Crepe Recipes, Tips and Techniques for Making Crepes, and Crepe Related Items For Sale

Crepes are thin, delicate pancakes that can be a wrap for anything from strawberries and chocolate, to cinnamon and apples, to grilled veggies, to spinach and cheese! Crepes can turn an ordinary meal into a culinary delight!

Crepes can be filled and rolled, folded in half, folded in fourths, or layered with filling in between. You can use them as breakfast dishes, main meals, afternoon snacks, and desserts. You can add ingredients to the crepe batter itself too, such as cocoa or cinnamon.

Even though they have the reputation of being challenging, crepes are actually quite simple to make.

On this page, you'll find some crepe recipes and tips on making crepes as well as some crepe pans, crepe makers, and crepe cookbooks.

The Crepe Pictured Above
The crepe pictured above is a Double Decker Strawberry, Banana, and Chocolate Crepe, with walnuts, powdered sugar, and additional strawberries on the top!

My First Introduction To Crepes
My first introduction to crepes was when I was in 10th grade. I was visiting at the house of my best friend, a girl who'd moved to the US from Romania only a couple of years before. She said, "Why don't we make some dessert crepes?" I was both shocked and impressed. I said, '"Aren't those really difficult?" She laughed and said, "You've never made crepes?! They're one of the easiest recipes I know how to make!" Not using a written recipe or any exact measurements, we made crepes together that day. For me, a new love was born: crepes have been a favorite of mine ever since! Although I sometimes run across other recipes, I've continued over the years to make crepes the way my friend taught me.

Recipes
Below are the basic recipes I use for breakfast, dinner, and dessert crepes. I've also included some vegan, and gluten-free recipes. I've moved the crepe filling and topping recipes to the following pages since this page had gotten so long!

What's so great about crepes? - Crepes are so versatile! Not to mention delicious!

You can do so much with crepes! Try filling dinner crepes with your grilled garden fresh veggies on Monday, asparagus with a delectable mushroom sauce on Tuesday, baked potato and toppings on Wednesday, spinach and cheese on Thursday, mushrooms and walnuts on Friday, your favorite Mexican ingredients on Saturday, and broccoli and cheese on Sunday!

And don't forget the breakfast and dessert crepes! Strawberries & chocolate, peach jam, chocolate & bananas, cooked apples & raisins, strawberry jelly, mixed fresh berries & bananas, lemon & honey, etc.!!

Oh, and did I mention the taste? Mmmmmm......!


Crepe Recipes

Including Gluten Free and Vegan Crepe Recipes

Basic Breakfast Or Dessert Crepe Recipe

Here's how to make the crepes themselves!


Basic Breakfast or Dessert Crepe Recipe

1 cup whole wheat or all purpose flour

3 tsp sugar (optional)

1/4 tsp salt

1 1/2 cup (to 1 3/4 cup) water

1 egg

vegetable oil or cooking spray

Mix all the ingredients into a medium sized mixing bowl. The batter should be much thinner than for pancakes. For really smooth crepes, process the batter in a food processor or with a hand-held wand. (In the interest of having less clean up to do, I usually just skip this step, mashing out the lumps with the side of my spoon against the bowl.)

Preheat a pan on medium heat with a very small amount of vegetable oil. The oil should just barely mist the bottom of the pan. When the pan is warm, pick it up off the stove and hold it while you pour a small amount of batter (about 1/4 cup..although I don't measure it) into it. As you are pouring the batter, tilt the pan slowly in all directions so that the batter spreads in a very thin layer across the bottom.When the edges start peeling away from the pan, or when they become lightly golden (whichever comes first), gently loosen the crepe with a spatula and then flip the crepe over in the pan. The second side should cook much more quickly, so don't get distracted and let it cook too long. In my opinion, the best, most delicate and delicious crepes are cooked until they have only just a hint of color.

      I love to Serve the crepe by stuffing or filling with fruits, cream, topping whipped cream, jam, blue berries, fruit mixed with vanilla along with Lemon juice to add the taste. Love to eat it.

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      WOW! Creps are fun and easy! they are great for breakfast, rolled around fillings or used to line a muffin tin or ramekin then filled and baked, or, you can drape the crepe over an upturned muffin tin or ramekin and bake until crisp, then use the crispy crepe as a bowl. Savory, make a saladlike a taco salad, sweet, fill with fruit or Ice Cream. Dinner tonight is going to be pizza rolls. Crepes made with Italian herbs in the batter, then herbed tomato past, pizza fixins, cheese, rolled the way you roll a taquito, then popped in the skillet, seam down, just long enough to heat through and brown the outside, eat dipped is marinara. You can use them with mexican spices in the bater and fill like a taco or taquito. ALWAYS yummy!

    • rawwwwwws lm 5 years ago

      This is so hard! I love food, but I must go with the sweet crepes because I have a sweet tooth! However, savory is good too!

    • MartieG aka 'survivoryea' 5 years ago from Jersey Shore

      They all look yummy but sweet is my winner!

    • Barbara Radisavljevic 5 years ago from Templeton, CA

      I like them all --provided someone else makes them. Since I have sweet ones more often (my mil made them), I chose that answer.

    • Marc 5 years ago from Edinburgh

      I love sweet ones. Have to say if I'm going for savoury, I like cheese and marmite! mmmm

    • PennyHowe 5 years ago

      Love them, but not good at making them.

    • russiangifts 5 years ago from USA

      Sweet crepes with strawberries and a dob of sour cream on the top. Yummy!

      Crepes can have almost any filling and be wonderful! Dessert crepes with chocolate and whipped cream are the best for after dinner.

    • Sunfish LM 5 years ago

      We had countless hours of fun in the kitchen making crepes as a family while growing up. They were for the most part sweet crepes, with simply powdered sugar or a little nutella.Yum.

      I chose sweet, but I really love both. I'm actually more apt to make savory crepes because I don't cook a lot of desserts.

    • JoyfulPamela2 6 years ago from Pennsylvania, USA

      Chocolate, chocolate, and then chocolate! =D

    • KokoTravel 6 years ago

      I love dessert crepes... but that's because I am overly hungry right now... I love all kinds of crepes and your ideas are fabulous.

    • puerdycat lm 6 years ago

      Ummm. Thank you! Grape jelly crepes. Rolled and stacked high on a platter in the oven. That's what I woke up to as a child. That's what my mom and her mom woke up to. An Austrian tradition.

    • spritequeen lm 6 years ago

      I just like them with a little maple syrup inside!

    • anonymous 7 years ago

      Nutella!!

    • KarenTBTEN 7 years ago

      They're both good, but I tend to prefer the savory fillings with a corn tortilla for nutrition reasons. Sweet crepes are good with baked apples or berries and cream.

    • anonymous 7 years ago

    • Anthony Godinho 8 years ago from Ontario, Canada

      I like 'em both, but would opt for the gluten-free ones.

      My current favorite sweet crepe recipe is honey and fresh squeezed lemon on whole wheat crepes!

    • hlkljgk 8 years ago from Western Mass

      i never met a crepe i didn't like; but for me, keeping it simple is where it's at: brown sugar and cinnamon. mmmm....

    • Achim Thiemermann 8 years ago from Austin, Texas

      Fresh berries, sweetened with Tangerine Ginger Agasweet (flavored agave nectar by one Chef Keem, LOL). Agave sweetener really brings out the fruit flavors!

        I prefer dinner crepes with cheese and broccoli.

      • sheilamarie78 6 years ago

        I love them both! Can't I choose that option? No? Then I guess I'll go with savory. I'll sneak the sweet ones later.

      • anonymous 6 years ago

        I have loved them with strawberries but I am now hearing about dinner crepes and they sound like new favorites to me and I would probably prefer them because I don't have much of a sweet tooth.

      • anonymous 7 years ago

        Fill you crepes with shrimps, chicken, herbs and your favorite veggie, like asparagus and top it with a hollandaise sauce or bechamel..........totally awesome!

      • BlissNow LM 8 years ago

        My 10 year old son makes a delicious crepe type omelet. These look so yummy and now I'm hungry!

        Creamy mushrooms, my favorite!

      Crepe- Making Tips and Techniques

      A Few Crepe Making And Storing Tips

      1. I don't add more oil to the pan between each crepe. If your crepes start sticking, add a tiny bit of oil to the pan, wiping out any extra with a paper towel (being careful not to burn your fingers, of course!), and continue on with your next crepe. If you have too much oil in your pan, the batter mixes with the oil and the crepe doesn't do as well.

      2. If a crepe tears or develops a hole when you flip it over, repair it as best as you can by adjusting the torn edges - placing them as close together as you can - and then add a very thin layer of crepe batter covering the tear and a small area surrounding the tear. If you add only a very thin layer of batter, smoothing it gently with the back of a spoon, the torn place should blend in well with the rest of the crepe and the crepe will not need to be reflipped again. If on the other hand the crepe is badly mangled, you may have to either toss it in the trash, or eat it as is...

      3. If you have crepe batter left, store it in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. This allows you to cook just one or two crepes at time, and have batter on hand for when you get your next crepe craving!! I do this often, saving batter left from breakfast for a snack later in the day or for a meal the following day. You'll have to restir the batter well when you take it out of the refrigerator to use it.

      4. If a crepe wrinkles or gets folded a little when you flip it, it's often possible to fix it. Try unfolding it using the spatula or your fingers (being careful not to burn your fingers!). Sometimes gently shaking the pan will help get rid of the wrinkles.

      5. If you are planning on melting something (such as cheese or chocolate chips) in your crepe as it cooks, add that item as soon as you flip the crepe over. Add any other items you are planning on filling your crepe with on top of the item you want melted. (The item to be melted should be as close to the heat as possible.)

      6. If your crepes are not as thin as you'd like for them to be, add a little more water to the remaining batter. But don't add too much, or the crepes will be too thin.

      7. Cooked crepes (which have not yet been filled) may be kept on a covered plate on your kitchen counter for 1 or 2 days. Place a sheet of waxed paper or parchment paper between each crepe to keep them from sticking. If you want to keep the crepes longer than two days, refrigerate them as they do mold easily.

      Filling and Folding Crepes While They're Still In The Pan! - Directions


      Crepes can be cooked in the pan and then removed before being filled, or they can be filled while they're still in the pan. If your filling has been in the refrigerator and you want to heat it up a little, or if you want some cheese, chocolate, butter, or other item to melt, try filling the crepe while it's still in the pan cooking. To do this, pour the batter and cook the first side as normal. Then flip the crepe and place your filling directly on the crepe to begin melting or heating while the second side finishes cooking. When you think the bottom of the crepe has cooked enough, go ahead and either roll the crepe, or fold it. (If the bottom of the crepe gets too crispy, it's hard to roll the crepe...but hopefully you can still fold it!)

      The crepe above was a whole wheat crepe that I filled with slices of cheese (I didn't even grate the cheese!) and left-over potato and veggie filling. I decided to melt the cheese and warm the filling by adding them to the crepe while it finished cooking. It came out perfectly! Even though the filling had been in the refrigerator, it was warm by the time I ate it, and the cheese was perfectly melted!

      Because crepes, unlike pancakes, usually take up the entire bottom of your pan, they are much, much easier to prepare in a pan with a low and slanted lip! Otherwise it's very difficult to get the spatula under them to flip them, without tearing them apart.

          I do have to say that although I like eating crepes, I do not have the courage to try cooking them myself. They seem a bit too delicate for me to attempt. However, this is an incredible resource for recipes, and I will be passing this on to others.

          Wow, what great information about crepes! I've never made them before, but do enjoy a good dessert crepe when I'm out for dinner. I'd like to try my own hand at it, for either a dinner or dessert crepe.

          I love crepes. My Grandmother is French and she makes them for me every time I come to visit. Sometimes it's for breakfast and we roll them with jelly or syrup and sometimes it's for dinner and she stuffs them with asparagus and chicken. I have to agree that this is a very universal dish. I've tried making them myself but I burn them almost every time. I don't have the pan rolling technique down. I sure love to eat them though. So inexpensive to make too. Great lens. 5*****

If you haven't already, don't forget to submit this lens to Culinary Favorites From A to Z.

          [in reply to SparkleChi] Have you tried using almond flour in place of wheat flour? I've made quite a few other things that way, although I've never tried making crepes from almond flour. I have no idea if it would work or not.
