Basic Crepes

    I've probably tried a dozen different crepe recipes, and this is by far the best! I don't change a thing, and they have the perfect consistency for pouring, and have a great texture for eating. Doesn't work when you have a craving because the batter must rest for at least an hour, but perfect when you're planning ahead for guests.

    So easy! These crepes always turn out well. Even when you have a stove with lopsided burners!

    Every other crepe recipe includes how to add berries, garnish, etc. It was nice to have a basic recipe that I could work with on my own. Not to mention, it was outstanding! Just sweet enough. After the second attempt, I added a pinch of cinnamon and I was not let down! Thank you! I will use this in the future!

    I really liked this crepe recipe. The crepes are definitely as billed--a great basic crepe. You can increase the sugar slightly if you want a sweeter crepe, but I don't think that's really necessary. I used this to make strawberry crepes for breakfast. I put a tiny bit of nutella on the bottom of the crepe, then added the strawberries, rolled the crepe and added a bit of powdered sugar on top. Delcious! I'm looking forward to trying this with a savory recipe. One note--I had trouble with using the skillet for this, a crepe pan is definitely easier. However, after a couple poor flips, the crepes turned out well after that. Using an off-set spatula (like one you use for frosting a cake) helped to make the flipping easier.

    Worked like a charm. They turned out just like the crepes I remember eating as a kid. Each family member made theirs with a choice of our favorite fillings: jelly; Nutella; fresh berries; chocolate syrup; sliced bananas; and peanut butter. And always topped with a little dusting of powdered sugar. Can't wait to try them with a savory filling for dinner sometime soon.

    This recipe's AMAZING !!!!!! I made those yesterday and everyone loved them !! I added 2 teaspoons Vanilla to the batter. I spread Nutella on the bottom of each crepe, added sliced bananas and rolled them, then I sprinkled chopped hazelnuts and a little bit of sugar over them. Those crepes were close to the ones I eat at Crepaway. Thanks for the recipe :)

    Awesome, easy recipe for crepes. Made these for the Chicken, Spinach and Mushroom Crepes, but would work just as well for sweet crepes too. Much easier than I expected!
