The secret - how to make crepes that are amazing, every time!
In this house, we LOVE crepes. My husband lived in Europe for 2 years and became a professional caliber crepe maker (in my humble opinion.) I swear I could eat them every day. He has passed some of that European knowledge on to me, so here are a few secrets to making the world’s most delicious crepes.

How to Make Crepes that are AWESOME

  1. Buy a crepe pan. If you love crepes and want to make them regularly, this is key! I actually have two of them, so we can make all of the crepes in half the time.
  2. Soda water. In any crepe recipe, you can substitute soda water for regular water. This helps your crepe batter to be just the right texture.
  3. No skim milk. Sure, crepes will work with skim milk, but they won’t taste the same. I am actually pretty firm on this point. We use 2%.
  4. Refrigerate your batter before cooking crepes. If possible, we mix our batter the night before and refrigerate overnight. If that isn’t possible , stick the batter in the fridge for at least an hour, this makes a huge difference.
