Basic French Crepes
The possibilities are endless; fill the crepes with fruits, chocolate, caramel, coffee mousse, sweet fruit cream cheese, nuts, custard, pudding, creme fresh or whipped cream. Or go savory or gasp, combine sweet and savory.
I see crepes with fresh blackberries, strawberries, mango slices and custard garnished with whipped cream, chopped almonds and mint in my future.

How to Make Basic French Crepes
- In a small bowl mix together the flour, sugar, salt and nutmeg and set aside until needed.
- In a larger bowl add the eggs, milk, water and vanilla, beat with electric mixer.
Add in the flour mixture mixing until smooth, then stir in the melted butter, mixing well.

Lightly brown on both sides; then fill and garnish with your desired toppings.
