One of my favorite traditions on Valentine's Day is making crepes for breakfast. I make them at other times throughout the year but on Valentine's it's a must! Our two favorite fillings are lemon juice with powdered sugar and Nutella with strawberries. And whipped cream on top of both kinds. I've tried various recipes for crepes over the years and this is my favorite that I've come up with. They are super easy to make and are a fun change from pancakes and waffles.

  • 6 eggs
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
In large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, melted butter, flour sugar and vanilla until smooth. Heat a medium-sized skillet or crepe pan over medium heat. Grease pan with a small amount of butter. Using a serving spoon or small ladle, spoon about 3 tablespoons crepe batter into hot pan, tilting the pan so that bottom surface is evenly coated. Cook over medium heat, 1 to 2 minutes on a side, or until golden brown. Serve immediately.
