Holy Crepe!


After a brilliantly satiating meal, Alex and his dinner guests arranged themselves around a giant plate of crepes and an equally giant jar of Nutella.

We loosened our belts a notch to allow the entire plate and jar to fill our bellies. Taking turns with the knife we continued to eat, drink and talk (mostly about Felix Baumgartner) the night away. I was so pleased to participate in crepe making (truely, you can roll, wrap, stuff, dip your crepe any way you’d like) that I contacted the French guest for his recipe.

This recipe is brought to you by Thaddee who swears it is quite simple…


  • Serves 2-20 depending on the groups will power.


  • 500g of flour
  • 50g of sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon of oil
  • Between 1 and 1.5L of milk (depending of the consistency you want, I usually go for 1.25 to 1.5L)


Then it is really easy!

You put all the flour in a big bowl and make a hole where you put all the eggs and start mixing the eggs. Then you add some milk and start mixing the eggs, the milk and the top of the flour together. You add the milk little by little and continue mixing everything while trying not to make lumps (so don’t mix too much flour at the same time). At the end add the oil and the sugar and mix everything.

Then you put a pan with some oil on medium heat (5-7) and wait for 2-3 minutes till it gets hot. Then you put a ladleful of the mix in the pan and wait for the first side to be cooked, you flip it, and wait a little more for the other side.

You have a crepe!

Make sure you oil the pan between for every crepe or every other crepe. We usually put oil on kitchen roll and then rub the pan with the kitchen roll.

If there is anything you don’t understand, just ask, I did not know many words so I just translated them but I am not sure it is the best translation.
