Basic Crêpes Recipe

Crepes are just a thin pancake and the best part is that you can add any of your favourite toppings to these crepes! They can be eaten with either savoury or sweet toppings - classics include nutella or lemon and sugar but why not experiment with some of your own favourite flavours.

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • Butter or margarine, for frying


  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and the eggs.
  2. Gradually add in the milk and water, stirring to combine.
  3. Add the salt and butter; beat until smooth.
  4. Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium high heat and melt butter. Add the batter into the pan, using approximately 1/4 cup for each crepe.
  5. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.
  6. Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown.
  7. Loosen with a spatula, turn and cook the other side. Serve hot.
