Ingredients

2 c
milk
2
eggs
1 c
brown sugar
1/4 tsp
salt
2 c
unbleached flour (i used pastry flour)
butter or oil, for cooking
real maple syrup

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Add the CREPES ingredients in a blender or food processor *in order given*. Blend for about 1 minute or until batter is smooth.
2
Place about 2 tablespoons of butter and/or coconut oil in large *skillet over medium heat. When pan is hot and butter/oil has melted, pour 1/4 cup batter into middle of pan then swirl pan around so that a large crepe forms.

*The original recipe specified a cast iron skillet. I tested the crepes using both a cast iron skillet and an 8-inch non-stick pan. Both worked well.
3
Cook crepes about 1-2 minutes per side or when crepe starts to get crispy around edges and bubbles. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve with maple syrup and/or other TOPPING suggestions.
