Tips for Making the Perfect Crepes
- Batter Consistency is Key: Aim for a smooth, lump-free batter. Use a blender or a hand mixer to achieve the perfect consistency. The batter should have the texture of heavy cream.
- Rest Time: Give the batter time to rest. A minimum of 30 minutes in the refrigerator allows the flour to fully hydrate, making for a softer crepe.
- Pan Perfection: Use a non-stick pan or a specialized crepe pan for best results. Make sure it’s heated properly before you start.
- Temperature Matters: Keep the pan at a medium to medium-high heat for a consistent cook.
- Swirl and Spread: As soon as the batter hits the pan, quickly spread it by rotating the pan.
- Test Run: The first crepe is usually a test of your pan’s current heat. Use it to adjust your settings if needed.
- Timing for Flipping: Wait until the crepe’s edges begin to lightly brown. That’s your cue to flip.
- Stack Smart: If you’re making a lot, separate crepes with parchment paper to prevent sticking.

Frequently Asked Questions
A: A crepe is a thin French pancake that can be filled with a variety of delicious fillings. They can be sweet or savory and are perfect for breakfast, brunch, or dessert!
A: American pancakes are thicker and often fluffy due to the use of a leavening agent. Crepes, on the other hand, are thin and have no leavening agent, making them more versatile for fillings.
A: Absolutely! You can make the crepe batter a day in advance and refrigerate it. The cooked crepes also keep well in the fridge for up to two days, or in the freezer for two months.
A: Make sure the first side is fully cooked (it should look matte) before flipping. Loosen the edges with a spatula and then either flip it with the spatula or give it a quick toss if you’re feeling adventurous.
A: You can quickly reheat them in a skillet over low heat or give them a brief zap in the microwave.
