Basic crepes are anything but boring. Plus, they're super easy to make without any special equipment needed. These homemade crepes are delicate, buttery, and the possibilities for filling them are practically endless!
In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. Whisk in the salt, sugar, and flour until well combined and no lumps remain; set batter aside to rest for 20 minutes (don’t skip this step!) Whisk once more before cooking.
Warm up a nonstick 10-inch pan over medium heat. Melt about 1 teaspoon of butter; when it starts to foam, ladle in 1/4 cup of batter in the center of the pan.
Immediately lift the pan from the burner and swirl it so the batter coats the bottom of the pan. Replace the pan on the burner and cook the crepe until the batter is just set and the underside is lightly golden, about 1 minute.
Using a spatula or your fingers, loosen the sides of the crepe and gently flip in the pan; cook for another 45 seconds.
Transfer crepes to a plate. Repeat until all batter is gone.
Roll up or fold into quarters.
Serve immediately with a few teaspoons of jam, melted chocolate, whipped cream, or a sprinkling of cinnamon and sugar!

If you want to make the crepes ahead of time and store them for later, wait for them to cool, stack (with pieces of parchment paper in between to prevent sticking), and place in a resealable plastic bag. They will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, or in the freezer for up to 2 months.
When defrosting them, thaw on a rack before gently peeling apart. To reheat, microwave each crepe for about 15 seconds each.
