I use Julia Child’s recipe for the batter. When you blend all the ingredients it will thicken so add water to make it runny so you have a crepe and not a pancake. Crepes should be tender, thin and browned a little.
Here, I have made black Forrest ham and Swiss crepes with Hollandaise sauce and a sprinkle of parsley. It’s a perfect combination.

Below, my family’s favorite sweet crepe filled with a cooked and carameluzed mixture of sautéed bananas, brown sugar, spiced brown rum and butter. I like to fold the crepes differently when I am serving more than one kind.
