My daughter LOVES these. I have to be careful because they are very addicting. I had never made crepes before and this was very easy and very good.

1 large egg
1/4 c flour
1/4 c milk
1/4 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt
1 tsp sugar
1/4 stick of butter (the real stuff)
-these represent the approx. proportions, you can always experiement to taste and multiply for more servings, this is for about 3-4 crepes or 1-2 servings.

Mix all ingredients together so that there are no clumps in the batter. A whisk helps. The batter should be the consistency of a thick beverage like egg nog. Heat a frying pan on the oven at medium heat and rub some butter on the bottom so the crepes don't stick. Remove excess butter in pan with a paper towel. Too much butter will ruin crepes. Put about 1/4 cup of batter in the pan and spread around by rotating the pan (crepes need to be very thin, don't put too much batter in or you will end up with pancakes). Wait approx. 30 seconds then flip carefully with a large spatula, wait another minute or so and you have made your first crepe. Spread on toppings: nutella, chocolate, cream, fruit, coconut, etc. Wrap up like a burrito and ENJOY!

Thank you to my friend Levi, my daughter really enjoys these!
