Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
  • Melted butter for brushing pan
  • Cooking Directions

    Whisk milk, water, eggs, egg yolk, sugar and salt in medium bowl just until combined. Whisk in flour until smooth. Gently Whisk in 1/4 cup melted butter.

    Brush 10-inch nonstick skillet lightly with melted butter; heat over medium-high heat until hot. Lift skillet from heat and quickly pour IN 1/3 cup cr??pe batter, tilting and swirling pan to cover bottom evenly. Return pan to heat. Cook until bottom is light brown, about 60 seconds.

    Carefully turn cr??pe over in pan. Cook second side until light brown, about 30 seconds. Repeat to cook remaining batter, stacking cr??pes on a plate with a piece of waxed paper between them.

    Additional Notes:

    ??? Blender method: Combine cr??pe ingredients in blender container. Process 1 minute. Stop blender; scrape down sides of container. Process until smooth, about 30 seconds.

    ??? Make ahead: Cr??pe batter can be made ahead. Refrigerate, covered, 2 hours or as long as overnight. Stir batter before using.

    ??? Storing cooked cr??pes: Stack cr??pes with waxed paper between them; refrigerate, covered, overnight. Or wrap stacked cr??pes airtight; freeze up to 1 month. Defrost frozen cr??pes in the refrigerator.

    ??? Browned butter variation: To add a special nutty flavor to your cr??pes, brown the butter first. Heat 1/4 cup butter in 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until it melts and begins to foam. When foam subsides and butter turns golden brown, remove from heat. Watch carefully; butter can go from golden to burned very quickly. Let cool slightly before making batter.
