    Additional Notes:
  • 12
    Blender method: Combine crêpe ingredients in blender container. Process 1 minute. Stop blender; scrape down sides of container. Process until smooth, about 30 seconds.
  • 13
    Make ahead: Crêpe batter can be made ahead. Refrigerate, covered, 2 hours or as long as overnight. Stir batter before using.
  • 14
    Storing cooked crêpes: Stack crêpes with waxed paper between them; refrigerate, covered, overnight. Or wrap stacked crêpes airtight; freeze up to 1 month. Defrost frozen crêpes in the refrigerator.
  • 15
    Browned butter variation: To add a special nutty flavor to your crêpes, brown the butter first. Heat 1/4 cup butter in 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until it melts and begins to foam. When foam subsides and butter turns golden brown, remove from heat. Watch carefully; butter can go from golden to burned very quickly. Let cool slightly before making batter.
