How to Make Delicious Crêpes – a recipe by from September 2012, Sony HX30v

In the next episode of “Cooking with Geoff”, Geoff from shows how to make delicious, “no-tear” crepes.

Crêpes are perfect for breakfast served with fresh fruit or cream, and can also be made savory with fillings such as seafood, roasted vegetables, or other proteins.

This recipe was recommended to Geoff by his friend Catintherain. Her blog is at:

3/4 cup of 2% or homo milk
1/2 cup of water
2 large eggs, Free Range
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons butter (unsalted), melted.
Plus additional melted butter for brushing on the pan
A pinch of salt.

The secret!! – to making crepes that do not tear or rip:
As shown in the video, it’s really important to let the batter sit for at least 1 hour in the fridge before making the crepes. That will make the crepes much spongier and less likely to tear. The reason for this change in texture is due to the gluten in the crepe batter beginning to form and the bubbles get removed.

    It looks delicious, Geoff. Here in Germany, crêpes with Nutella are especially popular. Nutella is a sweet bread spread made of hazelnuts (and sugar, of course), it should be available in Canada, too. Here in Berlin, at touristy places, there are often street-vendors with an open stand who sell crêpes with Nutella, and also with ice-cream in summertime.

    nice, thanks Woggyflush! Yes I have had Nutella here in Vancouver, it is yummy!! :)

    Very nice! You’re more of a perfectionist than I am. I just use a whisk and eyeball the quantities. Your crepes look great – I prefer them with slightly crispy edges like that.
