Best Crepe Recipe Ever

First of all, its fun to call them "Creeps" or to fake a french accent and pronounce it "Kweps". Having said that, here's how to make them:

1 Cup Flour
4 Eggs
1 and 1/2 Cups Milk
3 Tbsp. Melted Butter
3 Tbsp. Honey
1 tsp. Vanilla
Pinch Salt

1. Beat the eggs, then mix in the flour.
2. Blend in everything else.
3. Spread the batter very thinly onto a non-stick cooking surface of about 350°. When the crepe has solidified, flip it over and brown the other side. Makes about 10 eight-inch crepes.

Some things to remember:

Crepes are way better than pancakes. In every way. They are easier to make, they taste better, they're fancier, and they don't soak up syrup like a sponge.

Unlike pancakes, the batter makes even better crepes if you let it sit in the fridge for 24 hours. I have no idea why this is.

This recipe is a SECRET recipe, according to the guy who gave it to me. That's why I'm publishing it on my unpopular personal blog rather than on my internationally acclaimed award-winning professional blog which I write under a pseudonym.

These crepes are also good with savory foods. Make an extra large one into a sandwich wrap, using the crepe like you would a tortilla.

This is the best pop-culture crepe reference in recent years.

Ha! That was a great clip - did you see 30 Rock's Kenneth in the background?

CREPES! They really are the best. Thanks for reminding me about them however I actually would submit that one of their worst features is not being able to soak up as much syrup - the thing is I love syrup.

I'm always on the lookout for a superior crepe recipe. Thanks for the tip.

And I agree with kel. Sunday crepes are the best kind of crepe. Any other crepe is number two or lower.
