Basic Crepe Recipe (makes approximately 8-10 crepes)

Recipe Ingredients for Basic French Crepe Recipe

1 cup all-purpose flour
3 large eggs
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup half-and-half cream
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons butter, plus extra to grease the skillet

Recipe Directions for Basic French Crepe Recipe

  1. Beat the eggs. Add the milk, cream, and salt.

  2. Place the flour in a medium bowl. Gradually add the liquid, beating to eliminate the lumps. If you add the liquid all at once, it will be harder to prevent the little lumps of flour.

  3. Add the melted butter and incorporate well.

  4. Let the mixture rest for at least 40 minutes in the refrigerator.

  5. When ready to prepare the crepes, heat a large frying pan or crepe pan over medium-high heat and lightly grease it with butter.

  6. Add approximately 1/3 cup of batter to the pan and quickly swirl the batter around so it coats the bottom. If there are any small holes, you can fill them in with a little extra batter.

  7. Cook for a few minutes, until the pancake no longer appears wet and it's light golden brown on the bottom. Carefully flip it over and brown it on the other side. Transfer the crepe to a plate.

  8. If you have the filling ready, place it in the center of the crepe while it's still in the pan. Fold the four sides into the center and flip it over so the seams are on the bottom and the crepe is square shaped.

  9. You can also prepare all the crepes ahead of time, stack them on a plate, cover, and refrigerate them until ready to use.
