  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted


Preparation time 10mins
Cooking time 30mins


Step 1

Find a large mixing bowl and combine the eggs and the flour, whisking thoroughly. Add the milk and water gradually, stirring to mix it up. Next, add the salt and butter and then beat until nice and smooth.

Get a griddle or frying pan, lightly oil it, and heat it over medium high heat. Put the batter onto the griddle or frying pan, using about 1/4 cup for each individual crepe. Tilt the pan with a circular motion to get the batter to evenly cover the surface.

Cook the batter for about 2 minutes, or until the bottom is a light brown. Take a spatula and loosen the crepe, and turn it over to cook the other side. For best results, serve hot.
