My dear departed mother used to make crepes for my sister & I and it was always our very favorite special breakfast. Her "recipe" was very simple and basic: flour, a dash of salt, one egg, and milk. She would keep adding more flour and milk, mixing after each addition, until the quantity was right for however many she wanted to make. The thin batter was poured onto a hot oil-greased pan and swirled out until it filled the pan, cooked for a minute or two, then flipped over. The hot oil made for crispy edges (which we loved) but the crepe was light and delicate. Mom would then spread a thin layer of our favorite jam on one side and roll it up to serve. Sometimes we would just hold it in our hand and not bother with a plate & fork :). I've tweaked it a bit over the years (sometimes adding some melted butter and sugar to the batter) but it's still the way my children and grandchildren want their favorite breakfast made!
