French Crepes

Jump to Recipe

My love for a crepe is not secret any more. If I pass through a crepe kiosk without stopping, then my family is worried about my well being. 🤔😉

A crepe is a super-thin french pancake that comes in two types. One is savoury and another is sweet. Though I love both, my favourite is sweet ones. ❤❤

I follow a simple recipe for crepes by Julia Child. It’s easy, takes only one blender and is foolproof. You can obviously whisk this traditionally but I find this really convenient. I don’t know how many times I have made this, but the result is always mind blowing. 🙂

I was making a big batch of crepes today to store in the fridge for the coming few days. Though making this doesn’t take much time, making ahead is always advisable if you have to make them for several people.

You can store the batter in the fridge for 2 days and if storing the crepes it can go up to 3-4 days in the fridge and 2 weeks in a deep freezer. Just don’t forget to line them with wax paper.

Use your favourite fruits, whipping cream, chocolate sauce, honey, or anything else. You will fall in love with this French culinary delight every time you eat .
