    The Most Basic Crepes Recipe

    Did you ever try making crepes but you weren’t successful making them? Here’s an easy recipe that has only 3 ingredients and with it you’ll make the most delicious crepes.

    The secret of making good crepes is not really in the batter, but in the pan and the temperature of your pan. Always choose a non stick pan when making crepes. When heating your pan, if you’re not sure how much your pan is heated here’s one tip: it’s better to bake your crepes on lower heat and to wait a little bit more, than to turn up the heat too high, to burn them on the outside and to make them stick to the pan.

    Many crepes recipes call for butter and sugar and you might be wondering why we’re not using them. The answer is that we find that the butter makes the crepes kind of oily and heavy and sugar is actually a tricky ingredient to use when you’re making crepes.

    Here’s why sugar is tricky in basic crepes recipe: If you don’t dissolve your sugar into the batter you’ll have grains of sugar that’ll easily burn. And even if you dissolve your sugar well into the batter, your crepes might still burn and stick to the pan. So for this reason it’s better to avoid adding sugar into your batter, especially if you haven’t made crepes before. Besides, we find that the Nutella or whatever sweet condiment you decide to use on your crepes is sweet enough and it doesn’t need the addition of one teaspoon of sugar into the batter.

    If you like, you can also use a mixture of milk and water to make the crepes even lighter. In that case, use 150 ml of milk and 200 ml milk. With this batter you’ll find that the crepes are lighter both in texture and in flavor.

    As you can see, you can enjoy your crepes sweet or savory depending on the filling. The savory crepes filled with white cheese (Sirene or Feta cheese) are a great alternative for pancakes, especially if you want to eat something savory in the morning. Also, you can make a few more in the morning, cover them with cling wrap and place them in the fridge. In the evening or the next day, if you want something sweet you can reheat them in a pan on a low heat and enjoy them savory or sweet.

    Steps

    1
    Done

    Mix the wet ingredients

    In a bowl, crack the egg and whisk it until it's well mixed. Add the milk and mix everything together until the mixture is smooth and combined.

    2
    Done

    Add the flour

    Sift the flour directly into the wet ingredients and add a pinch of salt. Whisk in the flour until well combined. At this point you can strain the mixture, but we find that if you whisk it well there shouldn't be any lumps.

    Heat the pan

    Take a non stick pan, grease it lightly with oil and wipe off the excess oil with paper towel. Heat the pan on medium high heat. Once it's heated pour around 1/8 cup of the batter and spread it quickly around in the pan.
