I met my husband when he was a cook and I was a waitress (cliché, I know). That was back in 2004, and he hasn’t worked in that restaurant since 2009, but apparently some recipes you just never forget.

When I asked him if he remembered how to make crepes, he immediately got out the ingredients and whipped up a batch, straight from him brain. I scrambled behind him, pen and paper in hand, trying to record measurements and method.

It usually takes me a couple of tries to capture his recipes. But when I do, they’re always amazing!

Please see the recipe card below for specific quantities.

Ingredient notes

  • Flour: While crepes are traditionally made with buckwheat flour, even the French may substitute white flour (usually white wheat flour) for sweet crepes like these.
  • Strawberry glaze: When it comes to strawberry toppings and fillings, many restaurants use a store-bought strawberry glaze. It’s bright red in color, perfectly sweet, and the easiest trick in the book.

Recipe FAQs

How are crepes and pancakes different?

Pancakes are fluffier because they include a leavening agent in the batter such as baking powder. Ultra-thin crepes do not.

Do I need a crepe pan to make crepes?

Those large, circular cooking surfaces at Crêperies definitely look impressive. But if you’re not cranking out hundreds of crepes per day, any non-stick skillet will do (a 10-½ inch pan is recommended for this recipe).
