Crepes

pinch salt
30g butter

Melt butter
Sift the flour into a bowl, make a well in the middle, add lightly beaten eggs, cream and milk, mix until well combined. Beat in melted butter.Put in fridge to stand for 1 hour. Heat a skillet pan and then pour a small ladle of mixture in pan, brown lightly then turn. Makes about 8 crepes.

As a dessert you can spread with cream and strawberries and roll or fold over, blend some strawberries in the blender and add a wee drop icing sugar and maybe a wee drop water, strain strawberries to remove seeds, the pour over the crepes.
