Cook's Notes

Using a blender ensures a smooth crepe batter that has the consistency of heavy cream. If not using immediately, stack cooked, cooled crepes with wax paper and refrigerate, up to 3 days.

    The recipe is tempting and delicious, it reminds me of my childhood crepe. We used to we it honey and butter layers. My mom was expert in making crepe without breaking anyone. Well dine

    The crepes came out super eggy, not tasty at all. Very disappointed. I'll stick with the recipe I've been using.

    Any village idiot could make this recipe extremely simple easy . It’s a classic . Sometimes I add a teaspoon of almond extract organic or vanilla organic extract . Best result leave the batter overnight in the fridge. One less thing to do Sunday morning ready to go .

    This isn't pronounced "crape" it's pronounced "crap".

      No, not really. In US English, it is definitely pronounced "crape," but in French it's pronounced "crêpe" with the shadow of "uh" on the end. I sure haven't heard anyone pronounce crepe as a curse word! :)

      Is the batter the same when you make manicotti?

    Actually she is saying Crepes correctly. What you are hearing is her accent. I give you the following evidence https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yRdADIbGr7U. Now we got that straight you can also called them blintzes, but that has nothing to do with the recipe. The recipe is easy as a basis batter not to sweet so one can use savory fillings or add little more sugar if you want a sweeter base but be careful as sweet fillings and toppings could make the crepes/blintzes to sweet.

      Are any of the people commenting on the pronunciation of the word "crepe" a linguist? I would really like to know how certainly you know how certain words are to be pronounced. Or how anyone is seemingly purposefully ignorant of the fact that words can be pronounced differently across cultures. Not to mention that criticizing the pronunciation of a word in a cooking video provides absolutely nothing useful to anyone.

    This is the first ever attempt at crepes!! The recipe was very simple and came out great. The only thing I would do different is add a little more sugar. Thanx for a great and easy recipe !!!!
