What are crepes?

Essentially, crepes are ultra-thin French pancakes. They’re as delicate and paper-thin as lace with perfectly browned, crisp edges. They differ from pancakes because they usually aren’t made with any leavening agents. 

But I’ve added a pinch of baking powder. Hear me out. I know this defies the rule of crepes but adding just a hint, and I really do mean a hint, of leavener gives these crepes a little oomph.  Not like pancakes, but just a little something for my fork to dig into.

Crepes are the perfect classy breakfast/brunch food. You could fill them or top them. Serve them with fresh, whipped cream, berries, or Nutella for a classic sweet treat. Or turn them into a savory dish that’s filled with fresh vegetables or meat. Remember when I mentioned how versatile these were? I wasn’t kidding.

Hoping you try making these easy crepes at home because they are the perfect addition to your next Sunday brunch also, this is the only crepe recipe you will ever need in your life. I can’t tell you how many times I come back to this recipe because it’s so easy. 

How to Make the Easiest Crepes Ever! 

Combine ingredients in a nutri bullet, blender, or whisk it together in a bowl. If doing it with an appliance, add all the ingredients into the blender/nutribullet and give it a 2-minute mix, the batter will be runny and with no clumps just like you need it, or, you could just whisk it up in a bowl.

In a mixing bowl, add 1 cup of warm milk with 1 cup of flour. Whisk together till there are no clumps from the flour then add another cup of warm milk.

Lightly beat 1 large egg and add to the milk and flour. Add in 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1/2 Tablespoon of sugar, and 2 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil. Combine.  Once finished, it will be runny and that is how you want it!
