  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter melted
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice
  • 1/8 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • Toppings of choice I like Nutella and fruit but have also tried ham and cheese, cheese and smoked salmon


  • In a large bowl, mix together the eggs, melted butter, milk, water, vanilla and salt together until well blended.
  • Add the flour a little bit at a time until everything just comes together. Allow the batter to rest for 10 minutes.
  • Grease a small non-stick saute pan with some butter and turn the stove to medium heat.
  • Pour about 2-3 Tablespoons of batter into your prepared pan. Tilt it so the batter swirls all the way around and creates a circle.
  • After about 30 seconds, flip the crepe onto the other side. Cook for another 10-15 seconds.
  • Remove the crepe from the pan and transfer to a plate. Add your favorite toppings and roll it up or fold into half and then half again. Top with additional cheese or powdered sugar.
