Basic Crepe Batter

Here's a basic crepe recipe that works well for crepes you eat with sweet fillings. Multiply it by the number of people you want to fill up less one. For example if you want enough crepes for five people, multiply the recipe by four. I like to use an electric whisk to make crepe batter.

  • 1 large egg
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon oil

Whisk the egg with the salt. Pour the flour on top, about half of the milk and all the other ingredients. As you whisk the batter, add in the rest of the milk. Continue whisking until all is blended and smooth.

At this point you have to decide if you should add more milk. The batter should be pourable but not too liquid. It's a feeling thing. You'll get it.

Allow the batter to sit for an hour.

Follow the tips above for cooking the crepes.

Makes about 5 10-inch crepes.
