Best Ever Crepe Recipe

I love crepes and think the recipe I use is the best I’ve ever tried. My boyfriend is obsessed with them too. I posted a picture of the pancakes we ate on Shrove Tuesday and had a few people message to ask how I made them. Using these measurements, I made around 12 crepes and yes, we ate them all. I hate it when you look up a recipe and the blogger lists their entire life story before getting to the important info so here you are:

Ingredients

250g of Plain Flour

500ml of Milk

2 Eggs

1 tbsp of vegetable/olive oil

1 pinch of salt

Method

  1. Put the flour in a large mixing bowl and make a well
  2. Crack the eggs in the middle
  3. Add the oil, salt and a splash of milk
  4. Mix all the ingredients together
  5. Gradually add all the milk as you mix. If you want to add lemon, vanilla extract or liqueur, do it now
  6. Once combined, leave the mixture to rest for an hour
  7. When you’re ready to start cooking, add a splash of milk or water and mix to loosen the batter
  8. Heat a frying pan and add a knob of butter (you can use oil if you prefer)
  9. Use a ladle to measure out the perfect amount of mixture and add to the pan whilst moving it in a circular motion so the batter touches all the sides
  10. Fry on a medium heat for a few minutes before flipping over with a turner to cook the other side.

Tips

  1. Keep a large plate in the oven and as you make each pancake, pop them in there to keep warm until it’s time to serve.
  2. The oil/butter needs to be at a low/medium temperature or the batter will burn quickly.
  3. Don’t bother trying to toss the pancakes. Using a turner is absolutely fine and will result in less waste.
  4. Add chocolate chips, blueberries, banana etc…whilst the pancake is cooking to jazz it up
