How To Make Easy Crepes (or Maybe Just Thin Pancakes)

I think I’ve found an awesome pancake recipe that I like better than the box mix … you can reliably turn out flat, even pancakes that roll well.

Not as thin as a traditional french crepe, because, for that you need a very hot/flat/round pan. But these still roll up well and I love doing that.

Rough proportions:
4Tbps all-purpose flour
1tsp corn flour
1-or-2 tsp brown sugar (or to taste)
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp baking soda
Mix with milk OR whey protein and warm water until smooth and thin batter is produced
Lightly oil pan, heat to medium-high, and pour on the batter. Experiment with smaller pancakes until you’ve got the heat right! Flip after bubbles appear near the center.

Top with whatever you want .. my current favorite as you can see is peanut butter and blueberries.
