Cooking Crepes

Crepes are crazy easy (and fast) to make, but given that you can buy them flat packed at the grocery store for $8.99 a pair or something ridiculous, I'm guessing some people don't know that… Here's how I make them…

Flour and milk, 1:1 ratio.
One egg per cup of flour.
Spice with a dash of salt, some sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon.

Ladel the mixture into a medium hot frying pan that's been buttered (and I butter it between crepes as well to make them nice and buttery-crinkly). Flip it after about a minute and a half (you'll be able to tell by looking at it, at least after a couple tries).

It's an easy recipe to make vegan because it doesn't need a binder (just take out the eggs basically, or use egg replacer if you prefer), and the recipe is really variable in general. If you want lighter crepes, cut the milk to 50/50 with water. Add more eggs or take away eggs. Spice it however you'd like… Some people put butter into the batter directly rather than frying it. Some people add a little baking soda to make them fluffier. You can adjust the flour/liquid ratio depending on how thin you like them. So many ways to make them, but any time I ask “what do you want for breakfast” this is always the answer I get, and they're always wolfed down.

  1. I love to make crepes. I do not make them very well. Something always seems to go wrong, but I will never stop trying. Thanks for the new recipe.
