Simple and Delicious Crepes

These crepes recipe is very easy but it has one little secret

My grandmother knows how to cook amazing crepes without yeast - thin, ruddy, and very aromatic. For a very long time it didn't work out for me, and then I realized that if you change the process a little, then magic happens and the pancakes turn out to be perfect.

It's very simple, you need to beat the whites separately! It only takes 5 minutes, and the taste, texture, and appearance will change beyond recognition. The whipped whites give the batter a lot of air and the crepes turn out to be less dense, and many small holes appear on the surface, through which the filling loves to run away. Try it, you will definitely like it.
