Tools to Make French Crepes
Directions

1. In a blender combine 4 eggs.

2. Add 1 1/2 cups of milk. Gently blend for 5-10 seconds. 

Melted Butter

3. Melt 2 tbsp. butter. While the blender is going slowly add the melted butter so that is doesn’t curdle the milk.

4. Add 1 tbsp. white sugar, dash of salt. Gentle blend all ingredients.

5. Begin adding flour (approx. 1 cup) but add flour until the batter covers the back of a spoon, but is about the consistency of heavy cream.

6. It is best to cook the French Crepes with the batter cold. Either place batter in the fridge between cooking or pre make the batter the day before. I have stored batter for up to 3 days. You may need to give the batter a quick mix before cooking. 

Mixing French Crepe Batter

7. Heat up a large frying pan on medium heat. Spray with a cooking spray. You will need to re spray the pan between every other crepe.

8. You want the frying pan to be hot enough that when you pour in the batter it sizzles but not so hot that it instantly burns the crepe.

9. When you pour the batter into the pan drop batter into the centre of the pan and swirl the frying pan spread out the crepe batter. You need to be quick at doing this as the crepe will begin to cook and soon as it touches the frying pan.

10. Wait until the batter on the top is not longer runny and the bottom is brown and then flip the crepe. The crepe will only need to cook for a few moments on the second side.

French Crepe Fillings

The classic crepe filling in our household is fruit and whipped cream! Strawberries, raspberries, bananas are favorites. Then a large amount of whipped cream never hurts!

TIP - Add the fruit to the crepe before the whipped cream to help cool off the crepe so all of the whipped cream doesn't melt. 

A favorite filling the kids enjoy the most though is the Sugar Crepe! 

While the French Crepes are still warm spread butter over them. The butter should start to melt.

Next sprinkle with icing sugar. 

Then Sprinkle with Cinnamon. 

Then add a dash of brown sugar.

Roll the crepe up and let the sugars melt before eating!

How to roll French Crepes

Place your filling items on the first third of your crepe. Then grab the small edge of your crepe and roll over the filling items and tuck under. Usually you can roll the crepe over once more! We do not tuck in the ends of the crepes.
