A basic crêpe recipe which you can fill with whatever you like. I cook them nearly every Sunday morning.

IngredientsMakes: 6 crepes

  • 100g (4 oz) plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon caster sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 225ml (8 fl oz) semi skimmed milk
  • 1 egg

MethodPrep:5min ›Cook:5min ›Ready in:10min

  1. Combine flour, sugar and salt in a bowl. Make a well in the centre of the flour and add the milk and egg. Beat well to combine.
  2. Heat a lightly oiled frying pan over medium high heat. Pour the crêpe batter onto the pan, using approximately 60ml (2 fl oz) for each crêpe. Tilt the pan in a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.
  3. Cook the crêpe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a flexible spatula or fish-slice, flip over and cook the other side. Serve hot with your filling of choice.

Altered ingredient amounts.doubled the sugar amount to make a sweeter pancake-26 Feb 2011

we wanted a sweeter pancake so i doubled the amount of sugar and served with a nice vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce! delicious!!-26 Feb 2011

I added two tea spoons of melted butter to the mixture. I used Tefal frying pan and only wiped it with oil with a piece of tissue every time I wanted to pour the mixture. Since I made these, I'm never satisfied with any other crepes aywhere, not even in classy cafes! Just so good! I use Nutella and banana slices filling, for a big breakfast on special days!-16 Mar 2010
