I'd say this recipe makes a good standard-tasting large batch of crepes. The batter is not too thin or too thick and the flavor is easily tweakable (Ok, customizable). Read More

When I was a young boy my mother told me to abide by one rule and one rule only sanity is in the stem of the brocoli. My mother is crazy; regardless I now realize what she was saying all those years ago as she chanted "coo wacha la kema" at a dried leaf. When you come to a crossroads in your life take action. For me that was whether pursue my dream of mimicing rocks or write a review for these disgusting pancakes. To this day I think back to hours ago when I made that influencial decision and think i did it mom I made it. When I went into the journey of making these pancakes or at least that's what I thought they were I thought it was the journey that really matters no the destination. I was wrong. I began questioning this recipe when I almost drowned in the thin mixture. Luckly I had my floaties on and I survived to write this critical review. Only realizing when I began cooking this recipe shows no yeild I made too much for my little pet spider bill. These crepes tastes almost like omletes no the sweet pancakes I was hoping they'd be. I might just be a bigoted fool for not know what a crepe was but regardless it was a gelatinous disgusting mess. Anyone looking to make this recipe just remember sanity is the stem brocoli. Read More

Pretty good crepes. I like mine to taste more like vanilla so I'd add more next time. Unfortunately I made mine a little to thick in the pan. But they were good overall. Yum! Read More

This is a very good recipe but I found them a bit too thick. I added more milk and eliminated the sugar. When living in London I learned how to make the traditional English breakfast pancakes made on "Shrove Tuesday" before lent. They were similar but a bit thinner and did not have sugar added. They were buttered with fresh lemon and powdered sugar. Delicious! Read More

This was an easy recipe, but I had to double the milk to get the batter thin enough to work with. Read More
