Ingredients checklist


Step 1

Put the flour, eggs, and 150ml of the milk into a large bowl or jug. Beat to a smooth paste then stir in the remaining 150ml of milk and the brandy to make a thin batter. Use the batter straight away or refrigerate for up to 12 hours if you wish

Step 2

Put a little butter into a frying pan and get the pan nice and hot so that the butter covers the surface

Step 3

Stir the batter then spoon or pour some into the hot pan, rolling it out to the edges

Step 4

Cook the crêpe, loosening the edges until the base is golden. Turn it over and cook the other side

Step 5

Transfer the crêpes to a warm plate, until you are ready to serve them. Repeat until the batter is used
