Crepes are actually very easy to make, require only a few basic ingredients, but look so gorgeous! Crepes are delicate, slightly sweet, nutty and absolutely delicious. Fill with sweet or savory ingredients and enjoy for breakfast, brunch, dinner or dessert. These strawberry crepes are definitely our favourite, but here are some of our other favorite sweet fillings.

Ingredients needed for strawberry crepe
- egg: All you need for this recipe is a large egg.
- milk: Any milk is fine, but sugar-free is recommended.
- salt: Sea salt or kosher salt works best.
- butter: Crepes are best with unsalted butter.
- flour: All-purpose flour gives the best texture, but you can use whole wheat flour if you’re okay with a slightly denser crepe.
- strawberry: For the best flavor, you need fresh, ripe strawberries.
- Greek yogurt: You can use plain or vanilla flavor. If using flavor, you can omit the powdered sugar.
- icing sugar: Add sweetness to the filling.
- Heavy cream: Combine with Greek yogurt for an absolutely thick, creamy filling.
How to make strawberry crepe
I think the easiest way to make crepes is to mix them in a blender.
- blend. Put the wet ingredients into the blender first, then the dry ingredients. Mix until smooth without lumps.
- remaining. It’s good to let the batter rest, as the flour will absorb liquid and the gluten will relax, preventing the texture of the crepe from becoming rubbery and giving it a thinner, more delicate texture.
- cooking. Make sure the skillet is not lightly coated with butter or oil. Pour about 1/4 cup batter into skillet and tilt skillet so batter spreads over surface. Cook about 1 to 2 minutes or until center is not wet. Flip the crepe over and grill the other side for 1-2 minutes.
- serve. Fill the crepe with fresh strawberries and a delicious creamy filling to top it off.
What’s the secret to great crepes?
These are my tips for making crêpes that are thin, delicate, and perfectly crisp on the edges.
- Make sure the batter is of the right consistency. The dough should be thin, smooth and free of lumps. Use a blender or whisk to combine the ingredients and let the dough rest before cooking.
- Please use the right pan. A non-stick pan is essential for making crepes as it cooks evenly and keeps the pan from sticking.
- Make sure your technique is good. When pouring the batter into the pan, pour the batter into the center and quickly tilt and roll to spread the batter evenly over the surface of the pan.
- Do not overheat. Flip the crepe when the edges start to brown.
Why is the crepe batter so thick?
There are several reasons why the batter may not have the right consistency.
- Flour-to-Liquid Ratio: Using too much flour to the liquid component will make the dough too thick. Double-check your recipe to make sure you’re using the correct measurements.
- Insufficient mixing: If the dough is not well mixed, it may contain clumps of flour, resulting in a thicker dough. Mix thoroughly until the dough is smooth and lump-free.
- Do not rest the batter: Allowing the batter to rest after mixing allows the flour to absorb the liquid and relaxes the gluten, resulting in a thinner, more flexible batter.
To thicken the dough, add a little liquid (milk or water) and mix well. You can also use a blender to blend the batter and break up any clumps of flour.
At what temperature should crepes be cooked?
Crepes should be cooked over medium heat. Cooking crepes at a high temperature keeps them raw on the inside but quickly browns the outside. It also makes it harder to turn over without breaking. On the other hand, if the crepe is cooked over low heat, it will be undercooked and rubbery.
