1 ½ cups of all purpose flour
1 Tbsp of sugar
1 egg
generous ¾ cup milk

Wisk together all ingredients for 5 min. Test batter by dipping spoon in and seeing if it coats the back of the spoon evenly. Your batter should be very thin. You won’t be sure what I mean by thin until you start making them.

Heat a little oil in and skillet and let almost smoke then pour ½ cup of batter in the skillet and immediately start to tilt around your pan to make your crepe. Use your own judgment on how much batter to put in the pan.
 Give it a min and then turn it over and give it another min. 

Assume your first few crepes are a trail and error test.
Be patient it takes only practice now to get them right :)
