Crepes So Easy a 2nd Grader Can Make Them

Wrap it up and enjoy!

easy crepes

Every time one of my friends comes back from Paris they have to tell me how great the crepes were; and every time I hear this I always think these just can’t be that hard to make. Some dude on a street makes a crepe a few thousand miles away and we talk about them here. I was determined to figure out how to make them.

It turns out, crepes are easy! … after you know how to make them correctly. I taught my 8 year old daughter and even she can do them with no difficulty. Just watch below!


Like I said, a 2nd grader can make these. It took me about eight tries before I finally figured out the correct recipe and process, but I think these are pretty darn close to what you find on the street in Paris.  Do they taste the same? Yes! Would they be a little better if we had a crepe pan to cook them on? Maybe. But I doubt you could tell the difference if you cooked them thin enough in a pan.

Here’s what you need to make the crepes:

  • 2 cups Skim Milk
  • 1 1/2 tbsp butter melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 1/2 cup of white flour
  • Pinch of salt

First, combine all of the ingredients in a blender and blend for about a minute and a half. This seems to give the batter the right consistency.

Let the batter sit in a refrigerator for at least an hour. I have no idea what this does, but when I do it, the crepes turn out great. If I cook the batter right away, the crepes just don’t turn out.

Also, make sure the heat is high. A little non-stick spray can also really help. Cook for two minutes on the first side, then about a minute on the second.

You can fill them with berries, sugar, Nutella, whipped cream or syrup. If you want to make a sandwich out of them, try ham and cheese.  You won’t be disappointed in this crepe recipe.
