We celebrated one of my son's 16th birthday Friday night and had a lot of family members and friends come for the event.  A few stayed until parents and Caleb.  Caleb asked if he could make crepes for us for Saturday morning.  Of course we said yes!  We always welcome anyone who would like to cook for us! :)  I think I may have made crepes high school home ec class, but that's been a looooonnnngggg time!

The crepes were DELICIOUS!!  The whole family agreed!

1 cup flour
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/4 t. salt
2 tablespoons butter 

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and the eggs.  Gradually add in the milk and water stirring to combine.  Add the salt and butter; beat until smooth.

Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat.  Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle using approximately 1/2 cup for each crepe.  Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.

Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes until the bottom is light brown.  Loosen with a spatula, turn and cook the other side.  Serve hot with desired fillings.

For fillings, we had Nutella, strawberries, kiwi, bananas, grapes, blueberries, raspberries, and whipped topping. My daughter got the fillings ready to go in the crepes, then enjoyed making a few of them to show you (and for us to eat).
This is before rolling up the crepe like a taco or enchilada.  Such an elegant, but easy recipe!
Not sure this one was able to roll up, but it sure is pretty!
And finally, my daughter thought it would be neat to make cut-out shapes with the crepes.  See the two stars at the front of the plate.  A red, white and blue (with Nutella drizzled across the top) for a Patriotic crepe.

Thanks for the great recipe, Caleb!
