How To Make Beginner’s Guide to Crepes

It may look difficult, but making crepes is simple and easy. Read on and learn how to make the perfect crepe for breakfast or dessert.

Preparation: 5 minutes
Cooking: 10 minutes
Cool Time: 1 day
Total: 1 day 15 minutes



  • 2tbspbutter,lukewarm
  • 1cupflour
  • 1tsphoney
  • tspsalt
  • cupsmilk
  • 2largeeggs
  • 1tspvanilla extract


  1. Add all ingredients to a blender and pulse for 5 seconds.

  2. Use a rubber spatula to scrape down the sides of the blender, then pulse for another 5 to 10 seconds or until the mixture is smooth and combined. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or up to 36 hours.

  3. Once you’re ready to cook the crepes, melt ¼ tablespoon butter in an 8-inch to 10-inch round saute pan over medium heat.

  4. Pour ¼ cup of the chilled crepe batter into the center of the saute pan.

  5. Immediately tilt and swirl the pan so that the batter forms a large circle.

  6. Let the batter cook for about 1 minute, or until the edges of the batter begin to slightly brown.

  7. Then carefully slip a thin spatula underneath the crepe, and flip it to the other side.

  8.  Cook for another 45 to 60 seconds, then transfer the crepe to a separate plate and set aside.

  9. Repeat with the remaining batter, adding extra butter to the pan occasionally when needed so that the crepes do not stick.

  10. Serve crepes immediately, filled and/or topped with your favorite ingredients.
