Crepes made with milk and beer. If the crepes are thicker than you'd like, thin the batter with additional milk, whisking it in gently.

Directions

  • In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk and beer. Gradually whisk in flour. Add the salt and oil, then whisk the batter vigorously for 3 to 5 minutes, so all is thoroughly incorporated. Let the batter sit for 1 hour.

  • Heat a 10 inch non-stick skillet over medium heat. Brush it with butter, and when it's hot but not smoking, pour a scant 1/3 cup of batter into the center of the skillet, and rotate it so the batter covers the bottom of the pan in a thin layer, pouring out any excess batter. Cook the crepe until it is just golden on one side, 1 to 2 minutes, turn it and cook until it is golden on the other side, about 30 seconds. Transfer to a plate, and keep warm by covering with aluminum foil. Continue until all of the batter is used.

I was a bit concerned about the beer...and it turns out rightly so. They were OK. My husband and our friend both beer drinkers loved them. I wasn't totally sold on them. The beer flavor really stood out. I filled the crepes with marinated beef cubes and mushrooms in a light sauce. We also made a dessert with pudding and chocolate sauce. I probably won't make them again. Read More

This is a great recipe but instead of using beer I use coconut milk and for fruity crepes I use cinnamon sugar and vanilla. Read More

This is a great quick recipe for crepes. I followed the directions exactly which I rarely do and they were perfect. I have a more traditional recipe for crepes that I make on special occassions but it takes a long time to prepare. This is perfect for those days when one wants crepes but does not want to spend hours in the kitchen. Read More

Not bad but I preferred Clare's. I did both of them for Pancake Tuesday and these turned out a bit spongy the other's were better... Read More

This makes great crepes both for salty and dessert crepes (so says my French husband as well). His only issue was that he had to add more milk just before frying them up to get the right consistency. We'll use this one again. Read More
