For the crepe batter:

1 cup (120 g) all-purpose flour

2 large eggs


1/2 cup (120 ml) milk

1/2 cup (120 ml) water

2 tablespoons (30 g) unsalted butter , melted

A pinch of salt

1 tablespoon sugar (for sweet crepes)


For the filling:

Choose according to your wishes. Here you can choose between savory and sweet fillings:


Sauteed mushrooms and spinach with a touch of garlic and thyme

Ham and melted Gruyere cheese


Smoked salmon with cream cheese and dill


Fresh strawberries and whipped cream

Nutella and banana slices

Lemon juice and sugar

Homemade salted caramel sauce



Prepare the dough:

In a mixer, combine flour, eggs, milk, water, melted butter, salt and sugar (for sweet crepes). Blend


until mixture is smooth (about 20 seconds). Let the dough rest in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

This standing time allows the flour to absorb the liquid, resulting in a more cohesive and tender crepe.

2.Cook the crepes:

Heat a non-stick frying pan or crepe maker over medium heat. Lightly grease the pan with butter.

Pour a small amount of batter into the center of the mold; Tilt the pan in a circular motion to spread

the batter thinly over the bottom.

Cook until the edges come away from the pan and the bottom is lightly browned, about 1 minute.

Use a spatula to flip the crepe over and let it cook on the other side for another 30 seconds.Place the

finished crepe on a plate and cover with a kitchen towel to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining


3. Fill and serve:

Place a flat crepe on a plate. Add the filling of your choice to half of the crepe and then fold it in half

or roll it.For savory crepes, you can briefly put them back in the pan to warm the filling.

Serve immediately, with additional toppings if desired.

Tips for perfection

It’s the consistency that matters: The dough should be very liquid, almost like a thick cream. If it is too

thick, add a little more milk or water until the desired consistency is reached.

Let the dough rest: Resting the dough is crucial for developing texture and flavor.Nonstick is key – use

a good nonstick skillet or crepe pan so your crepes slide out easily.

Keep them warm: Stack the cooked crepes on a plate under a tea towel to keep them warm and

pliable until ready to serve.

The finishing touches

To really make this meal an experience, pay attention to the atmosphere. Light candles for dinner or

play soft background music for breakfast. The beauty of crepes lies in their simplicity, which allows

you to dress them up or down depending on the occasion.Crepes aren’t just food; They are a canvas

for creativity, a vehicle for taste and a reason to gather around the table. With this recipe you don’t

just offer a meal, but invite you to savor the moment, savor every bite and create memories that last

long after the last crepe has been eaten. Enjoy the process, enjoy the variations and watch as this
