Easy Maple Crepes

3 large eggs
3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup bourbon barrel-aged maple syrup (or grade A dark robust maple syrup), plus a few tablespoons for drizzling 
3/4 cup whole milk
1 teaspoon canola oil
pinch of salt
butter, for greasing pan
optional fillings, such as Nutella and bananas or berries

In a medium-sized bowl, mix together eggs, maple syrup, milk and oil. When wet ingredients are uniform in color, whisk in the flour and salt. Continue mixing until batter is smooth. Heat a skillet over medium-low heat. Add a little butter to coat pan and then drop 1/4 to 1/3 cup of batter on the skillet, tilting the pan to make a nice circle. When you start to see bubbles coming to the top, flip the crepe over and continue cooking for about 20 seconds. Once finished, pull the crepe off the skillet, stuff with your favorite fillings (or just roll it up) and drizzle maple syrup on top.
