French Crepe Recipe

Crepes are quick and simple to make. They are very versatile and can be served as a first or second course as well as a dessert depending on whether they are filled with sweet or savory ingredients.

It is not uncommon to find recipes in which ingredients such as Marsala wine or Cognac are added to the mixture to give the crêpe a distinct flavor. What I’ve transcribed is the original recipe for which I’d like to thank some French friends. Experiment and experiment to come up with variations

    3. Allow the batter to rest while you melt the butter. Pour in the melted butter and stir everything together.
    4. By incorporating melted butter into the batter you can avoid over-greasing the bottom of the pan between crepes.
    5. Allow the batter to rest in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. This is critical to the crepe's success.
    6. Prepare a cup with melted butter in a flat-bottomed nonstick pan over medium heat. Once the pan is hot enough, dip a piece of cotton gauze in the butter and coat the entire surface with a thin film of butter.
    7. Pour in half a ladle of batter at a time until the batter is evenly distributed across the entire surface of the pan to make perfect, thin, and regular crepes.
    8. Cook for 1–2 minutes per side.e It is simple to tell when it is time to turn the crepe because it will easily come off from the bottom.



Notes

  • Replace the salt with a teaspoon of sugar for sweet crepes, which can be enriched with a drop of Grand Marnier.
