Ingredients

12 portion(s)

  • 500 grams Milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 250 grams plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence

Recipe's preparation

    My french mothers authentic crepe recipe converted to thermomix.
  1. Place milk and eggs in bowl and mix 5 seconds on speed 4.

  2. Add the flour, sugar and salt and mix 30 seconds on speed 6.

  3. Add melted butter and vanilla essence and mix 5 seconds on speed 3.

  4. Pour into large bowl and place in fridge for 30 minutes.

  5. Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat and coat with butter (I use kitchen paper to spread it nice and evenly). Crepe pans are ideal but you can use a large fry pan too.

  6. Use a ladel to pour around a quarter of a cup worth of mixture into the pan (dependent on pan size). The trick is to lift the pan off the heat while doing it and swirl the mixture coating the bottom of the pan to form a nice thin circular crepe then return to heat.

Tip

We love these for breakfast. Spread strawberry jam on them or sprinkle with sugar and lemon juice and roll up into a log. The kids really love these too! Best served and eaten warm but can be refridgerated. Unsure about freezing as we never have any left to freeze tmrc_emoticons.;)

    Great recipe, thank you! Quick, easy and tasty. Didn't take long to get the hang of pouring out the batter to get thin delicious crepes. I made these for Father's Day brekkie for my husband and toddler, they went down very well with lemon, sugar and a smidge of vanilla ice cream.

  • I cannot rave about these

    Submitted by raspberryz on 20. June 2015 - 14:06.

    I cannot rave about these enough. Just beautiful. I make batches of this, cook and freeze them individually and bag them all up to take out when needed for midweek breakfast for family, breakfast in seconds. Can't make enough of them. Never bothered to make crepes before as I thought they were too fiddly. Now prefer making them to pancakes and because I make them so large you can pull fillings on easily. Tried cooked cooled mushrooms/garlic/spring onions and grated cheese folded up in crepe and heated/toasted slightly on sandwich press. Tasted exactly like my favourite from a crepe place I used to go to. You can try  making endless combo's both sweet and savoury!. Thanks for a great recipe this is my new favourite thermy recipe yet!

    These are fantastic and have become a family favourite. I have to make the batter the night before or I'll get complaints about the 30 min wait in the morning. Thanks for a great recipe!

    Submitted by Tiny on 28. November 2014 - 12:08.

    Great success, thank you.

    This quantity made 8 dinner plate sized crepes easily.

    Next time, I will add a bit more milk to make them a bit runnier to get them a bit thinner.

    I made an orange sauce from the Taste.com site to turn them into crepe suzettes, which was a huge dinner party success.  I may try to adapt the sauce recipe for Thermo, or hope that someone clever will.

    Tres Bon! I attempted a savory version without the sugar and vanilla, then added different combos of cheddar, cooked chicken, shallots, bacon and mushrooms as fillings. The taste was fantastic; my "plating up" needs work. Family exceptionally happy.
