Valentine's Breakfast of Champions

Here's what was served at my house for Valentine's Day breakfast.


Here's the recipe in case you want to make some.

2 beaten eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup all- purpose flour
1 tablespoon cooking oil
1/4 tsp salt

Place all ingredients in a bowl and beat until combined.  Heat a lightly greased 6 - in skillet; remove from hear.  Spoon in 2 tablespoons batter; lift and tilt skillet to spread batter.  Return to heat; brown on 1 side only. (Or cook in crepe maker following manufacturer's directions.)  Invert over paper towels; remove crepe.  Repeat with remaining batter, greasing skillet occasionally.

My adaptations: 

I mixed my batter in a blender-pulsing until combined.

I used a 10 in cast iron skillet, which I placed a little butter before adding batter.  I also increased batter to about 4 tablespoons.

You can tell when the crepe is done because the sides start to pull away from the pan.  I use a wooden spatula to pull up crepe and check for a lightly browned crepe.

Serve with your favorite fruit or jam.  This morning we used Nutella and bananas.  Strawberries and whip cream are also yummy.
