Crepes may sound like a fancy French pastry, but in reality they are very simple to make. They are also very versatile, they can be savory or sweet, depending on the filling.

Many people shy away from making crepes because they get intimidated by some of the equipment they see being used at specialty restaurants and cafes to create these ultra slim crepes that fold as if they were delicate silk. But all you really need is a non-stick frying pan, some grease, and a good spatula.

My first encounter with this delicious stuff, or “nalesniki” was in Poland, where my grandmother would quickly whip them up for me as a snack after school. She would often fill them with fruit preserves and top them off with a generous spoon of sour cream.

My grandma loved butter. She refused to use margarine or substitute oils. And to make the taste even richer, she would melt some butter and add it to the crepe batter. She would also fry them on butter instead of oil, making them even more delicious, despite being a little thicker than most crepes I currently see today.

The bottom line, don’t worry about the thickness of your crepe. With a good frying pan and a little practice, your crepes will be just as delicious.

In this recipe I also added lemon juice, lemon zest, and vanilla extract for the extra flavor. You can also add an extra spoon of sugar, if you prefer your crepes to be on the sweeter side.

For this recipe, I either use wheat flour from Poland type 550 (Luksusowa) or type 500 (Poznanska).



  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 whole eggs
  • 1.5 cups 2% milk
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp butter melted
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice optional
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract optional
  • 1 pinch lemon or orange zest optional


  1. In a medium bowl add all the ingredients together.

  2. Mix well, until all the ingredients are combined into a smooth pouring batter.

  3. Over a medium, heat up your frying pan and grease it with some butter. With a ladle take some of the batter and pour it over the pan as you gently tilt the pan so that the batter spreads over the surface evenly. 

  4. Fry it for about 20 seconds until you notice a golden rim around your crepe. Lift it gently with a generous spatula and turn the crepe over to the other side and fry it for another 20 seconds. 

  5. Repeat these steps to make more crepes.

  6. You can serve your crepes with fruit preserves, chocolate hazelnut spread, or simply with honey, butter, and lemon.
