Vanilla Crepes

This is the breakfast that Aishwarya and Jai whipped up for mother's day. What I love about crepes is that you can make these is no time and make them the way you want...  A touch of sugar and vanilla makes great sweet crepes...some pepper and herbs make great veggie crepes. Both  are great for breakfast! Aishwarya and Jai made the sweet version; filled the crepes with my most favorite fruit of all,  mangoes and served me with a generous amount of whipped cream,just the way I love them. I couldn't take a better  picture as Aishwarya was urging me to taste it as she wanted to know how I liked it.
 1 1/2 cups milk
 2 eggs
 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
 2 tablespoons sugar
 1/2 teaspoon salt
 5 tablespoons melted butter
In a large bowl, mix together the milk, eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, sugar, salt and melted butter until well blended.
Heat a crepe pan over medium heat until hot. Coat with vegetable oil or cooking spray. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter into the pan and tip to spread the batter to the edges. When bubbles form on the top and the edges are dry, flip over and cook until lightly browned on the other side and edges are golden. Repeat with remaining batter.
Fill crepes with your favorite fruit, cream, caramel or even ice cream or cheese to serve.
This is the basic crepe, but if you want to have the veggie version  you can add some herbs and pepper to the mix and serve it with sauteed vegetables or whichever way you like your veggies.
