How to make Crepes in a proper Crepe Pan?
Yeah, the pan was for these crepes
we are making. Yeah.
The pan was heated up first, right? Right.
And then you put the oil into the hot pan.
Okay. If you do it, put the oil into the cold pan,
it will stick, okay? Okay.
And then I swoosh it around.
Round, round, round, round like this, and sing a little.
Okay. Is singing optional or? Singing. No.
Or necessary? Necessary. Ha ha ha! Absolutely.
Ha ha ha. Necessary, okay?
Okay, singing crepes. Singing crepes, okay.
See how wonderful this is?
And you see, it’s cooked around the edges?
Yeah. And you take and you flip it. Okay.
This is just, turn it down a little more,
and you know what? This is done already.
Can I just grab a plate here? Yeah. Okay.
See? Fantastic crepes.
Going to do one more? I will do one more.
So you have to oil it every time?
Every time, yeah, because it absorbs it, right?
It’s flour. So, you know?
What kind of oil is it? Vegetable oil for this one.
You can’t use olive oil.
You, vegetable, you can use peanut oil,
that’s fine if there are no allergies,
because you need a high, you know, high heat oil,
yeah. Olive oil is low heat, right? No,
olive oil doesn’t, it has a taste
that doesn’t go with sweet things,
in this case anyway, right? Very nice.
It looks good. Yeah,
and see they don’t take long.
You can’t leave them, and leave. Yeah.
You have to do them right here. You have to stand there.
And you have to stand there, otherwise.
So, that’s a real crepe pan too, right? Yeah,
this is a fantastic crepe pan,
has the right size, right? Yeah.
And then we’ll fill it with a nice fruit filling,
or whatever. See you can also,
what you can do with the crepes,
instead of adding the orange zest and the vanilla,
you can add a little salt, and some herbs,
fresh basil, and some dill,
and then you can make crepes for seafood,
for instance, right? Yeah. Seafood crepes. (Singing.)
Oh, I forgot the singing. You forgot the singing.
Just too much, yes.
So you can use this recipe.
Perfect. Thank you. Yeah.

Crepe Pan Buyers’ Guide
Crepe is a very thin pancake. It is served with a variety of toppings and fillings such as chocolate, caramel, strawberry, banana, etc. Generally, there are two types of crepes, sweet and savory. Sweet crepes are made with wheat flour and usually served with berries and different kinds of syrups. Savory crepes, on the other hand, are made with non-wheat flours. Typical fillings for this type of crepe are ham, cheese, and eggs. Savory crepes are usually made with buckwheat, which is gluten-free or simply by wheat flour omitting sugar from the recipe.
The first step you need to do is to wash the pan in warm and soapy water and dry them completely. Then, cover the pan with one tablespoon of vegetable oil and heat it for 15 minutes on high heat. Place the pan into the oven and line the bottom of the oven with aluminum foil. Bake it for one hour then turn it off. Do not take off the pan right away, instead wait for the oven and pan to cool down.
Wipe the crepe maker with oil and wipe off any excess and set the machine to low degrees. Preheat it for about four minutes. You can make the dough in a bowl and slightly pour it into a 9-inch glass pie plate. Then hold the pan in the batter for another minute. Move the crepe onto a plate. If there are holes in your crepe while making, make sure you have a spoon in your hand with batter on it to fill the crepe whenever there appear holes.
First of all, make the crepe batter, then pour it into the heating pan and make sure it is spread through the whole pan. Cook it until it becomes more solid and flip it to the other side for both parts to be done. Now, just like we did with crepe maker, if you notice any holes in your crepe, you can refill them with a spoon of batter. Cook it until done and transfer it onto a plate. So, if you think crepes are possible to make only with crepe makers, you need to try it with stainless steel pans and see how good they are!
The critical thing for flipping a crepe without breaking it is to flip it at the right time. You will need to wait for the edges to brown and the top to bubble. That is when you know it is ready to flip. Lift the edges with a spatula to see if the bottom part is soft brown; if yes, then slide the spatula under the crepe and get it to the center of it. Make sure you don’t hold it in the air for too long, otherwise it will break. Turn your wrist over while holding the spatula. Now it’s done, do not try to flip it more than once or else it will become overcooked or broken.
