Cinnamon Apple Crepes

What you need: 

Filling:
1 tablespoon vegan buttery spread
1 apple, sliced finely
1/8 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon Crepe:
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon flax meal, optional
1 tablespoon wheat germ, optional
pinch salt
1/2 ripe banana, mashed
1/4 cup nondairy milk
1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon almond extract (or vanilla, if you prefer)
1 tablespoon canola oil

What you do: 

1. For filling, heat vegan margaine in a skillet over medium heat. Add apple slices to the skillet; cook for about 4 minutes. Turn apples over; sprinkle with brown sugar, cinnamon and 1 tablespoon water. Stir until evenly coated, then continue cooking until the apples are soft, but still hold their shape (about 4 more minutes). Remove from heat, cover and set aside.
2. For crepes, in a mixing bowl, mix together flour, flax meal, wheat germ, and salt. Add well mashed banana to the mixing bowl along with the milk, 1/4 cup water, almond extract and canola oil. Beat until smooth. The batter needs to be an easily-poured consistency; if it's too thick, add 1 or 2 tablespoon water until it's the right consistency.
3. Heat a lightly oiled frying pan over medium heat. Pour about 1/2 cup crepe batter onto the frying pan, then tilt the pan with a circular motion to coat the surface evenly in a circle. Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a spatula, turn over and cook the other side.
4. Scoop 1/2 the apple filling onto the crepe. When the bottom side of the crepe finishes cooking, fold the crepe over the filling. Serve warm.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I don't know, things don't usually stick to my frying pan... I didn't use that much oil when I was frying the first pancake, so after it got stuck I used heaps more for the second pancake, but it still got stuck. I'm going to try a different frying pan some time soon, to see if that was the problem.

Did you oil the frying pan? That has always been enough for me, but maybe it also depends on the pan you use.

I tried making these this morning. And... It was a disaster!
Everything was going well until I started turning the pancake over. It stuck to the frying pan, so i had to pretty much scrape it out, bit by bit. I was so ashamed of my failure, I took my breakfast up to my room to eat it before anyone else could see it... It tasted really good, but the presentation really ruined everything - which is a shame, because I would really like to make some for my parents.
So, here is the big question: how can I prevent that from happening next time?
