A versatile crêpe recipe whose flavours can be set alight with your choice of sweet or savoury filling.


  • 230g plain flour
  • 500ml whole milk
  • 25g unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 0.5 teaspoon salt


  • STEP 1
    Warm the milk in a saucepan or microwave until it is tepid.
  • STEP 2
    Melt the butter in a microwave or saucepan.
  • STEP 3
    In a bowl, whisk together the warm milk, melted butter, flour, sugar, vanilla extract and salt til a loose batter is formed. Cover and set aside to rest for one hour.
  • STEP 4
    Heat a pan over a medium heat and lightly coat the pan with some melted butter. Ladle in enough batter to thinly coat the bottom of the pan (around 3 tablespoons) and cook for around a minute. Flip and cook the other side which will cook a lot quicker.
  • STEP 5
    Continue in this way until you have used up all your batter and serve with any sweet or savoury topping of your choosing.
