Method

Whisk the eggs well and add the sugar, beat until light and fluffy.

Add the liqueur (if using), milk, salt and lemon zest and continue to beat the mixture.

Gently add the flour a little at a time, mix until its nice and smooth with no lumps

Place in the fridge to "rest" for about an hour,  then if necessary strain to remove any lumps.

Using a paper towel coat a heavy based frying pan or hot plate with a thin layer of olive oil, lard or butter.

Add a small amount of batter to the hot pan (start with two tablespoons). Spread it out to completely cover the pan.

After about 30 seconds, it should be ready to flip.  Don't flip too early, wait until the surface is no longer shiny and the edges are starting to brown, flip it too early it will tear.

When each crepe is  cooked, put in on a large plate and sprinkle sugar on top. Layer on top of one another, until you've used up all of the batter!

Tips -  The key to making good crepes is using a very hot pan.  Be prepared to loose your first one and adjust the temperature.
