    To make crepe batter, place flour and caster sugar in a bowl and make a well in the middle. Whisk eggs, coconut milk, milk and butter in a separate bowl. Pour egg mixture into the flour well and whisk until smooth. Batter should be the thickness of pouring cream (add more milk if it is too thick). Set aside for 10 minutes.

    To cook the crepes, heat a small frying pan over medium- high heat. Lightly grease with butter. Pour 1/4 cup crepe batter into the pan and swirl to coat the base. Cook for 2 minutes or until golden. Flip crepe over and cook for a further 30 seconds. Transfer to a plate and repeat with the remaining batter. Keep warm in a moderate oven.
