Egg-Free Crepes

Egg-Free Crepes

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon white sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup butter - melted
  • 2 Tablespoons vanilla extract
There's a couple tricks to making the most of this recipe. The crepes are a bit more tender than those made with eggs, so you need to use a gently touch when flipping. The best utensil to use is a very thin spatula. You could also slide the crepe on to a plate and invert it back into the pan. Wait until the edges appear almost crisp before flipping. It'll feel like you're cooking too long, but the underside really won't be overly browned at that point. The longer you can cook the first side, the easier they are to flip.

As for taste... I thought they were great. I was worried the amount of vanilla would be too much, but it was just right. Once you add a topping or a filling, these are just as good as crepes made with eggs.

Egg-Free Crepes

How To Make Egg-Free Crepes

In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar and salt together.

In a medium bowl, mix together the milk, water, melted butter and vanilla.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and beat until the batter is smooth. Cover and refrigerate for one hour.

When ready to prepare...

Place a large skillet over medium-high heat and coat generously with cooking spray.

Dollop two Tablespoons of batter into the pan. Immediately start to swirl the pan over the heat to spread the batter into a large circle. When the edges of the crepe appear dry and lightly browned, flip the crepe and cook other side until lightly browned.

Repeat with remaining batter. You can store finished crepes in the oven set at 200 degrees - placing parchment paper between stacked crepes.

To serve...

Fold crepes and top with cinnamon and sugar; sugar and squeeze of lemon; or fill with what ever you like. For savory crepes, I recommend cutting the sugar in half in this recipe.

Crepes Made without Eggs

Note: The batter doesn't have to be refrigerated, but it does help the crepes stay together (plus they seem a little rubbery if you use the batter immediately).

No Eggs Crepe Recipe

For best results, let this batter rest in the refrigerator for at least an hour before making the crepes.

It was a bit hard to flip because they were so delicate and they were very chewy but they tasted great.

It's so good because I make this for my brother even though I am only 12. I recommend this for people with little kids.

The batter was too thick so I added water, then after refrigerating the batter, it wouldn't stay together when I flipped it. Still ended up really rubbery in texture, but tasted okay.

Mine turned out a little thicker than yours, but they were good. I'll add just a little more water to the batter next time.

Best recipe. I add a bit of extra water so they're not as thick and I cook it straight away.

I made them because I had no eggs, not because of an allergy or anything. So I can compare them to crepes with egg in the batter. They compared pretty good. Crepes with egg are a little better, but these are a close second.

I refrigerated the batter about 45 minutes, but they just didn't hold together to flip at all. I had rumpled crepe crumbles, but they did taste good.

Didn't like it as much as everyone else. Tasted like play dough.

This was an awesome recipe! I didn't refrigerate mine because I was running out of time but they turned out great still! Also, the batter was a little thick for me so I added a couple tbsp of water to thin it out and it spread on the pan much more easily!

Absolutely delicious. I used sourdough starter in place of some flour and we devoured them.
