- Step 1 – Prepare Batter
- Mix all batter ingredients in a blender for about 30 seconds, until completely blended.
- Allow batter to “rest” in refrigerator for at least one hour or overnight.
- Step 2 – Cook the Crêpes
- Heat an 8-10 inch crêpe or sauté pan over medium heat.
- Brush pan with butter.
- Pour just enough batter to coat the bottom and lowest edges of the pan. Pour batter into center of pan first, and then swirl pan quickly to move batter around bottom of pan so that it’s coated with a thin layer of batter.
- Let it cook for about 30 seconds (until it’s lightly browned on the bottom and bubbles appear around the edges). Flip and cook for another 15 seconds or so. Remove from pan to cool.
- Gently stack pancakes in a circular layout on a plate to cool (this makes them easier to pick up than stacking them directly on top of each other).
- Continue cooking crêpes until batter is used up.
