Serves: 8


  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp. whole milk
  • 1 Tbsp. water
  • 1⁄4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 4 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1⁄2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. confectioners' sugar


  • Combine eggs, flour, milk, water, and salt in a blender, and mix to the consistency of thin cream. Refrigerate 2 hours.
  • Heat a small nonstick sauté pan over high heat. Add a teaspoon of butter, let it sizzle, then add enough batter to thinly coat the bottom of the pan. Cook, swirling the pan, 1 minute. Flip and cook the other side 1 minute, until golden brown. Turn onto a plate, and repeat with remaining batter. Additional butter is not necessary with each crepe, unless they start to stick.
  • Heat a dry skillet or griddle over medium-high heat. Place a crepe in the pan, add a small pat of butter (about 1 teaspoon), then sprinkle the surface generously with granulated sugar. When butter and sugar begin to melt together, fold crepe in half, warm for a moment, then fold again into quarters. Serve immediately, dusted with confectioners' sugar.
