The perfect crepe recipe – SO easy to make and completely delicious! The best part about these crepes is they can be made right in your blender. Dessert too, although not only are they great for breakfast!
Crepes are one of my favorite things to enjoy for breakfast or brunch. They are really super easy, though they seem so fancy! We love making all types of crepes, like strawberry crepes, chocolate crepes, savory crepes and more.
This is in my opinion the best crepe recipe ever! I’ve tried so many different crepe recipes over the years and have finally created the perfect one. The batter allows you to get the thin crepe without them breaking. Crepes are great for breakfast or dessert (sometimes we’ll even do them for dinner)!
You can make them sweet and add delicious crepe fillings like berries, cream and powdered sugar. You can even make sweet variations like chocolate crepes. Or you can make them savory too. One of our favorites is adding scrambled eggs and bacon inside. YUM! The ingredients are pantry and fridge staples that you likely have at home. That’s
What I love about crepes. Nothing fancy needed to make this easy crepe recipe! Just the basics. : )
How to make crepes
Crepes are super quick and easy to make. It takes less than a minute to make the batter and only a couple of minutes for them to cook. Just follow the simple steps below to get started. Scroll down for the printable crepe step and recipe-by-step video tutorial.
In a blender, combine the milk, flour, eggs, vanilla, sugar, butter and salt. Mix until batter is smooth (about 15-20 seconds). Refrigerate batter for at least 30 minutes. Alternatively, overnight.
Spray non-stick cooking spray onto an 8-inch frying pan. Pour about 1/4 cup crepe batter into the pan and cook over medium-low heat. Turn pan immediately from side to side to form an even circle. Cook for about 1-2 minutes per side. Alternatively, until crepes are lightly browned.
Here’s a video if you want to see how to flip the crepes (skip to the middle).
Remove from heat and stack crepes until ready to serve. Add your favorite crepe fillings and enjoy! You can customize them with all your favorite toppings and go savory or sweet. That is
The best thing about crepes. My favorite way to eat crepes is with a little berries, bananas and nutella! Oh and can’t forget the whipped cream on top!
Ways to fold crepes:
Fold in half: This is an easy option for beginners! Simply fold the crepe in half, similar to folding an omelette. To add fillings, you can either add before folding the crepe in half or add on top of your folded crepe.
Make triangles: I love how elegant this looks! Gently fold the crepe in half, then fold in half again. Stack the folded crepes on top of each other to serve. Fillings can be added before folding or on top of crepe stack.
Roll the crepes: This is a fun way to sneak extra crepe filling inside. : ) Before rolling, add the filling evenly on top of crepe, leaving about 1/4 inch from the edges. Then fold one side over the filling towards the middle. Fold the other side all the way over the already folded side to make the shape of a burrito. Feel free to add extra toppings to your crepes once they’re rolled.
Keep warm, storage and freezing tips
To keep warm: You can keep your cooked crepes warm by placing them on a baking sheet in the oven at 175°F until ready to serve.
Leftovers: Add cooked crepes to a zip top bag and layer parchment or wax paper in between each crepe. Place in fridge until ready to enjoy.
To freeze: Crepes surprisingly freeze really well, so feel free to double the batch and stick half in the freezer for about 1-2 months.
Reheating: Heat in microwave or skillet until warm. If you prefer, you can also enjoy your crepes cold!
