Homemade French Crepes Recipe
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 piece eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
- In a blender or food processor, combine the flour, eggs, milk, water, salt, and melted butter. Blend until the mixture is smooth and well combined.
- Let the crepe batter sit for at least 30 minutes, or up to 24 hours, in the refrigerator. This will help the crepes turn out thin and tender.
- Heat a small nonstick pan over medium heat. Lightly coat the pan with cooking spray or a small amount of butter.
- Pour about 1/4 cup of the crepe batter into the pan and tilt the pan to evenly spread the batter.
- Cook the crepe for 1-2 minutes, or until the bottom is lightly browned. Flip the crepe and cook for an additional 30 seconds, or until the other side is lightly browned.
- Repeat the process with the remaining crepe batter, stacking the finished crepes on a plate as you go.
- If you find that the crepes are too thick or not cooking evenly, try adding a little bit more water to the batter. The consistency should be thin and pourable.
- Make sure the pan is hot before adding the crepe batter. This will help the crepes cook evenly and quickly.
- If you have trouble flipping the crepes, try using a thin spatula or a crepe turner to gently lift the edges of the crepe and carefully slide it underneath.
- Crepes can be filled with a variety of sweet or savory fillings. Try spreading some Nutella and sliced bananas on a crepe for a sweet treat, or filling it with scrambled eggs and bacon for a savory breakfast option.

FAQs about Homemade French Crepes
What are French crêpes?
French crêpes are thin, delicate pancakes that originated in France. They are made from a simple batter of flour, eggs, milk, and butter, and are typically cooked on a flat griddle or skillet.
How do I make French crêpes?
To make French crêpes, you will need to prepare a batter by whisking together flour, eggs, milk, melted butter, and a pinch of salt. Allow the batter to rest for about 30 minutes. Then, heat a non-stick pan or crêpe pan over medium heat, lightly grease it, and pour a small amount of batter onto the pan, swirling it around to coat the surface evenly. Cook for about a minute until the edges start to brown, then flip the crêpe and cook for another 30 seconds. Repeat the process with the remaining batter.
Can I make gluten-free crêpes?
Yes, you can make gluten-free crêpes by using gluten-free flour blends or alternative flours such as rice flour, buckwheat flour, or almond flour. You may need to adjust the ratio of ingredients slightly to achieve the desired consistency.
What fillings or toppings can I use for French crêpes?
French crêpes can be filled or topped with a variety of sweet or savory ingredients. For sweet crêpes, popular options include Nutella, fresh fruits, whipped cream, chocolate sauce, or powdered sugar. Savory crêpes can be filled with ingredients like cheese, ham, spinach, mushrooms, or eggs. Be creative and experiment with different flavor combinations to suit your taste.
Can I prepare crêpes in advance?
Yes, you can prepare crêpes in advance. Once cooked, stack the crêpes on a plate with layers of parchment paper or plastic wrap in between to prevent sticking. Store them in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. When ready to serve, gently reheat the crêpes in a warm skillet or microwave.
