Servings 8 Crepes


  • 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.
