  • 1 1/3 cups flour
  • 2 cups milk non-fat reduced fat or whole milk
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 tsp salt
  • butter for greasing the pan


  • Mix well (or blend) all the ingredients together, excluding the butter.
  • Heat a lightly-buttered frying pan over a medium-high heat.
  • Pour the batter onto the pan, using about 1/4 of a cup for each scoop.
  • Tilt the pan and rotate it with a circular motion to help the batter spread evenly.
  • Cook for about 1 minute per side on medium heat. Repeat until the batter is finished.


While cooking crepes, you don’t have to grease the pan with butter for every single one. Grease it once just before cooking the first crepe and this should be enough. Use just a little bit of butter to prevent sticking. You may also choose to substitute butter with coconut oil.
