Steps to follow:


The first step to make crepes quickly is to put a small amount of olive oil on a pan and heat it. You can also use butter instead, but in this case you only need to heat the pan without adding the butter, you will do this later once the crepes dough is ready.


The next step is to mix the flour, sugar, egg and milk in a large bowl. Mix until you create a batter. Then slowly add the water until the batter is not too thick or too thin. The thicker the batter, the thicker the pancake. Continue mixing until there are no lumps in the batter. It is important to do this step well because if the batter is good you can make crepes faster and they will taste better.

Add about 1 tablespoon of butter to the hot pan, if you cook with butter. Once the butter melts, slowly pour the mixture into the pan to make a crepe. If the pan is large enough, you can make more than one pancake at a time. If you are cooking with oil, slowly pour the mixture into the pan with hot oil. Again, if the pan is large enough, you can make more than one pancake at a time, but make sure you pour then perfectly without them touching each other. Fry the pancakes for between two to four minutes.


Crepes are made very quickly, so when you notice that the dough becomes slightly solid and starts to create small bubbles, you must turn it around with the help of a spatula. Let the other side cook until slightly golden and wait for it to cook completely for a few seconds more. You'll know the crepe is ready when it gets a slightly golden tinge in the center. Take it off the heat carefully and place it on a plate.
