Tips or Notes:

  • Let the batter rest for at least 30 minutes to allow the flour to fully hydrate and the bubbles to settle. This results in smoother crepes.
  • Use a non-stick skillet or crepe pan for best results. If using a regular skillet, make sure to butter or oil it lightly between each crepe.
  • Adjust the amount of sugar in the batter to your preference. More sugar will result in slightly sweeter crepes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make the crepes ahead of time?

Yes, you can make crepes ahead of time and store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Reheat them in a warm skillet or microwave before filling and serving.

Can I use a different type of milk?

Yes, you can use alternative milk such as almond milk, soy milk, or oat milk in place of regular milk if you have dietary preferences or restrictions.

Ingredients

  • For the Crepe Batter:
  • 1 cup 1 (125g) all-purpose flour

  • 2 large 2 eggs

  • 1 1/2 cups 1 1/2 (360ml) milk

  • 2 tablespoons 2 unsalted butter, melted

  • 1 tablespoon 1 granulated sugar (optional)

  • A pinch of salt

  • For Cooking and Filling:
  • Butter or oil for greasing the skillet

  • Your choice of fillings (e.g., Nutella, fresh fruit, jam, ham, cheese, etc.)

Directions

  • For the Crepe Batter:
  • In a blender or mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, eggs, milk, melted butter, granulated sugar (if using), and a pinch of salt.
  • Blend or whisk the ingredients until the batter is smooth and there are no lumps. If using a blender, let the batter rest for 30 minutes to allow bubbles to settle.
  • To Cook the Crepes:
  • Heat a non-stick skillet or crepe pan over medium-high heat. Lightly grease the skillet with butter or oil.
  • Pour a small ladleful (about 1/4 cup) of crepe batter into the center of the skillet.
  • Quickly swirl the skillet to spread the batter evenly and thinly, covering the bottom.
  • Cook the crepe for about 1-2 minutes or until the edges start to lift and the bottom is golden brown.
  • Carefully flip the crepe using a spatula and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until the other side is golden brown.
  • Remove the cooked crepe from the skillet and place it on a plate. Repeat the process with the remaining batter, greasing the skillet as needed.
  • To Serve:
  • Fill your crepes with your choice of sweet or savory fillings.
  • Fold or roll the crepes, and serve them hot.
