For people who care about their food


Here’s a basic recipe for crepes from my old cook’s notebook. It works every time and is very simple to do.


  • 50g plain flour
  • 1tbsp oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 150ml milk
  • melted butter


Put the flour in a bowl and add the oil and eggs. Add the milk a little at a time to make a smooth batter. Add the melted butter. Cook (both sides) in a greased pan.

If you need more specific help than that, please see my photo essay about making buckwheat pancakes. It’s exactly the same technique.

Sorry, I forgot to take photos of the basic crepes themselves, but I went on to fill them with banana and other things so you can see a picture of them there.



Meanwhile, here’s a VideoJug clip of how to make French crepes.
