A minimal recipe for crêpes.


2 large eggs

¾ cup (170g) milk

½ cup (113g) water

120g flour

43g melted butter

butter to coat pan


In a blender, combine all of the ingredients and pulse for 10s. Place the crepe batter in the refrigerator for 1-48h.

Heat a small non-stick pan. Add butter to coat. Pour 1 ounce of batter into the center of the pan and swirl to spread evenly. Cook for 30s and flip. Cook for another 10s and remove to a serving platter. Lay them out flat so they can cool. Continue until all batter is gone.


You can add 1/2 tsp vanilla extract if you want.
