  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp butter melted
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • Butter and powdered sugar for serving optional


  • In a mixing bowl, mix together the eggs, milk, water, salt and butter. Whisk or beat until smooth. Slowly add in the flour until well combined and smooth.
  • Allow the batter to rest for 3-5 minutes.
  • Heat a griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Oil it lightly. Pour a scoop of batter onto the griddle and quickly tilt the pan in a circular motion to spread the batter into an even layer that coats the pan.
  • Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes. The top will begin to form bubbles and dry out. Flip the crepe over with a spatula. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes. Serve hot with butter and powdered sugar.


  • Each crepe requires about 1/4 cup of batter.
  • For dessert crepes, add 1/2 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp sugar to the batter.
  • For savory crepes, you can add dried herbs or even shredded Parmesan cheese to the batter.
  • Crepes can be filled with your choice of ingredients. Try sliced strawberries and bananas, nutella, caramel, or for savory crepes, try ham and cheese or feta and cherry tomatoes.
