Basic Dessert Crepe Batter Recipe

This is our basic dessert crepe batter recipe.

These light versatile crepes are easy to make, using either an electric crepe maker or a traditional crepe pan. Traditionalists swear by a copper crepe pan and it really does help to make great crepes.

You will find a thousand ways to use them.

The recipe is just a bit sweeter than a savory crepe, great for serving with fresh strawberries, raspberries, peaches or mangoes, or drizzled with chocolate or lemon sauce.

Try the serving idea in the image: fill the dessert crepe with hazelnut cocoa spread, then top it with slices of ripe bananas. Fold the crepes in a way that displays that yummy filling and serve them with a dollop of whipped cream if you want. Or try a drizzle of chocolate sauce and a few more slices of bananas. It’s a fabulous and easy dessert recipe for any night of the week.

    Best Strawberry Tip …

    by Charlie Lee
    (Toronto, Canada)

    It’s strawberry season!

    I once saw on TV a great tip for removing the white parts of the strawberry, without cutting off the tops. (This saves more of the ripe fruit to eat.)

    After washing and drying the fruit, gently pull off the green top of each berry. Then, using a medium-sized straw, insert the straw from the top of the berry, right through to the bottom. The straw removes the center (white) part of the fruit and leaves you with perfect ripe product for slicing or serving whole.
