  • 1 3/4 cup (250 g) flour
  • 1 cup (1/4 l) milk
  • 1 cup (1/4 l) water
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar, if making sweet crepes
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Optional Flavoring: 1 tablespoon rum or orange flower water


  • 2 large glasses
  • 1 bowl
  • 1 skillet (or better yet, a crepe pan with raised edges)
  • 1 spatula


  1. The ingredients:

    Mix the flour and water in a bowl, eliminating any lumps. Mix vigorously for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the three eggs, already beaten

  2. Next, gradually add the sugar (optional) if making sweet crepes, then the salt, oil, flavoring (optional) and milk: the batter should be smooth with no lumps.

  3. If possible, let stand for one hour; if unable to, the batter can still be used immediately.

  4. Do a test run by cooking the first crepe in a lightly oiled, hot pan. Pour a ladle of batter into the pan and rotate the handle to create a circle shape with the batter. Turn over the crepe when it is halfway done (= when the edges begin to rise) by flipping it. I think the easiest way is to turn it over with a spatula. If the batter is too thick, add a little liquid.
  5. Cook the other crepes, occasionally regreasing the pan if necessary to prevent them from sticking (keep a small ramekin or bowl with some oil in it nearby for this purpose and add the oil with a small cloth on the end of a fork, etc)
  6. Take a look at crepes in their simplest form, crepes with sugar, here:

Final Thoughts...

Crepes are traditionally made to celebrate Candlemas on February 2nd. A little history and ideas for both sweet and savory crepes

Some pointers:
* Don't forget to lightly add some oil on the (large anti-adhesive) pan, before pouring the first ladle of batter.
* One ladle per crepe.
* My favorite garnishing: squeeze some lemon juice on the hot crepes and then sprinkle some sugar on top. Roll them up.
