Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. So why just have it in the morning?! Sometimes for a special treat I make crepes…or as my family lovingly calls them, “Really really thin pancakes.” The kids love them! And surprisingly they are not that hard to make! The ingredients are simple and once you get the hang of pouring them and flipping them it's a breeze!
My kids love them because they can fill them with what they like. We usually use fresh fruit, whip cream, peanut butter, chocolate sauce, cream cheese, jelly and syrup. But the possibilities are endless!

- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and the eggs. Slowly add in the milk and water, stirring to combine. Add the melted butter; beat until smooth. You want to make sure that all the lumps are out.
- Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, I used about 1/4 cup for each crepe but that will depend on the size of the pan you choose. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.
- Cook the crepe for about 1 1/2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a spatula, turn and cook the other side. Serve hot.
*I make mine using all purpose gluten free flour and they turn out great! (Actually I like them better this way!)
