This is a similar recipe to my Grandmothers, but as you may have learned from watching your Grandmother cook anything she probably didn’t use measuring utensils...other than her hands and eyes 😁 Crepes are like a pancake, but better! You can stuff them with jams, jelly’s, butter, Nutella, peanut butter, eggs, sausage, bacon 🥓 You can even go super savory with pulled chicken, pulled pork or braised short ribs. You can go more of the dessert route with apple compote filling or sliced strawberries with mascarpone whipped cream!

I made these into a heart shape for Valentine’s Day for my daughter, but the round version is much easier to accomplish!

Don’t these look so scrumptious and toasty😋. If you make these for a special occasion, chocolate is always the way to go! Either chocolate chips or Nutella, yum!

Since this is a thin batter, you could create these crepes into any shape your heart desires (pun intended 😍). You can also color the batter and make some fancy pancake art! I may try the pancake art one day so stay tuned! I hope you enjoyed this recipe!
