About Lemon Crepes
Crepes are thin, buttery French pancakes with crispy, lacy edges. They can be made with ingredients and equipment you probably already have at home.
Crepes are usually either filled and folded, or filled and rolled. They're a delicious breakfast for a special day, especially since it's easy for everyone to customize their own.
Most people flavor their crepes with the filling, but I decided to add the flavor to the crepe itself with lemon zest and lemon juice. The citrus flavor pairs well with sweet berries.
The crepes themselves are made from seven ingredients.
- all-purpose flour
- white sugar
- kosher salt
- a lemon
- melted butter
For filling, I used seedless raspberry jam and fresh raspberries. You can use whatever flavor of jam you prefer that pairs well with lemon: strawberry, mixed berry, cherry, peach, etc. Top the crepes with whatever fresh fruit complements your filling.
It couldn't be simpler to make the crepe batter: mix everything in a blender!
After blending the batter, pour it into an airtight container and refrigerate for at least one hour, and up to 24 hours, to allow the batter to rest and the gluten strands to relax, otherwise, your crepes will be tough.
When ready to cook, place the melted butter for cooking next to your stovetop and place a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Pour 1 teaspoonful of butter into the pan and swirl it around, then pour ¼ cup of the crepe batter into the pan.
Swirl the pan around so that the entire bottom of the skillet is coated in a thin layer of batter.
After about a minute, once the edges look dry and light brown, carefully flip the crepe over and cook another 45 or so seconds on the other side.
Repeat with remaining batter, adding 1 teaspoonful of melted butter to the pan before adding the next ¼ cupful of batter.
When you're ready to serve, place a crepe on a plate. Spread about a tablespoonful of jam on the crepe.
Fold the crepe in half.
Fold it again, and top with fresh raspberries and dust with powdered sugar.
Whether you are dairy-free or gluten-free, you can still make these crepes with these easy subsitutions.
- Dairy-free - substitute an equal amount of a dairy-free milk such as almond milk or coconut milk, and canola or coconut oil instead of the butter.
- Gluten-free - use 1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour instead of ¾ regular all-purpose flour. Add ¼ teaspoon xantham gum if your gluten-free flour doesn't already contain it.
You will need a blender to mix the batter. If you don't have a blender, you can use a food processor, or place the ingredients in a tall storage container and use an immersion blender.
To cook the crepes, you will need an 8-inch nonstick pan, and a very thin spatula.
For stacking the crepes as you cook them, you will need parchment or wax paper.
Stack the crepes between layers of parchment or wax paper, and wrap the stack in plastic wrap or place in a large zip-top bag. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Have realistic expectations. At least a few of your crepes are going to rip. Your edges are going to be uneven. They will still be tasty!
For the crepes
- ¾ cup (3.25 oz/92 g) all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons (.8 oz/22 g) sugar
- Pinch of kosher salt
- Zest and juice of one lemon
- 1 ¼ cups (10 fl oz/295 mL) milk, at room temperature
- 2 large eggs, at room temperature
- 2 tablespoons (1 oz/30 g) unsalted butter, melted. and cooled
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
For the filling
- ½ cup (6 oz/170 g) seedless raspberry jam
- 1 pint fresh raspberries
- ¼ cup (1 oz/28 g) powdered sugar, for dusting
- Combine all of the crepe ingredients in a blender. Blend until fully mixed.
- Pour the batter into an airtight storage container and refrigerate at least 1 hour, and up to 24 hours.
- When ready to cook, place a nonstick pan over medium-low heat, and place the melted butter for cooking next to the stovetop.
- Pour 1 teaspoonful of butter into the nonstick pan, then pour ¼ cup (60 ml) of the batter into the pan, and gently tilt it to cover the surface with a thin layer of batter.
- Cook for about 60 seconds, until the edges look dry and light brown, then very carefully flip the crepe over with a very thin spatula. Cook another 45 to.60 seconds.
- Slide the crepe out of the pan onto a plate and cover with wax paper.
- Repeat with another teaspoonful of butter and ¼ cup (60 ml) batter, placing wax paper over each crepe, until all the batter is cooked.
- To serve, place a crepe on a plate. Spread 1 tablespoon of jam on the crepe, and fold it in half, then fold in half again. Top with fresh raspberries and sprinkle with powdered sugar, then serve.
