Chocolate Crepe Batter

Recipe by Nif_H
READY IN: 1hr 20mins
YIELD: 12 crepes




  • Beat the eggs, then add the buttermilk and vanilla and mix well by hand or in an electric blender. We use a blender because it mixes well and is easy to pour from.
  • Sift the flour with the sugar and cocoa and slowly add to the egg and buttermilk mixture.
  • Stir in the melted butter or vegetable oil and blend thoroughly.
  • If beating by hand, strain the mixture through a sieve to remove any lumps.
  • Set aside and allow mixture to stand for at least an hour before using (my kids can't do that!). If the batter is too thick, add a little milk and mix.
  • Pour one or two tablespoons of the batter in the centre of a hot, nonstick frying pan. Tilt to spread the batter to the edges of the pan. Cook until the top is dry. Turn over and cook the other side for about 15 seconds. Don't worry if the first couple aren't perfect - those are the trial ones for me!
  • You can roll these with strawberries inside and top with whipped cream. Be adventuresome and try it with whatever sounds good with chocolate!
