How to make crepes: classic and vegan recipe (crepes without eggs). Practical advice on kitchen utensils to use and ideas on how to fill sweet and savory crepes.

The Crepes delight the palate of adults and children. Between Sweet crepesthe most popular ones immediately stands out the Nutella one, but what about thesavory crepeswith meats and cheeses? They are very good even if not very dietetic! If not abused, the Crepes they can also be eaten by those who are attentive to the shape, after all it would be a shame to give up those few pleasures in life, wouldn't it? So let's go to the supermarket and get what we need ... .. and if you don't know how to make crepes, no problem, we will shortly provide you with the recipe.

What you need to make crepes

In addition to the ingredients, for the preparation ofSweet crepesissalty, someone recommends buying onecrepe maker, that is, a kitchen accessory equipped with a non-stick electric plate. The "electric crepes" are comfortable but if you have the classic kitchen stove, the electric crepe maker is completely superfluous. An electric crepe maker can be convenient for those who want to prepare breakfast on the terrace, therefore away from the electric stove ... Otherwise a simple non-stick pan will suffice. Indeed, if you really want to preparelarge crepes and slap-up, the same as those you buy on the street, then you should buy a professional non-stick pan with a diameter of 28 cm.

Among the various products on the market I recommend the one I have been using for a lifetime. A non-stick die-cast aluminum pan that I use to prepare a large number of dishes and also to plate sandwiches.

For all information on the product described, I refer you to the dedicated Amazon page, where the crepe panyou buy at a price of 25.99 euros and free shipping: 28 cm professional pan

You will notice that it exists in a single package or combined with a wooden spatula ... I recommend that you buy it in a single package (well, the spatula costs only 3.99 euros but I'm sure you will never use it! I got it but you don't need it) .

Why choose this one? Because all the others are 20 cm thick, thicker and therefore more difficult to heat up and because it offers an excellent non-stick and scratch-resistant coating ... Of course you will find another with similar characteristics at a lower price ... so be it! ;)

How to make Crepes, the ingredients

Useful information: before making the crepes, get a blender and a large non-stick pan, even better the specific one for making crepes, no spatula is needed. Here's what you need:

  • 500 ml of milk
  • 1 small egg
  • 250 grams of flour

With this dough they preparesweet or savory crepes. For savory crepes, add salt and / or other optional spices such as oregano, paprika or pepper.

Homemade crepes in a bottle or in the blender

Online a video in which a boy prepares crepes by shaking a plastic bottle is popular. Yes, it can be effective as well, you should put all the ingredients in a wide mouth bottle and shake the bottle after capping it.

I do not recommend this method because the flour is easy to lump… without sifting it or doing anything else, you can prepare the crepes comfortably in the blender.

  1. Pour the flour, milk and egg into the blender.
  2. Run at full speed for about 30 seconds.
  3. The dough for the sweet or savory crepes is ready.

Heat the non-stick pan and grease it with a very thin layer of butter in the case of sweet crepes or brush a drop of oil in the case of savory crepes.

The non-stick pan should only be greased the first time, regardless of how many crepes you prepare!

When the pan is just hot, pour a ladle of liquid for the 28 cm pan.

The dough for making crepes is liquid and should be rolled out by slightly rotating the non-stick pan as soon as it is hot. In this way the liquid, touching the various points of the pan will solidify, giving you back your giant crepes!

How to fill crepes

The Crepes par excellence are those prepared with Nutella, but they can be stuffed in many ways. It can become a savory dish, just stuff it with vegetables, cheese or other.

The procedure is simple, once the Crepes is ready, stuff it with the foods you prefer. You can also remove it from the pan still raw and then put it in the oven for a few minutes already stuffed, so as to melt the cheeses inside.

How to make crepes without eggs, vegan recipe

Process and cooking have the same methods seen before. What vary are the ingredients. To grease the pan, use canola oil or sunflower oil for thesweet crepesand olive oil for the salty one.
