Crepes are really easy to master at home. We have been making these crepes for years and our family will never stop loving this recipe. Watch the video tutorial and you will be a crepe-making pro in no time! You can even use this batter to make a Crepe Cake.

What Are Crepes?

Crepes are essentially super-thin French-style pancakes with no leavening and a beautiful lacy appearance. Depending on how you fill them, they can be served as sweet or savory crepes. French crepes are so popular that there are entire restaurants and French cafes devoted to making crepes.

Crepes are so versatile! You can fill them, roll them, fold them, or serve them stacked with a variety of toppings at a crepe board or crepe bar as I shared in my Natasha’s Kitchen Cookbook.

How to Make Crepes

This blender crepe recipe doesn’t get any easier. Make these once and you will have the process memorized.

  • Blend all ingredients in a blender in the order they are listed.
  • Heat a crepe pan or good non-stick pan over medium heat, dot with butter, and spread the butter over the bottom of the pan (see my suggestions for the best crepe pan below).
  • Add 1/4 cup batter while swirling the pan to coat the bottom.
  • Flip the crepe when edges are golden and cook another 30 seconds.

What is the Best Pan for Crepes?

You don’t need a fancy crepe maker or even a crepe pan to make amazing crepes. We used a good non-stick skillet and thin spatula for years. Just be sure to keep a specific pan reserved for making crepes to keep it from getting scratched. Watch the video above for a demonstration on using these 3 types of pans for making crepes:

  • 10″ Non-Stick Fry Pan – makes 12, 8-inch crepes
  • 10″ Non-Stick Crepe Pan – makes 12, 8-inch crepes
  • 11″ Hexclad Crepe Pan – you could also use a regular HexClad skillet
  • Cast Iron Pan – this is my least favorite because the pan needs more butter, and crepes end up thicker (makes 6, 10-inch crepes)

Pro Tip:

To speed up the process, I always have 2 non-stick skillets going at once so there is no waiting time and my crepes are done twice as fast.

How to Serve Crepes

For crepe parties or buffet lines where people build their own crepes, we love to serve with homemade Strawberry Sauce, or Cherry Sauce, fresh berries, and sour cream. If making savory crepes, reduce the sugar to 1 tsp. These are some of our all-time favorite crepe fillings:

How to Fold Crepes

There is a variety of ways to fold a crepe and the right way to fold depends on your filling. Watch the crepes video tutorial above for a demonstration on all of these folding methods.

  1. Roll into a log – spread on the filling and roll it up. Cut in half if desired.
  2. Pannequets – squares or envelopes. Fold 2 edges towards the center then fold up the bottom and fold down the top.
  3. Burritos – fold in the edges slightly then roll up like a burrito.
  4. Fans – fold the crepe in half then fold in half again to create a fan or triangle.

Can I Substitute the Flour?

We have tested this half whole wheat flour and half all-purpose flour with great results. We have also had good success using a cup for cup gluten-free flour. If you experiment with any other flour varieties like buckwheat flour or any others, please let us know in the comments.
