Making the Basic Crepes
Basic crepes are made from a simple batter of flour, milk, eggs, and butter, and can be filled with a variety of sweet or savory ingredients.

The crepe is then cooked until lightly browned on both sides and can be filled with a variety of ingredients such as Nutella, fresh fruit, whipped cream, cheese, ham, and vegetables.
