The Perfect Crêpes!

In highschool my best friend and I would make crêpes nearly daily. We would skip school to watch Clone High and make delicious crêpes with probably way too much whipped cream (when you're in highschool that's not even a thing). Our dream at the time was to one day open a crêpe shop because we just loved them so much and our friends always loved them too.

Fast forward a couple years and we used our crêpe skills to raise money for displaced children in Thailand. We ran a weekly cafe called Project Kah Feh. "Kah Feh" is how you pronounce coffee in Thai and we would book local bands, sell Thai coffee and make these awesome crêpes. We were able to raise thousands of dollars for the children, and we got to see our dreams come to fruition, even if it was in a small scale. Today, as part of the breakfast series, I thought I would share the recipe for these delicious crêpes with you.


- 1 cup flour
-1/2 cup milk
-1/2 cup water
-2 tbsp melted butter
-1/4 tsp salt


Mix all the ingredients until the batter is smooth. Heat up a non-stick skillet on medium heat and coat with butter. Pour batter into the center of the pan until it has a diameter of about 5 inches. Then lift the pan and tilt it until the batter coats the entire bottom of the pan and is about 3mm thick. Cook for about 2 minutes and then flip and cook for about 2 more minutes. Now it's time to fill them up!
There are a few combos I always use- strawberries, bananas and nutella are a fav (and whipped cream- which I didn't have today :( but they were still super delicious). Another really delicious one is butter, lemon juice and a little sugar. You can also do the classic butter and syrup. I've had really really delicious savoury crepes too- with cheese and broccoli. Basically, the possibilities are endless. You know the drill- just follow your heart. 
Once they're filled, roll em up and enjoy! But I'm warning you now, these are so delicious that you will probably be disappointed next time you go out for crepes. These are the best ones.

Enjoy and happy breakfasting!


  1. Nutella and crepes are meant to be!
    These look so good.
    And I thinking eating crepes is a perfectly legit reason for skipping school!
