Breakfast Crepes: A Luxurious Morning Treat

I usually start my morning off with just a cup of coffee. So, even though these are called breakfast crepes, I have never had them for breakfast 😉 Nevertheless, these are delicious and easy, two things I always like in any type of recipe. Whether you have them for breakfast or dinner (like I do), I’m sure you will love them.

  • Ladle enough batter to thinly cover the bottom of the pan. Wait until the edges start to lift away from the pan (1 to 2 minutes). Flip the crepe and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Repeat for the rest of the batter. This batter makes around 6 small crepes.

Tips and tricks

  • Smooth Batter: Ensure your crepe batter is free of lumps by whisking it thoroughly. Letting the batter rest for about 30 minutes to an hour allows the flour particles to fully hydrate, resulting in smoother crepes.
  • Proper Pan: Use a non-stick skillet or crepe pan with a flat bottom. The low sides make flipping easier, and the even heat distribution prevents uneven cooking.
  • Right Temperature: Preheat the pan over medium heat. Test the temperature by dropping a small amount of batter onto the pan. It should sizzle gently and spread smoothly.
  • Flipping Technique: Use a thin spatula to gently loosen the edges of the crepe before flipping. To flip, lift one edge with the spatula and use your fingers to quickly flip it over.
  • Controlled Pour: Pour the batter into the center of the pan and immediately tilt the pan in a circular motion to spread the batter evenly. Use just enough batter to thinly coat the pan.
  • Coating the Pan: If your first crepe sticks or doesn’t turn out perfectly, don’t worry. Sometimes the first crepe is a trial run while the pan becomes properly coated with a thin layer of batter.
  • Filling Placement: When adding fillings, place them slightly off-center to make folding easier. Avoid overfilling, as it can lead to difficulty in folding and messy crepes.
  • Timing is Key: Cook the crepe until the edges are lightly golden and the center is set, usually about 1-2 minutes. A well-cooked crepe should have a soft, tender texture.
  • Stacking with Care: If you’re making multiple crepes, stack them with parchment paper in between to prevent sticking. This also helps maintain their shape and prevent moisture buildup.
  • Versatile Fillings: Get creative with fillings! For sweet crepes, consider fruits, jams, Nutella, whipped cream, and chocolate. Savory options include eggs, cheese, ham, and vegetables.
