At our house homemade crepes is a Saturday morning ritual! I started making these crepes when my kids were young, and personally I find them easier to whip up than pancakes! They are great for a fun weekend breakfast or you can go the savory route as well with my Chicken and Mushroom Crepes Recipe, which is a great one for a dinner party.
WATCH MY VIDEO BELOW FOR ALL MY CREPE MAKING TIPS!
You can serve them for breakfast slathered with jam.
Or as a snack with some Nutella!
However, the way I like them best is with fresh lemon juice, butter and powdered sugar! SO good!
Still feeling intimidated by the process? Don’t be! It’s easier than you think! You can watch my video tutorial on this Foolproof Crepe Recipe above!

- 1 cup (120 g) of All Purpose Flour
- 1 tbsp (13 g) sugar
- pinch of salt
- 2 eggs, beaten well
- 2 cups (475 ml) of milk
- 4 tbsp (60 ml) melted butter
- assorted jams for filling
- powdered sugar for dusting
- grapeseed oil for greasing pan (or some other non-flavored oil like vegetable oil or canola oil)
- In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar and salt. Then pour in the milk, and whisk until very smooth. Then add the beaten eggs, and then add the melted butter.
- Dab some grapeseed oil on a paper towel and liberally grease a non-stick skillet that measures 9 ½ inches at the bottom (total circumference of pan will be around 12 inches). Heat pan on medium high heat, until hot.
- Ladle out 1 serving of batter with a standard sized soup ladle. Swirl batter around the pan, until it completely covers the bottom, but does not ride up on the sides. Your crepe will be easier to flip and remain more uniform in shape if you prevent the batter from riding up.
- Once the batter looks dry on the top and the edges begin to turn golden brown, take a long , skinny metal spatula and slide it under all the sides, loosening it from the edge. Then raise up one side, gently grab it with your hands and flip!
- Cook for 30-40 seconds on the other side until golden brown. Spread inside with butter and jam, or butter and fresh lemon juice, fold in half, and then in quarters. Sprinkle with powdered sugar on top. And serve immediately
These are also great for dessert with my homemade chocolate sauce!
