– Add milk and egg mixture into mixing bowl 1 and whisk until it is almost a smooth batter.
– Let mixture stand for 30 minutes (Leave for longer if possible)
– Warm up the frying pan with a little butter to make it non-stick.
– Pour just enough mixture on the pan to cover the base (Just enough so you get perfectly thin rrepes)
