Perfect crepe recipe

These are in my opinion the perfect crepes. I’ve tried many different crepe recipes over the years and have finally created the perfect crepe recipe. The batter allows you to get the thin crepe without them breaking. Crepes are great for breakfast or dessert (sometimes we’ll even do them for dinner)!  You can even make them savory. One of our favorites is adding scrambled eggs and bacon inside. YUM!

These crepes are super easy to make and everyone always loves them. They also freeze well, so feel free to double the batch!


Perfect crepe recipe

Yield: 12-14 crepes


2 cups milk

4 eggs

3 Tablespoons butter,melted
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups flour, sifted


In a blender, combine all of the ingredients and mix until batter is smooth (about 15-20 seconds).
Spray non-stick cooking spray onto a 8 inch frying pan. Pour about 1/4 cup batter into the pan and cook over medium-low heat. Turn pan immediately from side to side to form an even circle. Cook for about 1-2 minutes per side, or until lightly browned. Remove from heat and stack until ready to serve.
Serve with your favorite toppings. Fresh fruit, jams, pudding, nutella, whipped topping and nuts are a few of our favorites.

My favorite way to eat crepes is with a little nutella, bananas and berries! Oh and can’t forget the cream!

In honor of The Hundred-Foot Journey coming out this weekend I decided to try making another fun version of crepes. Kufi is a much loved frozen Indian dessert, so I thought it would taste great inside of a French crepe. I made a very simple recipe to achieve the same flavor. Just mix these 3 ingredients below together and then spread inside your crepe. The flavor combination is phenomenal! Seriously!

  • 3/4 cup ice cream
  • 1 Tablespoon crushed pistachios
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

So let’s hear it … what’s your favorite way to eat crepes?

    I love crepes, but they’re so fragile that I’m afraid of having a huge mess of batter in the middle of my pan. I’ll definitely have to try this batter! I love the flavors in the Kufi dessert. I may just make that on it’s own sometime :)

      Crepes used to intimidate me too, but after the first 1-2, it gets easier! I’ve also seen these awesome crepe maker pans where you just dip it into the batter…genius!

    I love this post so much that it has inspired me to TRY again, mostly because of the confirmation of the responses above, that I am NOT alone! LOL I have been trying to explain to my husband that Crepes are evil! He doesn’t see how that’s possible because its so easy for him, fully cooperates in every aspect, right down to the last bite! But you see, just goes to show you that just because you are so frail and pure heavenly and the most sweetest thing ever and so “easy going” in the sense that you wear whatever you want and BABAANG! AND exhale…….. Sorry I’m just very very happy to see that I am so not the only one that was afraid of this small simple little thing! Thank you again ladies and now to attempt world peace….lol….I might have better luck with that then crepes lol.. aloha

    I made these today, accidentally leaving out the butter, but didn’t miss it. I also added a couple of tablespoons of ground flax and almond flour, just to give them a little extra nutritional value, and a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg, and cooked them in coconut oil. For filling, I spread half with Nutella and folded, then topped with bananas cooked down in a bit of maple syrup. Heavenly!

    Made these for breakfast this morning and they were perfect!
