How To Make Delicious Crepes
What are crepes?
Crepes are simply a thinner, lighter version of a pancake. In France, crepes are enthusiastically received any time of day – be it breakfast, lunch or dinner. These French-style pancakes look intimidating but are very easy to make. They're actually easier than pancakes!

You can enjoy them as a savory or sweet treat. Crepes can be lined with ham and eggs or filled with chocolate spread, jam and even chunks of real fruit.
What You'll Need:
Makes 8-10 Crepes
- 1 cup (120 g) of All Purpose Flour
- 1 tbsp (13 g) sugar
- pinch of salt
- 2 eggs, beaten well
- 2 cups (475 ml) of milk
- 4 tbsp (60 ml) melted butter
- assorted jams for filling
- powdered sugar for dusting
- grapeseed oil for greasing pan (or some other non-flavored oil like vegetable oil or canola oil)
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Put a cup of flour in a bowl.
Add 2 cups of milk into the flour then whisk until there are no lumps.
Note: Make sure to make your batter as smooth as possible because lumps on crepes are not a good thing and will make cooking them difficult.
Add 1 tbsp of sugar and a pinch of salt into the batter. Mix well.
Get 2 eggs and make sure that they are nicely beaten.
Add the beaten eggs into the batter. Eggs should be well-beaten to make the batter as smooth as possible.
Add melted butter into your batter and whisk until your ingredients are well incorporated. Your crepe batter is officially ready to be ladled onto that griddle!
It's time to ready your pan/griddle. A crepe griddle looks like this.
Tip #1: The best pan to use in order to achieve an evenly thin crepe is a 12 inch, non-stick skillet.
Tip #2: Use grapeseed oil or any non-flavored oil like vegetable oil or canola oil. Put a little bit on a paper towel then rub the whole pan throughout.
Start with a small amount of batter. You don't want to overdo it! As soon as the batter hits the pan, take your pan and start moving it all around to evenly distribute the batter.
When the edges are nice and golden brown and the batter in the center is beginning to dry, then it's time to flip your crepe. Get a long metal spatula then release the crepe from the pan to loosen it and make it easier to flip.
Use your fingers to flip the crepe as its the easiest and best way to do it. Or, if you're afraid you might burn your fingers you can either try flipping it with your spatula or using your pan.
Let the other side cook for about 30-40 seconds then take your crepe out of the pan.
And that's it! Now that you have a delicious crepe on hand, you can put your favorite spread or filling into it or just enjoy your crepe as it is!
The good thing about crepes is that they're not just for breakfast or as a snack, but can be served as dessert for a dinner party. Put some nutella, whipped cream, and fresh strawberries and bananas, dust it with some powdered sugar, then drizzle some homemade chocolate sauce on top and get ready to hear the compliments from your guests pour in.
