To make the french pancakes / crepes, add the milk, egg and then the flour and sugar and blend using an electric blender or food processor. Then stir in the melted butter. Or if a blender is not available, sift the flour, sugar and salt into a bowl. Add the eggs and beat well. Then add the milk gradually and beat to make a smooth thin batter. Then stir in the melted butter.

Heat a little oil in a large frying pan until hot. Pour or scoop the batter into the pan, using approximately 2 tablespoons for each crepe. Tip and rotate pan to spread batter as thinly as possible. Brown on both sides and serve hot.

Serve with any fruit / chocolate sauce / ice cream.
Dust with icing sugar to finish.
