Easy Crepe Recipe

It has been such a long time since I have posted a recipe on here so I thought I'd share one of my favorite crepe recipes. Its good savory or sweet and can be eaten anytime of the day. I love this recipe because it only requires four ingredients that most of us always have on hand.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 pinch salt

Now, I sometimes use whole wheat flour and soy milk with egg beaters to make it a bit healthier. Or at least it feels healthier to me :) You can also add in a tablespoon or so of flax seed for a boost. Just make sure to add a tiny bit more milk to balance out the consistency. 

The trick to making great crepes is to have batter that is whisked together really well. Make sure all of the dry ingredients are mixed in completely so that there are no dry clumps. 

Heat up your pan to medium-high heat. You want it hot enough so that butter will sizzle and melt quickly when you put a tab of it in the pan. Make sure your pan is covered with either butter or non stick cooking oil in between each crepe. 

Depending on the size of your pan you'll want to use a measuring cup or ladle to pour the crepe batter into the pan so that each crepe is about the same size and thickness. I would say smaller pans are typically better because the are easier to control. 

Once you pour the batter into the middle of the pan you'll want to swirl the pan around so that the crepe batter spreads out evenly and thinly over the entire surface of the pan. Do it quickly before the batter cooks. When you start to see the middle of the crepe begin to bubble a little or the edges of the crepe start to curl up a bit... it's time to flip that baby over. Like pancakes... the first crepe you make is usually your tester and often times doesn't come out great but it gives you an idea of how the crepe will cook. 

The great thing about crepes is that they go well with so many different foods. You can go the savory route and use cheese, spinach, egg, lox, mushrooms etc. You can also go the sweet route... (which I of course love) and use berries, fruit, jam, powdered sugar, honey, syrup, chocolate sauce or nutella. Personally, nutella with bananas and/or strawberries is my favorite. 

Happy crepe making friends! :)
