How can I make crepes out of pancake mix? Or is it better to make the batter from scratch?

Crepe batter is one of those deceptively simple things to make - very few, handy - ingredients, either whisked together or whirred in the blender. So why not do the real thing? I usually use Julia Child's master crepe recipe (for dessert crepes, I add a very small amount of sugar.) Here it is online: http://gratineeblog.com/2010/01/julia-childs-master-crepe-recipe/

Just looked further on the thread, and saw this urgent matter has already been addressed. Woops! Boy, that edit button would come in handy.

Make the batter from scratch. Pancake mix has chemical leaveners (like baking powder) that make the batter puff when it's cooked, so you'll never get a thin crepe if you use it..
