French Crepe Recipe
This French Crepe Recipe makes the perfect weekend breakfast served traditional with lemon and sugar or maybe something a little more decadent like chocolate and banana.
- 1 Cup Flour
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 2 Eggs
- 1 1/4 Cup Milk
- 2 Tbsp Butter melted
In a medium sized mixing bowl sieve the flour and salt together. In a seperate smaller mixing bowl whisk together the eggs and milk.
Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients, a ⅓ at a time, whisking together until smooth. Pour the melted butter into the crepe batter and whisk until combined.
Cover the crepe batter with plastic wrap and leave in the fridge to rest overnight or if limited for time 1 hour.
Heat a large frying pan or crepe pan over medium heat. Grease the pan with melted butter and pour in about a ¼ cup of crepe batter. Use a crepe tool or tip the pan around to spread the batter evenly.
Cook the crepe for 30 seconds to a minute or until the top has set, flip the crepe using a spatula and cook for a further 30 seconds on the remaining side.
Serve your crepes filled with your favourite filling.
The Crepes will keep in the fridge for a few days, just keep them covered to stop them drying out.
There are so many different options for fillings - savoury and sweet!
Crepes do not contain any sugar. The fillings are what you use to sweeten or flavor.
