Whipped Cream Filled Crepes

Here's a Way to Impress Everyone with a fancy Dessert, learn to make Crepes, they are rather easy the Secret really is finding the Right Pan to Cook them in!!
This Recipes Makes about 8 nice Dessert Crepes

What you Need:
2 cups milk
1 1/3 cup flour
1 egg
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar

How to Make it:
First of all let me say that the secret to good crepes is a good skillet I like a nice curved sided skillet and not too big.How to make crepes in a regular frying pan, from scratch
Mix all those ingredients in a large bowl and whisk the mixture until lumps dissolve.

Heat frying pan until very hot (on high heat on stove top), spray it with oil spray and, using a soup ladle, pour small amount of batter into the frying pan as you roll the pan from side to side just enough to cover the bottom of the pan evenly with a thin layer of crepe batter. Depending on the size of your soup ladle, you could use a whole ladle-full, or less. It also depends on the diameter of your skillet. The key is to cover the bottom of the pan with just a slightly thick layer of batter, don’t coat it too thickly.

Let this thin layer of crepe batter cook for 1,2 or 3 minutes, depending on your pan (the subsequent crepes will require much less time to cook than the first time as the pan heats up even more), then flip the crepe to the other side and let it cook for another minute on the other side. This way, you cook each crepe 1-2 minutes on each side. To flip the crepe, pick up the sides of the crepe around its circumference, gradually reaching towards the center of the crepe from all sides, until the crepe separates from the pan. How to know when it’s time to flip the crepe? When you pour the batter, it will be wet in the frying pan but gradually bubbles will be forming and batter will start to dry. When it’s all bubbles and no liquid batter – it’s time to flip!

When you cook crepes, your frying pan is always on pretty high heat. This will minimize sticking.
Pile your crepes on a plate covered until ready to serve them
I filled these Crepes with Fresh Made Whipped Cream and Strawberry Filling but you can use many different toppings and fillings.
Enjoy the Oohs and Ahhs you get and they really taste Scrumptious
