Crepes for only those you really love

I make crepes for Kate in the mornings whenever she asks.  It usually takes me about 15 minutes or so to get some fresh hot nutella crepes in her hands.    I usually make then without any butter as I’m a oil/fat freak.

Today I read an article on crepes on KQED Food Blog and I love this quote: Crepes are fabulous for breakfast. But only if you really love the people you’re making them for, or you love watching the sunrise.

for those who can’t wait to get started :”-)

I have a very simple crepe pan (12″) and I recently bought the wooden rake as well from Sur La Table. They recently started carrying it.

This $14.95 crepe pan and rake are available.. get the largest pan you can.

Tell you the truth, if the batter is of the right consistency and your stove top is not too hot, I usually just swirl the batter around to get it to spread correctly. The wooden rake is seldom useful.. This morning I used it maybe once.

I use a flat crepe pan with this spatula at the very bottom to flip

The recipe here is very similar to mine, but you have to also go by eye as well since eggs are of different sizes. I usually eyeball things and check the consistency.
