My French crêpe recipe

I’m a self-proclaimed bad cook but as a French person, you can trust me on a few things when it comes to recipes. One of them is crêpes. I know how to make French crêpes really well. Like everyone else in France I was taught to make them in elementary school.
Ok let’s get straight to it!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 2 teaspoon of sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup of butter
  • 16 oz of milk
  • a pinch of salt

Make a well.

This is what your pâte à crêpes (batter) should look like. Fluid.

 

Directions:

  1. Stir together the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, and salt

  2. In a separate bowl, whisk your 4 eggs

  3. Create a well to pour your whisked eggs into (see picture 2)

  4. Slowly incorporate the flour by stirring gently with a wooden spoon

  5. Once your mixture is thick, slowly add the milk and use a whisk to slowly mix it

  6. When you’re done, your pâte à crêpes should be fluid without any grumeaux (chunks)

  7. If it’s still too thick, slowly add more milk – it should look like picture 3

  8. Add the butter and stir

  9. Get your pan hot on med-high, and pour a small ladle of pâte à crêpes on the surface. Make a circular motion to spread your pâte à crêpes all over the pan into a thin layer.

  10. When the outside of your crepe is beginning to turn brown, flip it.

  11. Cook for 1 minute on that side, and that’s it! Rinse and repeat until your pâte à crêpes is gone.

  12. Add your favorite toppings: Nutella, bananas, strawberries, blueberries, powdered sugar, jam… Get creative! 🙂

Et voilà! Bon appétit!
