  • Melt some butter into a hot  non-stick pan (I set the dial to number 3 or 4).
  • Pour 1/3 cup. of batter into pan whilst constantly moving the pan to spread it evenly.
  • Sit the pan on the stove.
  • After about 2 minutes, when the pan is shaken and the crepe can slide around easily- flip the crepe and allow to cook for a further 30-60 seconds more on the other side.
