How to make Crepes? – French Crepe Recipe

How to Season and Maintain Your Crepe Maker?

Crepe Pan Buyers’ Guide

What is a crepe?

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.

How to season a crepe pan?

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.

How to use a crepe maker?

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.

How to make crepes in a pan?

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!

How to flip a crepe?

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.
