- Spray your frying pan. Heat it to medium low heat.
- Test your batter. Place a half tablespoon of crepe batter into heated pan. Tilt your pan in a circular motion. Your batter should move around your pan freely. If it does not, lower heat a touch. Once it does, remove your test batter from the pan.
- For each crepe, pour three to four tablespoons of batter into your heated pan. It should thinly coat the bottom of your pan. Cook for about one minute. Your crepe is ready to flip when it can be lifted without breaking.
