Servings 4 people


  • 4 medium eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup powder sugar see below
  • 2/3 tsp salt
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 TBS butter for the pan


  • Begin by taking your French crepe pan and melt 1 tsp of butter in it. (instead of using oil)
  • Mix eggs, milk, powder sugar , salt together, then mix in flour. It should become a nice sturdy mix, not too thick, not too thin
  • In your heated pan, scoop approx. 2/3 of a ladle of the batter, and pour batter in pan. Make them thin by swirling the pan around. Let it cook on medium heat (from 0 to 9 about 6) until you can easily flip. When ready, flip over for a brief moment, just to slightly tan.
  • Crepes can be made one by one and served immediately, or can be stacked and kept in warm oven until finished making the batter. After each crepe, add a sliver of butter to the pan, let it melt and you are ready for the next crepe.
  • Accompany crepes with sweet butter, vanilla crème, fresh fruit, powder sugar, cinnamon sugar, or fresh preserves. Take it to a dinner meal, and you can serve a creamy meat or vegetable sauce inside the crepe. Makes approx. 20 crepes.
  • We like to put jelly or preserves in the in a long line in the middle, then roll it up like a burrito and put powder sugar with a shaker on top.
