  • Heat crepe pan. Leave on medium heat to make the crepes. (If you don’t have a crepe pan, no worries just use a non-stick regular pan) 
  • Using a ladle, add in batter to pan, turning the hot pan to make sure batter is spread all over the pan. Crepes will heat up quickly, especially since they are thin; so work quickly.
