Are you looking for a good crepe recipe?
My family loves homemade crepes! They would eat them every day if I let them. What's not to love about warm crepes with nutella, strawberries, bananas and cream?
We love making crepes for Valentine's Day, New Year's Day or on a lazy Saturday morning.
How To Make Crepes
French crepes are so easy to make. Making a crepe batter will only take you about 5 minutes and then you're ready to cook!
Truth be told, my 10 year old loves making crepes, so I put him in charge of cooking the crepes once the batter is made.
The only "hard thing" about making crepes is that it will take you some time to cook them. Crepes are not a fast breakfast, but the good news is that you can do something else while you are cooking crepes.
If you want crepes for breakfast and aren't a morning person like me, you can even make them the night before.

Keeping Crepes Warm
To keep the crepes warm after making them, simply cover a stack of crepes a piece of aluminum foil.
Freezing & Refrigerating Crepes
Can crepes be frozen?
Yes! Crepes will keep up to a month in the freezer. To freeze crepes, stack a batch on foil or wax paper. Insert into a large plastic food storage bag and twist as much air out as possible.
To use the crepes once frozen, let the crepes warm up to room temperature. They should peel apart as you gently pull them.
If you are in a hurry, you can warm the stack of crepes in a low oven. Be sure to cover them with foil while you warm them so they don't dry out.
