The perfect crepe recipe -SO easy to make and completely delicious! The best part about these is they can be made right in your blender. Not only are these great for breakfast, but dessert too!Best crepe recipe

These are in my opinion the best crepe recipe. I’ve tried so 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!

How to make crepes

In a blender, combine the milk, eggs, butter, sugar, vanilla, salt and flour. 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. Here’s a video if you want to see how to flip (skip to the middle).

How to make crepes -so easy and delicious!

These crepes are super easy to make and everyone always loves them. They also freeze well, so feel free to double the batch! Here are some of my favorite things to fill them with.

Crepe fillings

  • Nutella, peanut butter and bananas
  • Ricotta or mascarpone with fresh berries
  • Dulce de leche
  • Brie with sweet honey
  • Peaches and cream
  • Brown sugar apples
  • Sautéed vegetables and eggs
  • Caprese (mozzarella, tomato and basil)
  • Ham and cheese

The best thing about crepes is you can customize them with all your favorite toppings and go savory or sweet.

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

Delicious crepe fillings

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

  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

  1. I love crepes! Especially with fresh berries! Pinned!

  2. I love these crepes, but I LOVE your new site!! It’s SO gorgeous!

  3. 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!

  4. Yummy! Thanks for the easy recipe…I love crepes and don’t make them enough!

  9. Thanks for catching the error, they’re are 4 eggs. Just edited the recipe :) 

  10. 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

  11. Love the recipe and the pictures ! Will definitely be trying this out ! One little comment though, its Kulfi and not Kufi!

  12. Nice one

  13. I loved these! I made crepes for the first time and they were soo soft and thin and yummy!! And i made it in literally 10 minutes! Thanks for the recipe! :D

  14. I just tried this recipe and it’s so easy and they take really good. I’ve always loved crepes!!!

  15. 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!

  16. Made these for breakfast this morning and they were perfect!

  17. Jamielyn, really awesome job with this recipe. We made it tonight and it came out delicious! Your photos are beautiful too!
