  • 1 cup flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup oil or melted butter

  2. Brush a hot crepe pan, 6 1/2 to 7 inches in diameter, with butter or oil. Pour in 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons batter, tipping pan to coat it with a thin layer. When edge of crepe starts to brown, turn crepe and brown other side. Repeat process, adding oil or butter as needed. Makes 12 crepes.
  3. Filling, Garnish and Assembly: Slice berries no more than 1 or 2 hours before serving. They must not be bruised or mushy. Toss them very gently with 1/2 cup brown sugar.
  4. At serving time drain berries and place 2/3 cup in center of each crepe. Top each with 2 tablespoons sour or whipped cream. Sprinkle each with 1 teaspoon brown sugar. Fold sides of crepe over center to enclose. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Top each crepe with 1 tablespoon sour or whipped cream. Sprinkle cream with 1 teaspoon brown sugar and top with a whole strawberry.
