Confident Levelled Recipe - Safely works with unpasteurized Ingredients such as eggs and flour!

Elastic crepes that are easy to make and even easier to consume!


  • 2 Large Eggs, at room temperature

  • 3/4 cup milk - could be dairy or plant based (such as almond milk), at room temperature

  • 1/2 cup water, at room temperature

  • 1 cup flour, sifted

  • 3 tablespoons melted butter or oil, at room temperature

  • Oil or Butter, for coating the pan


I don't think you're ready for this:

  • In a bowl or mixer, place all the ingredients and mix until it is homogeneous and no lumps remain. I find that sifting your flour makes a huge difference!


  • Lightly coat a small heated pan with butter or oil.

  • Pour enough batter into the center of the pan and swirl to spread evenly.

  • Cook long enough to have the batter look as if it cooked through - approximately 30 seconds - and flip.

  • As it's practically cooked through, since crepes are so thin, cook for another 10 seconds just to get some color
    *Keep buttering/oiling the pan as necessary - best practice is to have a paper towel with some oil or butter to thinly spread the oil/butter!*

  • Remove from the heat and place them flat on a plate to cool down.

  • Continue this lovely process until all batter is gone!

    All full? Once they have cooled down, you can stack them and place them in an air-tight containers for a couple of days or freeze them for up to two months. When ready to consume the frozen crepes, make sure to first thaw them on a cooling rack before gently peeling apart.


  • After mixing the batter, you can refrigerate it for 1 hour in order to let the bubbles rise to aid in the flipping when cooking.

  • You can choose to use some batter now and save some for later. To save the batter, place it in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 48 hours! Then, when ready to cook, simply take them out and go on your delicious way!


  • Savoury - Grab some eggs, add a pinch of salt, chop and add 1/4th cup of veggies such as spinach, sun-dried tomatoes or even herbs! Cook and endulge!

  • Sweet - Add 1 teaspoon of: an extract (such as vanilla), chocolate powder or even dried fruit (think powdered dried strawberries, raspberries, blueberries etc.) to change the flavour of the batter! You can choose to increase the quantity to your choosing.

  • Cake Form - Prepare a number of layers of crepes! To assemble simply add a filling of your choice to make a Crepe Cake - a filling can consist of a whipped cream base, a thick reduction of fruits, a light chocolate ganache, or even the aforementioned plus crushed up pieces of nuts, chocolate, dried fruit etc. The important aspect is having a solid recipe for the crepes - which you now have!

  • How to consume: Oh goodness, the possibilities are endless! Chocolate, syrup, Nutella, fruits and whipped cream, just sugar in the middle, jam, sunbutter, etc.! Even plain!


  • Craving crepes and the little one wants pancakes? Simply grab a 1/4th cup measuring utensil and pour the uncooked batter on the pan in little circles or ovals but DO NOT SPREAD OUT. Yes, they will come out thicker than crepes, but that is how I got my little one to have "pancakes" while we ate crepes.

  • Also, having options, as simple as, choosing if they want small sized crepes or the big crepes has helped greatly to having him serve himself and listen to his hunger. It's a simple yet effective way sometimes to give them the power to choose for themselves!
    ... or we have found bite marks in all the crepes regardless of options and hey, it would've been the equivalent to a solid portion of consumption right?! I'll take it as a win - he ate anyways lol...
