  • 2/3 cup 2% milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Preserves of your choice, optional


  1. In a blender, combine the milk, eggs, water and vanilla; cover and process until well blended. Combine the flour, confectioners' sugar, baking powder and salt; add to egg mixture. Cover and process until smooth.
  2. Heat a lightly greased 8-in. nonstick skillet over medium heat; pour 2 tablespoons batter into the center of skillet. Lift and tilt pan to coat bottom evenly. Cook until top appears dry; turn and cook 15-20 seconds longer. Remove to a wire rack.
  3. Repeat with remaining batter, greasing skillet as needed. If desired, spread preserves over crepes; roll up. Sprinkle with additional confectioners' sugar if desired.
