Step 1: You will need

  • 500 g flour
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 ltr milk
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • zest of 3 lemons
  • 100 g butter
  • 1 medium frying pan
  • 1 large bowl
  • 1 serving plate
  • 1 ladle
  • 1 whisk
  • 1 wooden spatula

Step 2: Make the mix

Put the flour into the large bowl. Add the eggs, salt and vegetable oil and mix together well. Gradually pour in the milk while whisking continuously and stir until it becomes uniform in colour and consistency. Finally, add the lemon zest and combine.

Step 3: Make the crepes

Turn the heat to medium to warm the frying pan, then add the butter and let it melt.

Ladle some of the crepe mix into the frying pan, just enough to make a thin layer. Move the frying pan in circles to evenly cover the pan with the mix.

Cook until the liquid starts to dry then turn the crepe and cook for about another minute. When ready, remove from the frying pan onto a serving plate.

Repeat the same sequence with every crepe until you use up all the mixture. When you finish, turn off the heat.

Step 4: Serve

Crepes can be served in many different ways - with fresh fruit fillings, cheese, ham or just sugar and lemon juice - the possibilities are endless.
