Here is an authentic French crêpe recipe, taken from the index of Famous French Desserts. While it does list crêpe recipes centering around desserts, you can use this particular one for any purpose and any time of the day.
You may have garnered how to make crêpes from a previous article here, so you should follow in line with those guidelines. Once again, you can use a crêpe maker to simplify the process. You should know that these recipes do not cover which filling options you have for them, but you can read about some ideas about crêpe fillings.
This recipe take about five minutes to prepare, and about thirty minutes to fully complete. For ingredients, you will need 2 cups of flour, 2½ cups of whole milk, 4 eggs, salt (to taste), ½ of a vanilla stalk, vegetable oil for the pan, and 2 tbsp. melted butter. When you have all of these ingredients, combine them together into a bowl, and set aside.
Remove lumps from the flour and incorporate it with the salt into a large mixing bowl. Pour the eggs in the center of this mixture, and stir vigorously. Pour in the milk while stirring, until you see air bubbles starting to form in the batter. Then put in the butter, and give it another quick mix. You are done with the preparatory work.
Spread the vegetable oil all across the pan. Pour in two or three tablespoons of batter, spreading it around the pan. Cook until done, flip on the other side and you finished cooking crepes.
Crêpe Recipes depending on Ingredients and Fillings
If you make dessert crêpes, you could put mix chocolate or peanut butter in the batter for a special treat. Just like pancakes, chocolate chips work very well for these, but make sure your chips are the smaller variation. You could even mix jelly or jam into your batter before cooking.
Ultimately, all crêpe recipes follow the same blueprints. More savory dishes, like when making them for dinner, use special types of wheat flour. You can add more or less butter, different kinds of oils, and the like. If you have a certain preference over what kinds of bread you like for your meals, crêpe recipes are adaptable to change.
