The best Crepes ever Recipe

Experience the delight of French cuisine with this exquisite crepes recipe. Perfect for any occasion, these crepes are light, fluffy, and absolutely irresistible. Follow the simple instructions below to create the best crepes you’ve ever tasted.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
  • Butter or oil for cooking


  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, and salt until well combined.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs lightly, then add the milk and melted butter. If using vanilla extract, add it to the milk mixture.
  3. Gradually pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, whisking continuously to form a smooth batter. Ensure there are no lumps.
  4. Let the batter rest for at least 30 minutes at room temperature. This allows the flour to fully hydrate and results in a smoother texture.
  5. After resting, give the batter a gentle stir. If it has thickened too much, you can add a little more milk to achieve a pourable consistency.
  6. Heat a non-stick skillet or crepe pan over medium heat. Add a small amount of butter or oil and swirl it around to coat the bottom of the pan.
  7. Once the pan is hot, pour a small ladleful of batter into the center of the pan. Quickly tilt the pan in a circular motion to spread the batter thinly and evenly across the bottom.
  8. Cook the crepe for about 1-2 minutes, or until the edges begin to lightly brown and lift away from the pan.
  9. Carefully flip the crepe using a spatula, and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes on the other side until lightly golden.
  10. Remove the cooked crepe from the pan and place it on a plate. Continue cooking the remaining batter, stacking the crepes on top of each other as you go.
  11. Serve the crepes warm with your choice of sweet or savory fillings, such as Nutella and sliced strawberries, ham and cheese, or sautéed mushrooms and spinach.
  12. Enjoy the heavenly taste of these homemade crepes with your friends and family!

With this recipe, you’ll master the art of making delicious crepes that will impress everyone around your table. Bon appétit!
