  • Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each crepe. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.

  • Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a spatula, turn and cook the other side. Stack the finished crepes by putting wax paper between each one. Keep covered with a dry cloth until ready to eat.

Made the best crepes ever! Note- if you refrigerate the dough for cooking later it becomes very gooey at the bottom and watery at the top so just stir it around until smooth again. It taste the same at fresh dough. Read More

I have made crepes before but not with butter. When I added the butter it created chunks of scrambled eggs in the batter. The batter was to thin so i had to add 2-3 tablespoons of flour. Crepes were okay but sticky Read More

This is a fantastic basic crepe recipe! The first time I made it exactly according to recipe. Yum. The second I added a little extra vanilla and sugar and filled with fresh strawberries. SUPER Yum! You could easily delete the vanilla and sugar as well, and add herbs and fill with cheese, meats or veggies for a yummy savory crepe. Read More

Lovely recipe! They came out beautifully and tasted scrumptious-- I filled with fruit & used a boysenberry topping. I've also changed the recipe (omitted vanilla & sugar) to use savoury fillings (onion potato etc.) topped with a melted garlic-chive Gloucester cheese sauce. Sweet or savoury these were perfect every time and a huge hit with everyone. Will place in my "favorite dish" rotation immediately!! Read More

Easy and versatile recipe for a healthier alternative I used whole wheat pastry flour Splenda skim milk omega-3 egg product and Becel margarine. I also added 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. They were perfect and delicious filled with low-fat cottage cheese strawberries and bananas! Read More

I loved making these. Extremely easy and they taste delicious. I added strawberries and banana's to mine and sprinkled some icing sugar and syrup on it. One thing ill add that I learnt while making these is to make sure to add a fair amount of oil to the pan to avoid making them stick. Also don't make them to thick.... mine turned out a little thick but ill know for next time:) Read More
