The Easiest Crepe Recipe Ever

Saturday was spent with girlfriends over mimosas, bacon, and strawberry Nutella crepes. This is the second time I've hosted with crepes, and it's now my go-to recipe for entertaining. They require minimal ingredients, minimal effort, cook quickly, and result in a huge crowd-pleaser.

The Easiest Crepe Recipe Ever

Time needed: 10 mins. for prep, 20 mins to cook. Yields 8 crepes.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk

  • 4 eggs (do not separate yolks and whites)

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

  • Optional toppings: Nutella, strawberries, syrup, and powdered sugar OR spinach, mushrooms, and cheese

Instructions

  1. In a blender, combine flour, sugar, salt, milk, eggs, and butter.

  2. Puree until smooth and bubbles form on top, about 30 seconds. Let batter sit at least 15 minutes at room temperature.

  3. Heat a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium. Give it a spritz of cooking spray. Add 1/3 cup batter and swirl the pan to completely cover it in a thin layer. Cook until the crepe sets slightly (like a pancake), then plop some filling inside. It doesn't have to be pretty because you'll fold the crepe over when it's done.

  4. Cook until the underside of the crepe is golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes.

  5. Loosen edge of crepe with a spatula, then fold into quarters and slide out of skillet.

  6. Repeat with remaining batter (or refrigerate in an airtight container up to one week; stir before using).
