  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 1 1/4 Cups Milk
  • 1/4 Cups Water
  • 2 Tbsp Butter melted
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 2 Tbsp Granulated sugar
  • 1 Cup All-purpose flour


  • Place eggs, milk, water, butter, and vanilla in a large bowl and whisk until smooth.
  • Add the sugar, salt then slowly whisk the flour into the wet ingredients.  Whisk well until the batter is smooth and contains no lumps.
  • Alternatively, place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Place mixed batter in the refrigerator to rest for a minimum of 30 minutes or overnight.
  • When ready to cook, remove the batter from the fridge and give a gentle stir to reincorporate any ingredients that have separated. 
  • Heat a 9-inch non-stick skillet or crepe pan over medium heat.  When the pan is hot, lightly brush with butter.
  • Lift pan off the heat and add just under ¼ cup of batter to the middle of the pan.  Quickly tilt the pan and swirl to coat the entire bottom of the pan with batter.  Return to heat.
  • Cook for 45-60 seconds until edges look dry and there are large bubbles forming in the middle.
  • Carefully flip and cook an additional 15-20 seconds then remove from the pan and place on a plate.  Cover with a clean tea towel.
  • Repeat process until you have used all the batter.
  • Serve with desired fillings.
