Ingredients

6 tbsp white flour (all purpose)   50 g
1 pinch salt   0.1 g
1 cup milk, partly skimmed, 2%   250 mL
4 eggs size large    
4 tsp canola oil   20 mL

Method

  1. Add the flour to a bowl. Add a pinch of salt and a small quantity of milk. Mix well with a whisk to avoid lumps. Incorporate the eggs, one at a time. Mix until smooth. Let the batter stand about 2 hours in the refrigerator, up to overnight.
  2. Lightly oil a 7-inch (18 cm) cast-iron skillet. Heat over low heat. Add about 1/4 cup of the batter to the skillet. Swirl it around so that it forms a thin layer.
  3. Cook about 1 min, until the top of the crêpe is dry. Turn it and cook the other side until lightly brown, no more than 1 min. The first crêpe almost never works, so discard it if necessary. Each egg yields about 3 crêpes.
  4. Keep the cooked crêpes on a dish, covering each crêpe with aluminum foil, not to let them dry. Serve right away or use later in another recipe.

Remarks

Crêpes may be covered with aluminum foil and wrapped in a plastic bag then frozen.
