cover bottom. Return pan to burner and cook until top is set and edges begin to turn golden, about 30 sec. Loosen with a spatula and flip. Continue cooking 30 sec more. Transfer crepe to a plate. Cover with kitchen towel to keep warm. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve immediately with a drizzle of maple syrup, or use to make our Breakfast burritos.

Tip
