5. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours, or preferably overnight.
6. Heat an 8-inch, preferably non-stick skillet or and electric crepe maker.
7. To test whether pan is hot enough, sprinkle on a few drops of water on it. The drops should bounce about.
8. Lightly grease the pan with a little butter or margarine.
9. Using a measuring cup, pour about 1/4 cup of the batter, into the pan, and swirl the pan quickly to spread the batter evenly and cover bottom of pan.
