French Crepes

21 Feb


Crepes have been a French tradition since forever. It is famous for all of its little creperies in its towns and cities with the tourists joining in with the locals enjoying them just outside. For National Pancake Day here it the classic French tradition recipe for Crepes. This recipe is simply and delicious and you will be getting a true feeling of what a real French Crepe tastes like.

Nationality: French Cost: £3


  • 3 Eggs
  • 250g of Flour
  • 500ml of Milk
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • 1/2 glass of Beer (15cl)
  • Pinch of Salt


Mix all the ingredients together with a whisk until it becomes a smooth mixture. Cover the bowl and put into the fridge for about an hour for it to rest. Heat a frying pan on high heat. Lightly grease the hot frying pan. Use a small ladle to measure out the batter and simply pour into the hot pan and spread evenly. Flip over the crepe when you see it is no longer sticking to the surface. Remove from heat.

Note: You can serve these crepes with sweet or savory accompaniments (eg: Lemon, Sugar, Nutella, Jam, Ice cream or Ham, Eggs, Cheese and even Bacon)

    Ok, I am trying that later…. 😛
    Like how you combined it with pancake day…
    Was kinda gutted though when you didn’t mention the actual date in which the French started eating pancakes in such an ‘addictive manner.’
