A definite family favorite! There are many recipes for crepes. I simply love this one!

4 eggs, beaten
1 c flour
1 1/3 c milk

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, melted butter, flour, sugar and salt until smooth. Heat a medium-sized non stick skillet over medium heat. Grease pan with a small amount of oil applied with a brush or paper towel. Using a 1/4 c measuring cup, fill it scantly with batter and pour into hot pan, tilting the pan so that bottom surface is evenly coated. Cook over medium heat, 30 seconds or until golden brown, flip over and cook for another 15 seconds. Serve immediately.
