1 Cup Flour, 1/8 Teaspoon Salt, 2 Eggs, 1 Cup Milk and 2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, melted Heat up a nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Whisk everything in a bowl until smooth. The batter will be watery. Using a ladle, pour a few tablespoons of crepe batter onto the center of the pan.
Holding onto the handle of the pan, remove it from the heat and swirl the pan so the batter coats the bottom of the pan. You want to make the coating as thin as possible. Swirl the pan around so batter evenly coats the sides. If you have holes in the crepe, go ahead and add more batter to the pan to cover them.Return the pan to heat.
The batter will quickly dry and loose its shine. Use a non-metal spatula to loosen the crepe from the pan and flip over the crepe. It's perfectly acceptable to use your fingers if necessary. Finish turning over the crepe and make sure that all of the crepe bottom is in contact with the pan. After the crepe has finished cooking, gently slide it out onto a plate. If you like, you can stack the crepes in a ovenproof dish and keep them warm in the oven set at 195 degrees F.
