Crepes only sound fancy—they’re actually SO simple to make.
How do I make crepe batter?
You make a batter of flour, eggs and milk and a little bit of sugar.
Is crepe batter the same as pancake batter?
No—the ingredients are mostly the same, but pancake batter has a leavener like baking soda or baking powder, while crepes do not. So, pancakes will turn out fluffier and thicker, while crepes are thin and delicate.
Crepe batter is runny, while pancake batter is thick. Don’t fear how thin your crepe batter will be!
How do I make sure my crepe batter doesn’t have any lumps?
Crepe batter is meant to be very thin—there’s more milk than flour in the batter—and you want it to be lump-free. If you want to make sure it’s perfectly thin, you can blend up the batter in a blender or food processor, even though we find that most of the time whisking by hand works fine.
How do I make sweeter crepe batter?
Easy, just up the amount of sugar. We add just a tablespoon, which can easily be doubled if you’re making dessert crepes.
