I always loved it when my mom made crepes at home, sometimes for breakfast on the weekends, but I remember enjoying them most at dinner time. This copy of the recipe is from my grandmother’s cookbook, but it seems to be accurate to what my mom’s were like.

French Crêpes
Makes:     10-12 crepes        Preheat Oven Temp:  N/A

Ingredients List
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs, well beaten
2/3 cup milk
1 Tb. shortening, melted


1 Sift flour and measure into a bowl, add the salt and sift again.
2 Combine beaten egg, milk and shortening. Add the flour and beat until smooth.
3 Pour enough batter onto a hot greased griddle to make a 4-5 inch pancake. Tip the pan to make the pancake as thin as possible.
4 Bake until browned, turning once to brown on both sides. Keep hot until all cakes are done.
5 Spread with jelly and roll up, then sprinkle with powdered sugar. Or – roll up plain pancakes and eat with butter and syrup.
