Whole Wheat French Crepes

These can be used for desserts, breakfasts, snacks, even the main course! Refrigerate the batter for at least 1 hour before cooking.

3 eggs

2/3 cup milk

2 Tablespoons unsalted butter or margarine

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup whole wheat flour, sifted

Blend the eggs, milk, butter, and salt in an electric blender or food processor for 15 seconds; sprinkle in the flour and blend until smooth-about 30 seconds.

Cover loosely with plastic wrap; let stand for at least 1 hour refrigerated or at room temperature. (The flour will swell to make a softer batter.) Will keep, refrigerated, for up to 4 hours.

Brush butter on the bottom of a crepe pan or heavy 7-inch skillet. Set over moderate heat for about 30 seconds or until a drop of batter sizzles. Stir the batter well, pour 2 tablespoonfuls into the skillet, and quickly tip it back and forth so that the batter evenly coats the bottom. Cook until the crepe edges are golden brown-about 1 minute. Slide a spatula under the crepe, flip it over, and cook for about 30 seconds. Transfer to a warm plate. Repeat with the remaining batter, re-buttering the skillet when necessary.

Crepes can be cooled to room temperature, separated by sheets of wax paper, and stored. Refrigerate, wrapped tightly with plastic wrap, for up to 24 hours. Freeze, wrapped with aluminum foil and labeled, for up to 1 month.

Serve with Nutella, bananas, stewed cinnamon apples, whipped cream, plain white sugar, etc. for a sweet treat.
