I was listening to a scientific cook the other day. The resting allows the gluten to develp the network and stiffen so that the batter holds the air when it is cooked. This probably not so important for crepes but very important for batter puddings and thicker pancakes.

Here's one I just came across this morning in this month's Cooking Light Magazine: MIXED BERRY CREPES

Oh, and if you run out of ideas, here's a list of about SIXTY MORE CREPES RECIPES.

Just so you know... crepes and pancakes are the same thing! Pancakes is in English and Crepes is spanish and french. So it has exactlly the same ingredients .

Here's a link to the recipe I use. The rum adds excellent flavor.

I just used the Good Eats recipe this morning. I don't know if crepes and jam for breakfast is a common thing, a Swiss thing, or just a family thing, but the crepes were pretty darn good. I remember my grandma (first generation Swiss-American) would make them with sour cream in the batter, but her recipe seems to have been misplaced.

Also, I recommend using a skillet larger than eight inches when trying to feed hungry people. Even with a short, one-minute cooking time, I couldn't keep up with the rate they were being eaten!

Lots of good recipes here, but I have a quick one that always works:
I hand the pancake mix to my wife and ask her to make pancakes. I know it sounds cruel, but no matter what she does they always turn out like crepes instead of pancakes.
Then again, she also preferes crepes to pancakes so maybe there is something subliminal there, LOL.
