  Plain flour 250 Milliliter
  Salt 1 Pinch
  Egg 1
  Egg yolk 1 (Extra)
  Oil 1 Tablespoon
  Milk 250 Milliliter
  Water 60 Milliliter
  Clarified butter/Oil 1 Tablespoon (For Cooking)

Sieve flour and salt into a mixing bowl.
Make a well in the centre and drop in the whole egg, egg yolk and add oil.
Using a wooden spoon, stir rapidly from the centre to blend egg etc. with a little flour.
As the mixture thickens, add the milk by degrees, stirring from the centre, and making bigger circular movements as more flour is incorporated.
When all the flour is blended, beat well and add remaining milk and water.
The resulting batter should be the consistency of thin cream.
Strain, cover, and allow to stand for at least 30 minutes, to enable the starch cells in the flour to swell and soften.
Stir thoroughly before using.
Heat crepe pan a little, add sufficient clarified butter or oil to cover the bottom liberally.
As the pan heats, tilt to allow butter or oil to run all over the surface.
Drain off superflous oil, leaving just a film in pan.
Pour in sufficient batter to run all over bottom of pan — about 1 tablespoon for a 14-15 cm (5 1/2-6-inch) pan.
Replace over heat and cook until the upper surface appears 'bubbly'.
Run a small palette knife around to loosen edges, slide knife under and turn or toss crepe over.
The side cooked first is served as the outer side.
Turn finished crepes on to a cooling rack, covered with a clean tea towel.
Stack slightly overlapping and wrap to keep warm.
