French Crepes

When my children were growing up we occasionally had short term
exchange students come to stay with us.
One summer we had a 14 year old boy from France.
He made crepes for us and left us with the recipe we use still today.
 I am particularly drawn to making crepes wrapped around ricotta or 
cream cheese when strawberries are in season.
Here is the recipe Stephane share with us.

French Crepes

6 eggs
3 tablespoons cooking oil
400 ml flour
small teaspoon salt
1/2 litre milk
1/4 litre water

Mix and rest for a few hours.
Melt a little butter in a crepe or fry pan,
when warm add a couple large tablespoons
and cook until done on both sides.

OK, now my mouth is watering for this deliciousness.

PS: This is the last day to sign up for the wonderful give away 
mentioned last Friday.

These look awesome Marilyn, I can taste them just looking at the picture! I need to know though, what the metric measurements are.

Mmm! My husband made pancakes for supper (for himself; I didn't care for any) but seeing the thin bit of batter left on the griddle made me hanker for crepes!
