Servings 20 crepes


  • 300 ml of whole milk
  • 200 ml of water
  • 50 ml of vegetable oil
  • 450-500 g of all purpose flour or 00 type
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar brown or white
  • 2 eggs
  • pinch of salt


  • Put all ingredients into a large bowl and whisk properly. Start with the eggs to make sure there are no eggshells in the batter! Add flour in batches.
  • The final batter should be runny, but not as thin as water. Add more flour or milk if needed.
  • Heat a non-stick pan to medium high heat and grease it with a bit of oil.
  • Use 1 smaller soup ladle full of batter per crepe.
  • Flip the crepe once the top side is no more “liquid”.
  • Cook approximately 2 minutes per side.
  • Repeat the process 🙂
  • Toppings are optional, we used strawberry jam and Nutella.
  • Fold or roll the topped crepes.
