No need to worry about complex crêpe-making! Gather these ingredients: eggs, milk, flour, butter and salt. Get ready to create scrumptious crêpes with them! That’s all you need to get started. Bon appétit!


Flour is a key component in baked goods. It adds texture, structure, and sweetness. There are many kinds of flour. Protein levels vary, which affects how much gluten forms when combined with liquid. The more gluten, the tougher the dough.

All-purpose flour is the most used. It has 10-12% protein, which creates a dough strong enough to rise without being too heavy. Bread flour is 12-14% protein, creating a strong dough for high-rising yeast breads. Cake flour is 8-10%, making cakes and pastries light and tender.

Other types include:

  • Self-rising flour
  • Pastry flour
  • Whole wheat flour
  • Ground nut flours

Knowing each kind helps recipes turn out perfect every time!


Milk is a must for crepes. Whole milk brings out the creamiest crepes, but you can choose lower-fat milks for a healthier option. Almond, oat and soy milks are excellent too. For fluffy crepes, add a bit of heavy cream. But don’t add too much liquid, or the crepes will be difficult to flip. Finally, make sure the milk is at room temperature before adding the baking powder.


Eggs are a must for crêpes. Get 2 big eggs or 4 small ones. Crack big eggs into a bowl and beat with a fork. For small eggs, crack them one at a time and beat each one. Once all eggs are in the bowl, mix until even.

Add wet ingredientsmilk and melted butter – to the egg mixture. Stir until smooth. Make sure ingredients are at room temp so they mix well!


Butter is a dairy product made by churning cream. It has a dairy flavor and aroma. It is used as a spread on bread or toast, for baking, for sauces, and more. You can store butter in the fridge or at room temperature. Keep it away from strong odors and seal it well after each use. Refrigerate it if you don’t eat it right away.

Butter has many variations: salted, sweet cream, Irish (cultured cream with higher fat), whipped (with air), and clarified (milk solids removed). Each type has its own properties, making it great for different uses in the kitchen.


Salt is important in crêpe recipes. It makes the other ingredients’ flavors stand out, and balances the sweetness of the batter. The right amount varies, depending on the type of crêpe. For savory ones, add a pinch more than for sweet. Don’t overdo it; too much salt can ruin the crêpes. If needed, you can adjust later!

Making crêpes at home isn’t hard! Just get some basic ingredients and use this recipe. You need all-purpose flour, eggs, milk, butter and a few extras. Here we go!

  1. Get all the things ready
  2. Start making yummy crêpes in your kitchen.

Mix the ingredients

Grab a medium-sized bowl. Mix the milk and eggs lightly with a whisk or fork. Add flour, sugar, and salt. Stir until there are no lumps. For extra flavor, add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1 tablespoon of melted butter, or a pinch of ground cinnamon. Let the batter rest.

Heat an 8 to 10 inch nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. Grease it lightly with cooking spray or butter. Pour ¼ cup of batter into the center of the skillet. Tilt the skillet until all sides are evenly covered with batter. Use a spatula if needed.

Cook for 3 minutes until lightly browned on one side. Flip over with a spatula or your hands. Cook for 2 more minutes. Take the crêpe off heat. Put it on a plate lined with parchment paper. Repeat until all the remaining batter is used up. Stack each finished crêpe onto parchment paper. Transfer to a platter!

Prepare the pan

Before making crêpes, prep the pan. Taking time to ensure it’s oiled and clean will help with each crêpe’s perfection.

  • Heat pan to medium-high. Lightly oil with veg. oil, butter, or cooking spray. Test if ready by dropping water. If it sizzles/evaporates fast, you’re good.
  • Take a ladle of batter and spread in thin layer with egg whisk or spatula. Adjust heat so batter cooks without burning or drying. Small bubbles usually disappear with more batter.
  • Small crêpes need to cook 1 min on either side. Bigger ones will need an extra min. Enjoy!

Cook the crêpes

Time to make crêpes! Heat a large non-stick skillet or crêpe pan over medium heat. Grease with butter or cooking spray. Pour in 2-3 tablespoons of batter, using a ¼ cup measuring cup. Swirl the batter around the pan. Tip the pan to spread it out thinly. Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side, until golden brown and crisp. Flip the crêpe with a rubber spatula.

Stack cooked crêpes on a plate and cover with foil. Keep them warm until serving.

Serve the crêpes

Finished cooking your crêpes? It’s time to serve. Put them on a plate. Add toppings as desired. Be creative with ingredients. Jam and mascarpone cheese? Banana and Nutella? Cinnamon and sugar? Sprinkle other flavors, too. Sweet? Powdered sugar. Savory? Herbs.

Crêpes can be made in advance. Store in fridge for 2-3 days. Reheat before serving. Enjoy!

Tips and Tricks

Crêpe-making made easy! You don’t have to be a pro in the kitchen to make delicious crêpes. Here are some tips and tricks to help you master them. For experienced cooks and beginners alike.

  1. Ensure your batter is the right consistency.
  2. Use a non-stick skillet for easy flipping and removal.
  3. Heat the skillet before adding the batter.
  4. Use a ladle to pour the right amount of batter.
  5. Turn the heat down once the crêpes are cooking.
  6. Flip the crêpes carefully.

Follow these steps and you’ll be making perfect crêpes every time!

Use a non-stick pan

Non-stick pans are the best way to make crêpes. They’ll cook the batter properly. Don’t put oil or butter in the pan; it’ll make the crêpes stick and break. Instead, add some butter for flavor and moisture after you’re done.

Be careful when handling your hot non-stick pan. Always wear an oven mitt!

Use a ladle to pour the batter

A ladle is great for pancakes! It helps you spread the batter evenly and achieve a neat finish. Keep the ladle just above the cooking surface – don’t touch it. Move the ladle in a circular motion around the edges of the cooking surface for all corners to be covered. There you go – perfectly cooked pancakes!

Flip the crêpes carefully

Flipping a crêpe can be tricky. Avoid tearing or ripping with these tips:

  • Prepare the pan with just enough oil or butter to coat the bottom and stop it from sticking.
  • Grip the edge of the crêpe with a spatula.
  • Lift gently in one swift motion.
  • Put it back down on the other side. This should take no more than a few seconds.

If done correctly, you will get a perfectly cooked crêpe!
