Bananas Foster Crepes

CREPE BATTER INGREDIENTS

1 c. all purpose flour
2 eggs
1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. water
1/4 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. butter or margarine, melted

PROCEDURE
In a large mixing bowl with a wire whisk, or mixer, first combine flour and salt. Mix liquids, eggs and butter in a seperate container. Add dry ingredients. Beat until smooth. If too thick, add additional milk.

Measure flour and liquid carefully, since consistency of batter is important (it should be about the consistency of thick, heavy cream.) Spoon flour into 1 cup, measuring and level off with straight edge of knife or spatula. Can add cinnamon and nutmeg to taste if desired.
