Crepe Batter (Yields 18 - 24 crepes)

2 cup sifted all purpose flour
3 eggs
1 cup milk
4 tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon salt

Whisk the eggs and flour together until well mixed. Gradually, whisk in the milk then finally the butter and salt. Cover the bowl and refrigerate batter for at least 10 minutes to let the gluten strands relax and the starch to absorb the milk.
Lightly wipe a 4 - 6 inch crepe or frying pan with oil or butter. Heat the pan and add just enough batter to lightly coat the pan's bottom. When the top of the crepe appears dry, turn out onto a plate and repeat process.
Crepe batter will keep for 2 - 3 days in your refrigerator. Finished crepes can be covered with plastic wrap and kept refrigerated for a week.
