Crepes are really easy to master at home. We have been making these crepes for years and our family will never stop loving this recipe. Watch the video tutorial and you will be a crepe making pro in no time! You can even use this batter to make a Crepe Cake.

What Are French Crepes?

Crepes are essentially super-thin pancakes with no leavening and a beautiful lacy appearance. They can be served as sweet or savory crepes depending on how you fill them. French crepes are so popular that there are entire restaurants and French cafes devoted to making crepes.

Ingredients for making French Crepes with milk, water, eggs, flour, butter, sugar and salt

How to Make Easy Crepes:

This blender crepe recipe doesn’t get any easier. Make these once and you will have the process memorized.

  1. Blend all ingredients in a blender in the order they are listed.
  2. Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat, dot with butter.
  3. Add 1/4 cup batter while swirling the pan to coat the bottom.
  4. Flip the crepe when edges are golden and cook another 30 seconds.

Step by step how to make crepes in a blender and saute on a skillet

The Best Crepe Pan:

You don’t need a fancy crepe maker or even a crepe pan to make amazing crepes. We used a good non-stick skillet and thin spatula for years. Just be sure to keep a specific pan reserved for making crepes to keep it from getting scratched. Watch the video above for a demonstration on using these 3 types of pans for making crepes:

  1. 10″ Non-Stick Fry Pan – makes 12, 8-inch crepes
  2. 10″ Non-Stick Crepe Pan – makes 12, 8-inch crepes
  3. 28 cm Cast Iron Pan – makes 6, slightly thicker, 10-inch crepes

Pro Tip: To speed up the process, I always have 2 non-stick skillets going at once so there is no waiting time and my crepes are done twice as fast.

Crepe Filling Ideas:

For crepe parties or buffet lines where people build their own crepes, we love to serve with homemade Strawberry Sauce, or Cherry Sauce, fresh berries, and sour cream. If making savory crepes, reduce the sugar to 1 tsp. These are some of our all-time favorite crepe fillings:

How to Fold Crepes:

There is a variety of ways to fold a crepe and the right way to fold depends on your filling. Watch the crepes video tutorial above for a demonstration on all of these folding methods.

  1. Roll into a log – spread on the filling and roll it up. Cut in half if desired.
  2. Pannequets – squares or envelopes. Fold 2 edges towards the center then fold up the bottom and fold down the top.
  3. Burritos – fold in the edges slightly then roll up like a burrito.
  4. Fans – fold the crepe in half then fold in half again to create a fan or triangle.

Can I Substitute the Flour?

We have tested this half whole wheat flour and half all-purpose flour with great results. We have also had good success using a cup for cup gluten-free flour. If you experiment with any other flour varieties like buckwheat flour or any others, please let us know in the comments.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Add the ingredients into a blender in the order they are listed, starting with the wet ingredients. Blend on low speed until combined then set aside for a few minutes for the bubbles to go down.
  2. Melt a dot of butter in a 10-inch non-stick skillet over medium heat (2 skillets make the process go faster). Pour about 1/4 cup batter into the skillet, or enough to coat the bottom of the pan. As you are pouring the batter into the skillet, swirl the batter to evenly coat the bottom. Fill any gaps with a little more batter.
  3. Once the edges are golden, flip the crepe using a thin-edged spatula to easily get under the crepe. Sautee another 30 seconds or until the second side turns golden then turn the crepe out onto a clean cutting board.
  4. Repeat with the remaining batter, adding butter as needed. Once crepes are at room temp, they can be stacked.

    Hi Natasha,
    Why does the serving size say 12 crepes 8 inches in diameter when the direction say to use a 10 inch non stick skillet? Can you please clarify?
    Thanks!

      Hi Ashley, a 10″ skillet produces 8″ diameter crepes since the inside base is narrower than the full 10″ diameter of the skillet at the rim. I hope that makes sense.

    I gave these three stars because they came out more like omelettes than crepes. I would remake these again without so many eggs!

    3 stars still because they were delicious omelettes and we dressed them up with cheese and ham!

      Hi Hilary, it sounds like they were probably poured too heavy. If you pour too much into the pan, they will be too thick. You should only have enough to coat the pan. If your mixture was too thick, double check the measurements and see our post on how we measure ingredients that should help.

      I freeze crepes all the time. I put waxed paper squares between them, wrap them in foil and put them in a freezer bag. You can take a few out whenever you want them and defrost and heat them in a toaster oven. It takes very little time and they taste freshly made.

    Hi Natasha
    I’ve just made these French Crepes using 60/40 ratio plain flour/rye flour.
    It turned out beautifully – so soft and tasty. I ate it with French butter and maple syrup with a squeeze of lemon juice!
    It’s so easy to make I used a nonstick pan – only first pc needed buttering on the pan.
