Recipe Swap: Crepes

I got this recipe from my dear friend, Tammy, the owner of the Frugal Families website, and it is one of our favorite things to have for breakfast. It’s quick and easy, and it makes a lot. I usually double the recipe and keep the extras in the fridge for the kids to grab over the next few days.

Just remember, it may take a few tries for you to get the hang of spreading the batter evenly, but it’s not hard to do.



3 large eggs

6 large eggs

2/3 cup milk

1 1/3 cups milk

2/3 cup water

1 1/3 cups water

¼ tsp. salt

½ tsp salt

3 Tbs. oil

6 Tbs oil (or 1/4 cup + 2 Tbs)

1 cup all-purpose flour

2 cups all-purpose flour

Put eggs in blender and blend slightly.

Add milk, water, salt, and oil. Blend well.

**For sweet crepes, add 1 – 2 Tbs. sugar and 1 ½ to 2 tsp. vanilla here.**

Gradually add flour, blending well.

Let stand for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator. This can be left to stand overnight in the refrigerator, but will need to be blended slightly before use.

Use a small nonstick skillet (an 8-inch skillet works well) – spray lightly with oil. Heat pan to medium heat. Pour ¼ cup batter in middle of pan and move in circular motion to spread batter thinly. Cook about 30 seconds, flip, and cook on 2nd side for about 15 seconds.

Fill as desired and enjoy!

**This recipe doubles easily and freezes well!**

Here’s a recipe for savory crepes that I’ve not tried yet, but I plan to very soon!
