I hate having to do conversion recipes, but here goes. Use 13 1/2 Tablespoons flour, 2 Tablespoons butter and 1 1/3 cups milk. These are extra special crepes that tasted delicious! Can't wait to share this with family members.

These crepes are wonderful. Soft, tender and delicious, with a lovely tart bite from the lemon. I served these amazing crepes with lemon juice, icing sugar, raspberry jam drizzle and a dollop of whipped cream. They are so good, I've made them twice in one week. Thank you for sharing a recipe that is quick and easy to make, I will be enjoying this recipe often. Made FYC tag game.
