There’s nothing like a delicious stack of French crepes for breakfast! Light and fluffy, these easy-to-make crepes are a family favorite. I remember when my mom used to make them on special occasions, like my birthday or when we were expecting visitors. They were always a hit!
Now I make them myself, with a little twist. I like to add a bit of orange zest to the batter for a slight citrus flavor. I also like to top them with a sprinkle of confectioner’s sugar and a sprig of herbs – it adds a nice touch.
Making crepes is actually quite easy. All you need is a blender, a bowl, a non-stick skillet, a spatula, and a ladle. Start by blending together all the ingredients until you have a smooth batter. Then, heat up your skillet over medium heat and use a ladle to pour the batter onto the skillet. Be sure to swirl it around to get a nice, even layer of the crepe. Let it cook for about 1 minute, until the edges start to curl, and then flip it over to the other side. Let it cook for another minute and then transfer it to a plate. Repeat with the rest of the batter until you have a stack of crepes.
You can serve your crepes with butter and jam, or even some warm honey and fresh berries. You can also dress them up with a dollop of whipped cream, a sprinkle of confectioner’s sugar, or even some cooked apples and cinnamon. No matter how you serve them, you’ll be sure to enjoy these Deliciously Easy French Crepes!

– For a savory crepe, omit the sugar and add a pinch of fresh herbs.
