Crepes are French Tortillas!

A simple cheap dessert recipe for crepes. But note that this basic crepe can be used for either savory crepes or sweet! I prefer mine with either dulce de leche or nutella and banana.

2 eggs, beaten
1-1/2 cups milk
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tablespoon cooking oil
1/4 teaspoon salt

1. Combine eggs, milk, flour, oil and salt. Beat until smooth.
2. Grease a medium sized (about 6 inches) skillet with butter. Heat skillet. Remove from heat. Spoon in 4 tablespoons of batter. Lift and tilt skillet to spread the batter until the bottom of the skillet is covered evenly. Return to heat. Brown on one side only (it's important that you don't flip it) and invert onto plate when the up side is no longer gooey. Butter pan occasionally in between crepes. Fill with filler goodness to your liking!

You can store any extras you make in the freezer. Just remember to separate each crepe with waxed paper in an airtight container. Thaw for an hour before eating.


  1. That sounds delicious. I'm going to try some this weekend.

  2. I tried it out, and I'm amazed at how easy, inexpensive and wonderful it is!
