    Heat a crepe pan or 18cm (base measurement) non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Brush with melted butter to lightly grease. Add 2 tablespoons of batter and tilt the pan in a circular motion, swirling the batter to cover the base. Cook for 2 minutes or until the edge begins to curl. Turn and cook for a further 1-2 minutes or until light golden. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat, in 11 more batches, with melted butter and remaining batter.
