So French! Making Crêpes

So we had a Crêpes party! My French friends taught me how to make these. They're SO good! With Ham & Cheese, or with Nutella, or with Caramel, or with Whipped Cream and Fruit.. YUM! :D

What you need:

Milk (and a little cream if you want :P)

(For measurements, google the recipe to know how much of what you need for how many people)

To serve:
White Chocolate
Whipped Cream
Fresh Berries

Assemble the ingredients for making the crepes.

Measure out the flour into the bowl.

Add the eggs to the flour.

Whisk it all together.

Slowly pour in the milk, whisking continuously.

If using Creme Fraiche, add that now. Keep whisking.

Melt the butter, add it into the batter.
Let the batter stand for about 1 - 2 hours. Do not disturb.

Heat a large flat pan till HOT. Wipe it with a paper towel dipped in oil so that there is a thin, even film of oil on the pan.

Take one ladle-full of the batter. 

Pour the batter into the pan. Tilt the pan all the way so that the batter makes a thin layer on the pan. Do not disturb.

When the edges of the Crêpe start slightly coming off the pan, slide a flat spatula under it and flip it over. Careful not to break it!

And voila! Its done. :D

To Serve:

My French friend made a sauce with Creme Fraiche to add onto our savoury crepes. So good!

Pour the creme fraiche into a bowl. Lightly beat.

Squeeze half a lemon into the creme fraiche.

Snip some chives into it. Mix together and its done!

Arrange the cheese.

Serve the ham.

Lay everything out. Savoury fillings as well as sweet - everything goes! :)

Here I only have a picture of a Crêpe with ham, cheese and the creme fraiche. Crêpes are amazing with Nutella and sweet fillings as well, but every time I tried to take a picture of a Crêpe with Nutella it got eaten before I could click it! :P
