Delicious and Easy Crepe Recipe
Crepes are something that I’ve always heard people rave about and I was so interested in figuring out why there was so much love surrounding them. I’ve ordered them two or three times at different restaurants before, but I could just tell that there was something not right about them. So what else would I do but start searching for recipes to make them myself. While I still have never had an “official” French crepe, this recipe is so delicious that we’ve been making them at least once a week! And, of course, I’m here to share it with you today so you can enjoy them too! :)
~1 cup milk
~1 cup water
~2 tsp butter (melted)
~1 tbsp sugar
~1 cup flour
~dash of salt
Whisk all of the dry ingredients until they are mixed together.
Add in the wet ingredients and continue mixing until smooth. The batter will be very liquidy and you can’t really overmix it, so don’t worry about that. Once it’s smooth, set it aside for about 20-30 minutes to allow the batter to settle. This will help prevent the crepes from being airy and fluffy like pancakes.
Heat a 10 inch pan a little under medium heat. It’s important that your pan is at a steady temperature before adding the batter because too high of heat will burn the crepes and too low will cause it to stick to the pan. Once your pan is at temperature, add in just enough butter to lightly coat it. Fill a ¼ measuring cup about halfway and pour the batter into the pan, tilting it so the batter completely covers the bottom.
Once the crepe is bubbling throughout and the edges are firm, it’s time to flip. The first crepe is usually always a tester and they get better after you know your temperature is right and there’s no excess butter in the pan.
One of the best things about crepes is the endless amount of options there are for stuff to fill them with. You can definitely make them savory, we’ve filled ours with eggs before and they were completely delicious. But since I have one of the biggest sweet tooths you could ever imagine, I always go for Nutella (or yogurt) and fruit. Then sprinkle powdered sugar on top (and maybe some chocolate syrup too) and stuff my face until I can’t even walk to the couch. They’re seriously that good!
This recipe makes about 10-12 crepes. I fill some of them right after cooking, but we’ve also put them in a tupperware in the fridge for a day or two and fill them later. I still can’t believe how easy they are to make and how minimal the ingredients are. The actual cooking part takes a little bit of time, but it is well worth it!
These crepes are definitely my newest obsession right now, I just can’t get enough! I’ve missed out on these for a whole 23 years of life, I have a lot of making up to do! I definitelyyy recommend giving these a try. Let me know if you make them yourself and I’d love to hear what your favorite fillings are. Hope you have a delightful weekend! :)
