Easy French Crepes (Authentic Recipe)
French crepes recipe that requires only 3 ingredients and is exceptionally easy to make. They are soft and thin, perfectly sized and go well with honey,
marmalade, chocolate and even feta cheese.
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.
