Ok, I tried Serious Eats crepes last night, for a first attempt, they went pretty well. Of course I served them with another Serious Eats shredded Mexican chicken. French/Mexican fusion? I mixed this recipe with a whisk and used it right away, next time I would go with a blender for a smoother batter. I will do more crepes!

No harm in that, in th grand scheme of things there are worse things you could eat.

Thank you for the idea. I have considered doing that with cake batter.

Cream cheese and lox crepe for me; mushroom, zucchini and carrot for the better half tonight. Served with tahini for both. Super easy, and absolutely made me feel like a chef.

I've been making my 3.5 year old daughter crepes lately. She loves them.

I've used this recipe a bunch of times with good results. It doesn't say it in the recipe but sift the sugar and flour.
It should be a thin batter.. I usually try to let it rest for at least an hour, but I've been fine using it immediately as well.
Getting the right heat on the pans takes a little trial and error. I've only ever used skillets. If you get a rhythm down you can juggle 3-4 pans at once so you don't have any down time waiting for them to cook. They will keep nicely for months if you wrap it well.
No need for a blender, but a nice rubber scraper is nice for helping flip them as can be a latex glove (or vinyl / nitrile) if you have normal fingers.

When you have written 7oz flour and 2.5oz sugar, are these volume or weight measurements?
