Beginner’s Luck – Breakfast Crêpes

If the way to a man’s heart is food, housemates have to be similar, right?

Well my housemates are far from being men. In fact, though we sometimes have the appetites of men, we don’t crave large amounts of bacon and sausage to start off our weekend. So, in preparation for Saturday breakfasts next year, I instead tried my hand (or oven mitt?) at crêpes.

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 ½ cup milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • butter
  • optional toppings


Whisk egg and milk together until mixed. Add flour and continue whisking until smooth. Heat a frying pan to medium/low heat, and grease pan with about 1/4 teaspoon of butter. Ladle ½ cup of batter into the center of the greased pan. Pick up the pan and tilt it around until the batter is circular and even. When the crepe is lightly golden, remove from pan or flip to cook the other side (I flipped mine, but you don’t need to). Makes 9-10 crêpes.

I served mine with raspberries, sliced bananas and strawberries. We also spread Nutella on the inside and top with whipped cream. Perfect for a sweet Saturday morning!
