For the crepes:
- Blend the flour with the eggs and the milk until smooth, season with salt and taste for correct seasoning.
- Preheat a non-stick skillet on medium heat, brush with soft butter to coat the bottom of the skillet and pour some batter in it just enough to coat the bottom of the skillet, make sure to cover the whole surface of the pan. Once the crepe is set flip it over and after a few seconds remove and place on a parchment paper to cool. Repeat until you have finished all the batter. The crepe should be very thin.
