I recently made crepes with a crepe maker like this one. The first half of the recipe worked perfectly. Then, every time I dipped the base into the batter, when I removed it, the half cooked crepe would slide off into the pan of wet batter. Any suggestions?
If the first half of the recipe worked fine, it sounds like your crepe maker might be losing heat. Try giving the crepe maker a minute or two to reheat in the middle of your cooking.
Don't necessarily trust the ready indicator either. An infrared thermometer would help, but you can also drop a few drops of water on the grill. If the water quickly sizzles and evaporates, it should be ready.
