These are a weekend walk picnic staple. What’s a French picnic without a nutella soaked crepe? – Unless there is a baguette in your basket, are you even in France!? However, to be clear, these can be whipped up and guzzled down anywhere in the world. Nutella is not obligatory either. I love mine with lemon and sugar, or when enjoyed at home, we go a bit crazy with all sorts of fresh and frozen fruit, sorbet, maple syrup… droooool!

French Crepes

  • Yield: 12 crepes 1x
  • Cuisine: French


I whip my mixture up in the blender, but a whisk or even a briskly whipped fork will do you just as well.

You will need a nice flat non-stick pan.



  • 3 eggs
  • 2 Tbs oil
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 4 Tbs sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. Add everything to your blender or bowl in the order the ingredients are listed
  2. Blend or whip vigorously until there are no lumps
  3. Heat your non-stick pan on your largest hob but at medium to low heat
  4. I do not add butter or oil to my pan, however, if your non-stick pan has seen better non-stick days, a small dab of butter or glug of oil might help, see how you go
  5. Pour roughly 1/3 cup of mixture into the pan and quickly tilt the pan around so the mixture spreads evenly to the sides
  6. Leave to cook until the entire top side has bubbled up – about 20 seconds
  7. Flip (how good are your flipping skills!? – I still use a spatula too don’t worry 😜)
  8. Cook reverse side for 30 seconds, transfer to plate to cool or eat immediately!
