• STEP 1

    Put the flour in a bowl and make a well in the centre. Pour in the egg replacement and a quarter of the milk.

  • STEP 2

    Use an electric whisk to thoroughly combine the mixture, then beat in another quarter of the milk. Once lump free, mix in the remaining milk. Leave to rest for 20 mins. Stir again before using.

  • STEP 3

    Heat a small non-stick frying pan with a splash of oil. When hot, pour a small amount of the mixture into the pan and swirl around to coat the base – you want a thin layer.

  • STEP 4

    Cook for a few mins until golden brown on the bottom, then turn over and cook until golden on the other side. Repeat until you have used all the mixture, stirring the mixture between pancakes and adding more oil to the frying pan as necessary.

  • STEP 5

    Serve with an orange wedge and a drizzle of agave syrup or filling of your choice. Will keep refrigerated in a covered container for up to 2 days. Give it a good whisk before using.

How to make crepes vegan

We've made these crepes both dairy-free and egg-free with a few simple tweaks. A plant-based milk alternative such as coconut or hemp milk works well in the batter along with sunflower oil, while an egg replacer is used as a binding agent.

Can these vegan crepes be made gluten-free?

It is possible to make these gluten-free by replacing the plain flour with gluten-free flour instead.

Vegan crepe fillings

There are plenty of options to choose from:

Start with a spread:

  • Melted pure dark chocolate
  • Maple syrup
  • Nut butters
  • Fruit compotes
  • Plant-based yogurt
  • Vegan caramelised biscuit spread

Then add toppings, if you wish such as the following:

  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Sliced bananas
  • Chopped nuts
  • Raisins
  • Crushed vegan biscuits
  • Vegan chocolate sprinkles
  • Desiccated coconut
