    Take a large mixing bowl and whisk together the milk, vanilla extract and the eggs.  In another bowl, mix the flour with sugar and salt. Add these to the first bowl slowly. Melt butter in a pan and add to the bowl. Combine everything really well so that you have a smooth batter with no lumps.

    Place the crepe pan on the stove and let it become hot. Coat the base with vegetable oil. Now  tilt the cup of batter or use a large spoon to pour in ½ cup of it into the pan. Shake the pan to spread the batter to the edges so that it is a complete circle shape. Cook till you see bubbles forming under the crepe and the top starts to lift. Flip over and cook the other side. Remove the prepared crepe into a waiting platter. Make the rest of the crepes in the same way.  The crepe should be golden on both sides.

    When you are done with all the crepes, choose a topping to go with. You can serve with simple cheese and cream. However, addition of fresh fruits and ice cream can make the experience a lot more exotic.
