Total Time: 26 min,Prep5 min, Cook 20 min,
makes about 17 to 22 crepes


Crepes Ingredients:

2 large eggs
3/4 cup milk

1/2 orange juice
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
pinch of salt
2 tablespoons of sugar
3 tablespoons melted butter
Butter, for coating the pan

Fillings:

 Nutella, whipped cream, fruits of your preference, chocolate or caramel syrup.


Directions:


In a blender, combine all off ingredients and pulse for 10 seconds. Place the crepe batter in the refrigerator for 1 hour. This allows the bubbles to subside so the crepes will be less likely to tear during cooking. 

On a medium to low heat use a small non-stick pan. Add butter to coat, once butter sizzle, pour 1 ounce of batter into the center of the pan and swirl to spread evenly. Cook for 30 seconds, flip and let it cook for another 10 seconds. Place on a flat surface or plate. Lay them out flat so they can cool. Continue until all batter is gone or you can store the left over batters in the refrigerator for 48 hours.



To store unused crepes:
 Once crepes are cooled, store in seal-able plastic bags in the refrigerator for up to 7 days or in the freezer for up to two months. When using frozen crepes, thaw on a rack before gently peeling apart.

*For non dessert crepes:

 Omit the vanilla extract and sugar. However,  add 1/4 cup chopped fresh herbs, spinach or sun-dried tomatoes to the egg mixture.
