3 easy steps

Follow these simple steps to make crepes at home. 

1. Make the batter

First of all, mix and whisk all the ingredients in a bowl until we get a creamy batter. If it has become too thick we can add more milk. It is advisable to let it rest in the fridge for an hour.

2. Cook it

The second step consists of adding a spoonful of extra virgin olive oil to the non-stick frying pan. If we have a crepe pan, it will not be necessary to grease. When the pan has heated, pour part of the batter with a ladle and spread it. When the bottom starts to brown, we flip it and cook the other side.

The first crepe is usually thrown out, for it contains too much fat and it does not look as it should. Once the first one is done, you will not even have to add oil to the pan.

3. Stack them

A good tip to keep them warm while we are preparing them is to put a saucepan with water over low heat. Place a plate with aluminum foil on top and stack the crepes. Crepes do not stick, so stacking them will not be a problem.

3. Pesto crepes

This is a curious and very delicious idea. We cut the crepe in strips and, in a frying pan, we heat pesto sauce. When it is hot enough, add it to a plate with the crepes and a few cherry tomatoes.

A very original recipe. Prepare béchamel sauce and sauté the spinach with oil and garlic. Mix the sautéed and béchamel sauce. Strip and cube chicken breast and grill it. Next, we add the chicken to the previous mix. Last step is to fill the crepe and fold.
