Crepes are a great breakfast for slumber parties!
Just add your favorite filling such as jelly, peanut butter, nutella and dust a sprinkle of powdered sugar or fill with fresh fruit and add a dab of cool whip on top and a drizzle of chocolate or syrup.

Tips and Suggestions
- One recommendation I read, was to let the batter set for 30 minutes before cooking. I believe it is to let all the flavors meld together. We didn't wait and they were still excellent.
- This batter can be made the night before and refrigerated. It will keep for two days. If it separates, just gently whisk and use.
- I added a couple tablespoons of milk to make it a slightly thinner consistency. It makes a thinner crepe. Some people add water instead.
- I added a tiny dab of butter before making each one but you can just spray your pan every so often.
- If you don't mind waiting, eating the crepes as they come out of the pan taste the best. The edges are slightly crispy which makes it have a nice texture. The first time I made a stack and held it in the microwave which kept it warm but the edges lost the crispiness and has a more "rubbery" texture. Girls LOVED it with the crispy edges and ate 3 each!
- I lifted the pan from the heat and poured the batter in a ring and tilted it until it was "filled" in.
- Cook the first side slightly longer than when you flip.
