Step 1: Prep Ingredients

Before you get into making the crepes, it’s a good idea to gather up all the ingredients you’ll be using. While this varies from person to person, some of the popular ones include bananas, strawberries, blueberries, grapes, whipped cream, regular cream, peanut butter and more.

Step 2: Whisk Batter

Start by putting 1 tablespoon of butter into the microwave and heating it on high for 20 to 40 seconds. Make sure that not all of it is melted, then mix it up with a whisk in a large bowl. Now dump in the rest of the ingredients: eggs, flour, sugar, salt, and milk. Mix the batter up with a whisk until it’s smooth.

Step 3: Cook the Crepes

With the flame set to medium, heat your non-stick pan for about a minute. Add about two spoonfuls of crepe batter to the pan. Rotate the pan around until the crepe batter is evenly leveled across the entire thing.

When you notice that the edges are slightly brown, it’s time to flip it over. Cook the other side for about 30 seconds. If you see browning, it’s done.
