1 c. all-purpose flour
2 Eggs (Brown eggs preferred.)
1 c.milk, either whole or low-fat

Directions:
Directions:
Put all the ingredients (minus the egg shells that you can discard) into a blender and mix. The batter should appear thinner than pancake mix.
Using a 8-9 in., non-stick, frying pan is best. Heat the pan medium-high with one patty of real butter until hot.
Using the blender container, pour about 2 tablespoons of batter directly into the pan center and immediately tilt and swirl the pan to spread the mixture as flat and thin as possible.
Cook over medium-high heat for about 60 seconds, or until golden underneath. (The top of the pancake will appear dry just before you turn it over.) Loosen the edge and flip the pancake over and cook for another 30 seconds, or so. Most important is to add one patty of butter to the pan before cooking each pancake. If you don't, you won't like the results.
Put the hot pancake on a paper towel covered plate to take up the oil. Sprinkle a little salt over the pancake. Eat, as is, or doctor it with strawberry preserves...roll and eat. (This crepe is so basic you can add all kinds of things from fish to meat as your imagination takes you.) If you have leftover batter, refrigerate the mix in the blender container for re-mixing later. Should be good for 2 days.

Grandma Lincoln taught me to make these when I was about 9 years old. She was my mother's mom....Bessie Palmer Lincoln. She died when I was about 15. After all these years I've come up with this easy, quick, and delicious way to make 'em....
