Basic Crepes

These easy thin pancakes can hold all kinds of fillings!

Ingredients

2
cups all-purpose flour
4
eggs
1
cup milk
1
cup water
1/2
tsp salt
4
tbsp butter, melted
vegetable oil for frying

Directions

  • 1 Whisk together all ingredients except vegetable oil.
  • 2 For each crepe, heat 2 tsp. vegetable oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat.
  • 3 Pour 1/4 cup batter in and use your wrist to rotate the pan so the batter spreads. Use a spatula to spread the batter gently into a 6-7” circle.
  • 4 Cook until the edges of the crepe are dry and the tops begin to bubble, then flip carefully and cook the other side until golden brown on the bottom.
  • 5 Transfer the cooked crepes to an ungreased baking sheet (you may need a few) and keep warm in a 200°F oven until ready to use.

C’est Chic: Dessert Crepe Party

As prepared by Broke Ass Gourmet,

Parties featuring interactive foods are better than parties featuring non-interactive foods.


It’s just the truth. Foods that require party guests to make decisions about fillings, wrap, roll and/or dip give people an opportunity to mix, mingle and chat. And all that really helps stir your party’s pot, so to speak. With this in mind, one of my favorite ways to get things going is to throw a DIY crepe party. All you need is a basic crepe recipe and guests with an appetite for adventure.

Crepes, which are essentially super-thin French pancakes, can be filled with a multitude of different items of both the sweet and savory persuasions. Yes, savory crepes are plenty good for brunch, lunch or dinner gatherings, but, in my humble opinion, dessert crepes are the simplest yet most fun way to get your crepe on.

basic crepe recipe

First, start with a basic crepe recipe. Cook the crepe pancakes in advance and keep them warm in a 200-degree oven (You can even draft your guests to help cook them, if you like). Then simply set them out, along with a plethora of fillings, and let your guests start building their own individual delicious desserts. Just add wine and music.

Fancy Fillings


It's good to have a lot of variety to help your guests get in touch with their "inner" French culinary side. Here are some crepe fillings that I like to serve:

Fresh whipped cream

Jellies, jams and marmalades

Peanut butter

Nutella

Fresh cut-up fruit

Chocolate chips

Brown sugar

Mascarpone, crème fraiche or sour cream

Ice cream

Caramel sauce

Chocolate fudge sauce

Creamy custards



Feel free to be creative with your fillings—let us know if you discover an excellent new one.

Bon appétit!
