For a fancy French breakfast, serve up some crepes! The batter for these thin pancakes can be mixed up in a blender in a flash. Roll them up with fresh berries and sprinkle with confectioners' sugar.

ingredients

• 2 cups milk
• 4 eggs
• 3 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
• 1 tablespoon sugar
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 1 1/2 cups flour
• confectioners' sugar
• maple syrup (optional)

step-by-step
1. Place the milk, eggs, melted butter, sugar, vanilla, salt, and flour into a blender. Blend until the batter is smooth.
2. note Melt a small of pat of butter in a frying pan over medium-low heat.
3. Pour about 1/4 cup batter into the pan. Turn the pan from side to side to make an even circle.
4. note Cook the crepe for about 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly browned. Then flip it over with a spatula and cook the other side for 1 to 2 more minutes. Continue making the crepes until all the batter is used up.
5. Place a crepe on a plate and add a handful of berries to the center. Roll it up and sprinkle with a little confectioners' sugar. Drizzle with a little maple syrup, if you'd like.
