TYPE : French
YIELD : 9 Crêpes (10-inch)
CALORIES : 177 kcal
PREP TIME : 5 minutes
COOK TIME : 15 minutes
TOTAL TIME : 20 minutes


  • 1 cup (2.5 dl) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp sugar (optional)
  • 2 cups (5 dl) milk (divided)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 stick (50 g) melted butter


  • First, whisk together dry ingredients and half the milk into a thick, lump-free batter. Then add eggs, butter and remaining milk.
  • Preheat the skillet over medium-high heat. You may want to add a little butter before the first pancake, but after that it should not be needed.
  • Pour about 1/4 cup (0.5 dl) batter into the skillet and tilt it around to spread the batter evenly over the surface. Cook until bubbly on top and golden brown underneath (about 20 – 30 seconds). Flip it over and cook until golden brown on the other side.


Prepare the batter ahead of time and keep it in the refrigerator for an hour or even overnight for more flavor.
