Make perfect crepes every time!
Crepes are the best, don’t you think? Growing up we called them “sugar rolled pancakes”. I love making them on the weekends, when we have the time. Or you can always make them a head of time and warm them before serving. Having a great recipe is crucial, and this recipe is the best…perfect crepes every time.
The technique of making crepes can be intimidating…for years I thought I needed one of those special crepe makers where you dip the hot pan into the batter. Learn from my mistake…don’t buy that gadget! It’s a waste of money and of crepe batter…you don’t need it. You only need an 8 inch pan.
We made this fun video to show you how easy they are to make.
Do you like to roll them up or fold them into fourths? I grew up rolling them up, but I love the look of them folded into fourths. Any way you fold them, they’re delicious!
Perfect Crepes Every Time
Very thin pancakes you can make savory or sweet.
- 3 eggs
- 1 1/3 cup milk
- 1 cup flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoon melted butter cooled
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- *sugar for sprinkling
In a large mixing bowl combine the eggs, milk, flour, salt and slightly cooled melted butter. Add in the sugar and vanilla if making a sweet crepe. If making a savory crepe, leave the sugar and vanilla out.
Mix well with a wire whisk until well combined. Keep the whisk in the bowl and continue to mix the batter occasionally as you make the crepes.
Heat a 8" non-stick skillet to medium heat.
Use a paper towel to lightly grease the pan with butter.
Pour 1/2 cup of crepe batter into the pan and tilt pan so the batter covers the pan in a thin layer. Cook until the edges start to lightly brown, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Flip over and cook for a few more seconds until done.
Sprinkle about a 1/2 teaspoon of sugar over the crepe and roll them up, or fold them into fourths.
Keep them covered with tinfoil to keep them warm until they’re ready to serve.
Serve with fresh berries, powdered sugar, whipped cream or nutella!
