Tips

  • Let the batter rest for at least 15 minutes.
  • Check the temperature of the pan. Sprinkle a few drops of water on the surface to test the temperature of the crepe pan before cooking; If it sizzles, the pan is ready. Your pan or grill must be properly preheated before adding the crepes batter. Otherwise, the crepes will not brown properly and will be difficult to turn.
  • Instead of the milk in the recipe, you can choose almond milk, soy milk, or other plant-based milks. For more, you can check our ‘Types of Milk' article.
  • Measure the amount of flour correctly. If your crepes are like a belt; there are two reasons for this. The first is excess flour, the second is that the crepes cook too slowly.
  • You can use a hand blender instead of a whisk while beating the dough. It will be both quick and easy.
  • The batter will keep for up to 48 hours.
  • After they have cooled you can stack them and store in sealable plastic bags in the refrigerator for several days or in the freezer for up to two months. When using frozen crepes, thaw on a rack before gently peeling apart.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Put half the milk and water in a bowl and mix the ingredients.
  2. Add the flour, butter, and egg and continue mixing.
  3. Add the rest of the milk and whisk all of the ingredients until smooth, then pulse for 10 seconds.
  4. Place the crepe batter in the refrigerator for 1 hour. This allows the bubbles to subside, so the crepes will be less likely to tear during cooking.
  5. Heat a small non-stick pan. Oil the pan and remove the excess with a paper towel.
  6. Pour 1 ounce of batter into the center of the pan and swirl to spread it evenly. Cook for 30 seconds and flip the crepe. Cook for another 10 seconds, then transfer to a plate to cool.
  7. Continue until all the batter is gone.
  8. After cooling, you can consume it with the fruits or whipped cream you want.

What Are Crepes?

Crepes are sweet or savory foods made with flour, eggs, milk, butter, sugar, salt, and baking powder.

It is one of the most famous and beloved flavors of France. Before you eat the crepes, you should know that there is a special crepe day in France. The religious holiday known as La Chandeleur is celebrated on February 2. The tradition is to hold a gold coin in your left hand while tossing the crepe back into the air with the pan in your right hand and catching it. This symbolizes prosperity and wealth in the coming year. Why crepes? It was chosen because it is a good way to use the extra wheat before the new harvest.
