How to Make Crepes

Versatile, convenient crepes can be made ahead or made to order. Pair them with an array of fillings any time of day.

Rolling up a filled crepe

Stack, Roll, or Fold

Stack, roll, or fold crepes for a variety of presentation options. Many of our recipes call to fold ends and sides over to completely cover the filling.

Four Easy Variations
Different flours, such as buckwheat or chickpea, vary the flavor and texture of crepes. Seasonings, such as fresh chopped herbs, citrus rind, spices, chopped nuts, grated cheese, or cocoa powder lend distinct flavor to the finished dish. Be creative with crepe batter, or use one of our favorite variations.

Herbed Crepes: Add 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley and 1 teaspoon chopped fresh chives to the Basic Crepe batter.

Espresso Crepes: Add 2 teaspoons instant espresso powder to the Basic Crepe batter.

Buckwheat Crepes: Omit 2/3 cup all-purpose flour and add 2/3 cup buckwheat flour to the Basic Crepe recipe.

Cinnamon Crepes: Add 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon to the Basic Crepe batter.
