Since my friends at Le Creuset sent me a non-stick crêpe pan to use in my recipes, I’ve been using it all the time.
My kids love them. In fact they love them so much they asked me to teach them how to make crepes and I did.
Sometimes we make them sweet but I prefer the savoury version. Crêpes are great on their own but I like to fill them with different things.
A bacon and cheese filling is great for breakfast. If you want to go all out, try this lobster and garlic confit filled crêpe recipe. It makes a delicious starter or main course.
For best results, be sure to use free range eggs and sift your flour. This will make a better batter.
The batter can be made a day ahead of cooking. Many people find this much more convenient but the batter really doesn’t take long to make.
If you do make it earlier, be sure to whisk it well before cooking.

If you are new to crepe making, I can almost assure you that your first few crepes won’t look great. It takes practice.
