Secret Recipe Club: Crepes

crepesFor my second month in the Secret Recipe Club, I received Ruchi's Simply Food in the swap.  Ruchis's blog has numerous recipes to choose from, but her recipe for crepes caught my eye.  I used to make crepes quite often right after I graduate from college.  They were relatively easy to prepare and could easily be made either sweet or savory depending on the fillings and/or toppings.  I told Miss F I was making thin pancakes and she was sold.  I filled hers with mini chocolate chips, which melted beautifully inside the warm crepes.  She was instantly sold on the thin pancakes, so I told her they were actually crepes.  She said she loved crepes and so do I.
Crepes

¾ cup all purpose flour
2 tablespoons fine sugar
a pinch of salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
vegetable shortening

Whisk together the flour, sugar and salt. Whisk in the eggs to combine. Whisk in ¾ cup of the milk and the vanilla, being careful not to over mix. Let the batter rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour. Add the remaining ¼ cup of milk. Heat a non stick skillet brushed with vegetable shortening. Pour two tablespoons of batter into the pan and swirl the pan around until you have a thin pancake. Let cook for one minute, flip and cook for one minute more. Serve with your favorite fruits or chocolate.

I looooove crepes! Your post made me want to prepare a batch, I actually haven't made them a single time after I started blogging - almost 3 years ago. What's wrong with me?

Crepes totally take me back to high school home ec. class where i first made them. I haven't made these in forever and my mother's been asking for them, so I'm going to give your recipe a try over Easter!
