Crepes at home? Go for it! This recipe makes it easy to enjoy homemade crepes any time of day, stuffed with decadent crepe fillings like chocolate hazelnut, strawberries and ricotta and peanut butter banana.
Whisk flour, sugar and salt in small bowl; set aside. Place milk, eggs, butter and vanilla in blender container; cover. Blend until smooth. Add flour mixture; cover. Blend about 10 seconds or until well blended and smooth, scraping sides as needed. Let batter rest 10 minutes. Whisk before cooking.
Test Kitchen Tip: Not in the mood to break out your blender? You can certainly make the crepe batter by hand. Beat milk, eggs, butter and vanilla in large bowl with wire whisk until well blended. Gradually add flour mixture, whisking until batter is smooth. If you have a few lumps, pour batter through a fine mesh sieve, scraping with a spatula to break up any lumps. Allow to rest 10 minutes before cooking.
- 2 Heat large (12-inch) non-stick skillet on low heat. Spray skillet with no-stick cooking spray. Increase heat to medium. Pour 1/3 cup batter into center of pan, tilting and shaking pan gently to spread batter and coat bottom completely.
Cook just until top is dry and edges start to brown, about 2 minutes. Carefully flip crepe using a wide spatula. Cook until bottom is lightly browned, about 1 minute. Remove crepe to wire rack. Repeat process with remaining batter, spraying skillet lightly with no-stick cooking spray before cooking each crepe. (Separate crepes with parchment paper to keep cooked crepes from sticking together, if desired.) Serve crepes warm or at room temperature, filled with your favorite toppings.
