French crepes

This is recipe is from my French host mother. Be creative with your toppings, either sweet or savoury. Bacon, cheese, eggs, ham, cooked chicken, as well as nutella, jam, lemon juice and sugar all work really well. Makes about 20 thin crepes.


  • 3 eggs
  • 250g  flour
  • 1 tbs sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tbs melted butter
  • ~400ml milk


  1. Mix all ingredients together and add enough milk to make a runny batter.  Allow to rest for about 30 minutes.
  2. Heat up a crepe pan and pour a small amount of mixture into the middle of the pan. Spread the mixture quickly around the pan by using a spreader, or by twisting the pan.
  3. When one side is cooked, flip the crepe and add your toppings. Once heated through, serve.
