These chocolate French crepes are the best treats to whip up on a Saturday morning. They're incredibly thin and light and are amazing when they are served with fruit, whipped cream, chocolate spread, or powdered sugar (or all 4 we won't tell lol!) This recipe has a little twist on traditional crepes as it has the addition of cocoa powder. These crepes are so soft and thin which makes it easier to have more than one in the morning😉. The best part is: it doesn’t take a long time to make. You can enjoy it with tea or coffee (perfect Saturday morning amiright?). Happy baking!

  • 1 cup + 3 tbsp milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk your milk and eggs until combined.
Add salt, granulated sugar, and vanilla to the mixture. Remove any lumps that have appeared by whisking. Add the butter and mix again.
Using a sifter, pour in the flour and cocoa powder. This will reduce the amount of lumps in the batter which will ensure soft and thin crepes. Mix until incorporated. (You can also use a blender which will drastically reduce the lumps)
Heat up your pan and lightly grease using a little butter or oil.
Pour about 1/4 cup of the batter on the pan and evenly distribute it around.
When the sides begin to turn darker brown (which takes about 1-2 minutes), flip the crepe to the other side.
Remove it from the pan after about 1-2 minutes or until it has turned into a lightly brownish color.
Repeat the previous step with the remainder of your batter.
Top off with your favorite toppings (like whipped cream and strawberries) or keep plain.
  • When you pour your batter onto your pan, immediately start to swirl it around the pan to insure a thin even crepe.
  • Make sure you get rid of any lumps in your batter. This will ensure a soft and thin crepe. Using a blender helps to make this process easier.
