Easy Crepes

image via

I tried this easy crepe recipe the last time Mike had a weekend off. They were fast, easy and delicious.
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup milk or more
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • pinch of salt
Mix together all ingredients in a large bowl. Fill a ladle about 3/4 full and ladle onto hot, lightly buttered griddle. Swirl the pan around to coat the bottom of the pan. Cook about 3 minutes, flip, cook about 30 seconds and viola!
