Crepes, something to try out!

So this was my first attempt. Let's continue trying out recipes and proving we don't need special machinery. 

This recipe is copied from

2 eggs
2 tbsp oil
1 1/4 cup milk
1 cup flour
Pinch of salt

(Should make 10 crepes) 

Mix until there are no lumps or very minimal. I mixed with a whisk for about 4 minutes. I had doubled the batch as shown above. Place the mixture into the fridge for one hour. If the mixture seems a little thick, add a bit more milk. 

After the hour, get your frying pan ready and lightly oiled, take 1/4 cup measuring scoop. Lift the pan off the heat with one hand and pour the batter into the pan that has been preheated on medium heat (5).
As you are pouring rotate the pan in a circular motion and get as flat and evenly placed as you can. Then place back on the heat it takes about 45 -60 seconds and then flip, get very lightly browned and keep making more. 

Top with whatever you like. Cream, berries, jam, syrup, wrap them, roll them and enjoy:) 

If you look at the batter on the pan, some is changing color from the heat, once it is all the same yellow-y color you are allowed to flip, but you can also cook a bit longer.
Evenly colored
Oodles of crepes.
