How To Make A Basic Crepe

How To Make A Basic Crepe

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup low-fat milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
Whisk the flour and the eggs together in a large mixing bowl. Slowly stir in the milk and the water. Add the salt and butter, and beat the mixture until smooth.

If you have a crepe maker, you probably know what to do next. If you're not so lucky...

Heat a griddle or frying pan to medium. Give it a very light spray of cooking oil. Drop the crepe mixture onto the heated surface. Using about a 1/4 cup of batter for each crepe. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly. "Thin is in" when it comes to the layer of batter.

Cook each side until the golden brown brown (about 2 minutes for side one -- batter will bubble; and 1 minute for side 2). Gently remove and place on a plate. Place waxed paper between cooked crepes to prevent sticking.

This will make 8 crepes. 2 crepes make a serving.


One recipe and you can make a thousand different kinds of crepes. Use any filling or topping you can imagine. This is just a good basic, go-to crepe recipe.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Mr Breakfast for this recipe.

Try with lemon juice and sugar (not too much of each), then roll up and eat. Great for breakfast... English style!

Experiment: I added a heaping teaspoon of chopped fresh thyme and basil to the batter so they would be savory and then I filled them with cheesy scrambled eggs. Results: Success!

I've made this three times now! I'm finally getting perfect crepes each time. The trick is to tilt and turn the pan as you add the batter. I start with a 1/4 cup measuring cup, but usually only use about 3/4 of that. Stop adding batter when the bottom is coated and the crepes turn out each time. The amount of batter really depends on the size of your pan.

I add two teaspoon of sugar and 2 drops of vanilla to the batter if I'm making sweet crepes. I mix jam and cream cheese together for a quick filling.

I haven't tried this recipe yet but I'm planning to for dessert. I like how this recipe specifically tells everything you need to do, instead of "Put on stove and cook." This recipe is much more specific. I'm going to try topping the crepe with chocolate ice cream. Maybe some pieces of fruit inside...

Great recipe but I think this should call for 1/6 or a pinch of salt. 1/4 teaspoon just made the crepe a tiny bit salty.

Great recipe! I filled them with scrambled eggs with cheese and bacon. Plus we have some leftover crepes for dessert tonight.
