French Crepe Recipe

french crepe recipe


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Butter or cooking spray, for greasing the pan


  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and salt.
  2. Add the eggs and whisk until smooth.
  3. Slowly whisk in the milk and water until the batter is smooth and free of lumps.
  4. Stir in the melted butter and mix well.
  5. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the batter rest in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes (or up to 24 hours) before using.
  6. When ready to cook the crepes, heat a non-stick crepe pan or skillet over medium-high heat.
  7. Grease the pan with a small amount of butter or cooking spray.
  8. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto the center of the pan and quickly tilt the pan in a circular motion to spread the batter evenly across the surface.
  9. Cook the crepe for 1-2 minutes on the first side, or until the edges begin to lift and the surface appears dry.
  10. Use a spatula to flip the crepe over and cook for an additional 30-60 seconds on the second side.
  11. Transfer the cooked crepe to a plate and repeat the process with the remaining batter, adding more butter or cooking spray as needed.
  12. Serve the crepes warm, filled with your favorite sweet or savory fillings, such as Nutella, fresh fruit, ham and cheese, or spinach and feta.
