Ingredients

  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 3/4 cup whole fat milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup flour sifted
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • extra unsalted butter
  • Your favorite toppings: fruit caramel sauce, melted chocolate, nutella or chocolate sauce, whipped cream, powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients (except the extra butter) into a blender and blend until smooth and there are no lumps. Pour batter into a bowl.
  2. Over medium heat, heat either a crepe pan or regular frying pan, and once hot melt about half teaspoon of unsalted butter — making sure to coat the pan entirely.
  3. Quickly but carefully use a ladle to pour the batter into the pan, as you do so swirl the pan around to help create an even circle.
  4. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until the crepe begins to pull away from the edge. Carefully flip over and cook another 2 minutes.
  5. Remove from the heat and stack on a plate. Add more butter to the pan and repeat.
  6. Stuff the crepes with your desired fruit and drizzle with caramel sauce or chocolate sauce. Dust with powdered sugar over the crepes before serving.
  7. If not eating straightaway allow to come to room temperature before covering with plastic wrap and storing in the refrigerator. The crepes will keep fresh for a few days.  Reheat the crepes in the microwave or in a pan before serving.

Recipe Notes

Make 10 to 12 crepes depending on the size of your pan. This recipe was made with a 9.5 inch crepe pan.
