I had never made crepes before, but wanted to try and this recipe looked easy. Boy, is it ever. And the crepes were absolutely delicious even though I omitted the butter and used 1 percent milk. Next time, which will be today, I think I'll cut out the sugar, too, since I'll probably use some savory fillings rather than sweet. Thanks for a recipe that will become a standard in our house.
Fantastic recipe. So much easier not flipping them over. I added vanilla for dessert crepes.
I mix mine differently. I let the butter cool and slowly add it to the eggs while whisking the whole time to not cook the eggs. Then I add the milk, this makes a more smooth batter. I let the batter rest for at least 1 hour, preferably wait overnight, and then use it. Much easier to handle when it has time to rest. Omit the sugar and change things up for a savory crepe.
I make a low-fat version of this recipe every Sunday. It's become a family tradition. My modifications: I use Splenda instead of sugar. I use skim milk instead of regular milk. I use egg beaters instead of eggs. I skip the butter entirely (used to use a substitute, but I just don't find it necessary). I add cocoa to the recipe, approximately 1 tbsp, to add a richer, chocolate flavor. I've made both the full-fat version and the low-fat version, and as the low-fat is a bit lighter, my family seems to prefer it (then again, we're all pretty accustomed to lighter tastes, so if you're used to heavier foods, I'm sure you'd prefer the full-fat version).
I was really impressed with the way this made the perfect crepe. I only had one mistake and that was because the pan was too hot. I would take the pan off the heat in between crepes to allow it to cool and then pour the fresh batter in. I did have to add oil one time as well. I just used the Crisco spray on the pan and it worked great. Anyway made a very nice Chrstmas crepe with mixed berries. Thank you!
great recipe. I only used 1Tbsp of sugar and about half the butter.. and still turned out great. I always eat these with maple syrup like my French Canadian grandmother used to do. mmm.
these crepes where so good when i had them they were the best
Wow, this is a dangerous recipe for me to have! I'm not the best at making pancakes but these were actually easier to make and turned out just right. I love that you don't need to flip them! I filled half with nutella and bananas and the other half with cream cheese and berries.
Great recipe! I made these one afternoon for my family, and within 10 minutes they were all gone. I used Swiss cheese and turkey on the crepes, and they turned out fantastic! This crepe recipe is simple yet delicious.
Awesome recipe !!!! Very easy to make thanks for the no flip tip !!!!
extremely easy and super delicious! Will keep this recipe. thank you!
