Sweet Crepes

Crepes can be eaten for breakfast, lunch dinner, or even late night snack (Any time because it's sooo good!). This means, no matter what time it is when you get a craving, you can make awesome crepes.
We eat crepes in two ways, sweet or savory.
This time we are sharing with you our sweet crepes. Savory crepes are made the same way, the only difference is that we make a meat and vegetable filling to go with them. Look for a recipe for savory crepe filling in the future.

For crepes you need (2 persons):
~300 g flour
~500 ml milk
1 egg
pinch of salt
Oil (sunflower or similar)
Filling - Nutella, banana, apple sauce, etc

Beat the egg in the milk. Add flour slowly and mix until the batter is just right - not too thin and also not too thick. Let sit in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes (this is kinda a chemical reaction which happens here with the milk and the flour... if we would tell you... we would have to kill you! :D).
A few minutes before you get the batter out of the fridge heat a small amount of oil in a pan over high. There should not be a lot of oil but just enough to cover the entire pan.

Wait until the oil is very hot and then pour a large scoop (he likes to use a soup ladle, I use a one cup measure not completely full). Pick up the pan and swivel the pan around so that the batter covers the entire bottom. Wait about one minute and use a spatula to get under the crepe and flip it. Each side should take only about one minute. (If you like the advanced version... try to flip it with the pan ;) - but we are not responsible for pancakes stuck to your ceiling haha)

If you are making many crepes you will need to add more oil to the pan.
The first crepe never turns out very well! We have no idea why but it is just the evil evil curse of crepe making. Don't let it frustrate you, just throw it out and keep going!

Serve crepes with anything you think would be good. We like bananas with Nutella  and apple sauce with cinnamon and sugar. Jelly, honey, or peanut butter would also be very good.

Put the filling you would like on the middle of the crepe, roll and enjoy!
