Cook Time20 mins
Course: Breakfast, Brunch
Cuisine: European, French
Servings: 16 crepes


  • 2 cups cow’s milk
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs medium
  • 1 tbsp water or milk
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil for greasing the pan


  • In a large mixing bowl combine eggs, flour, (water) and milk and mix until no lumps are visible ( I use high-speed hand mixer). The batter should be the consistency of liquid-y runny honey.
  • Preheat your pancake pan (or any other non-stick pan) – it should be extra hot. Then pour 2/3 of regular ladle with pancake batter onto the pan. Quickly distribute the batter to cover the whole pancake pan surface.
  • Once pancake edges starts to separate from pan, gently flip over with wooden spatula of choice.
  • Once crepes are cooked on both sides, place on plate one crepe over the other. To make them extra soft and tasty cover the plate with another same-size plate and leave for 10 min to cool down.
  • Enjoy with a favorite topping.
  • Tip: to avoid pancakes from burning gently grease the pancake pan with vegetable oil, by using cooking brush or cotton pad. I do that after every 3rd /4th pancake.
