  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • ½ tsp white vinegar
  • ½ tsp salt

  2. Preheat a crêpe pan over medium-high heat. Pour a little oil on the pan. While tilting the pan, pour batter onto the pan to thinly and evenly cover the entire surface. When the edges turn golden, flip the pancake, and brown the other side. Place the pancake on a plate. Sprinkle with a little granulated sugar. Repeat with the remaining batter.
