English Pancakes (Crepes)


  • 4 oz All Purpose Flour
  • 10 oz Milk
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 pinch Salt



  • Put the flour in a medium bowl.
  • Add egg and start beating (an electric hand mixer makes this easy and quick).
  • Start adding milk slowly, each time you add milk, fully incorporate it, before adding more – this will prevent lumps.
  • Once all added, let stand while you get your pancake pan/frying pan hot on the stove. It is important that the pan is hot.
  • Add oil, add a ladle of mixture and tilt pan back and forth to cover the whole surface. Once air pockets appear turn over and cook the other side. Repeat.


  • Crepes are thin, so cook quickly – make sure the pan is hot and your attention is focused.


  • These are great with jam or fresh fruit such as blueberries and bananas.
