Tips for Success:

  • Use a shallow non-stick skillet. This is my favorite. 
  • When pouring the batter, use a measuring cup (about ⅓ for a 10" skillet ) to keep the proportions equal and mess-free.
  • When the batter is in the pan, quickly tilt the pan to swirl the batter around. This spreads it out evenly into a large thin circle.
  • black pan spreading batter over the surface
  • Keep the pan at a medium heat, you want them to cook quickly but not burn the edges before the middle is done.
  • Use a silicone spatula to flip. The silicone is soft and glides easily under the crepe.
  • Don't attempt to flip until the middle is set, otherwise it will stick and rip.
  • They cook quickly, don't walk away!
