I love crepes

Savory crepes, sweet crepes, dessert crepes, breakfast crepes, crepe cakes...you name it, I'll eat it.

...well, unless you put mushrooms in it...ewww.
This morning, I was starving. Yes, literally. Anyhoo, I was SO VERY HUNGRY, but I didn't want yet another peanut butter sandwich (my way of gaining back the weight I lost after surgery XD), or bowl of Cocoa Krispies. I thought to myself "I'll make pancakes!"...but then I decided I didn't want to, because I'd made so so so many batches of pancakes this past week. And then, like a stroke of brilliance, it came to me.


Yummy yummy crepes.

My usual crepe is filled with nutella and whipped cream, but I had neither, so I took this as an opportunity to go a healthier route. Strawberry banana crepes with honey.
Yum yum yum.
I also decided to make scrambled eggs for when my dad woke up. (he still hasn't, so I put most of the egg mixture back in the fridge. What a lazy bum :) )

Anyhoo, here's what you came for!


This is what happens when you get overzealous in your flipping XD

Can you read my awful handwriting?

Seriously, can you? It's awful :P

Line up the bananas

Then the strawberries

Add some honey

Roll it up!



1 cup of flour
2 eggs
1 cup of milk
1 cup of water (um, I think these liquid measurements are right. The stuff's gonna be the consistency of water, nearly XD)
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp melted butter (or oil, if your name is Kiara and you're too lazy to melt butter ;) )

Heat up a pan over medium heat

Whisk together the ingredients, adding the liquid slowly (this helps reduce lumps)
Beat it until it's smooth
Spray the pan lightly with oil/cooking spray/whatever.
Add 1/4 cup - 1/2 of a cup of batter, depending on the size of your pan.
Swirl it to coat the pan! If it's hard at first, that's okay, it gets easier with practice
Let cook for 2 minutes. FLIP! Be daring and do the one handed flip...it's fun :) But if you can't, it's okay to use a spatula.
Cook for another minute, then store on a plate under a towel while you make the rest.
Repeat until the batter's alllll gone.
Fill it' with whatever you want! (but if you want cheese, I'd stick it back in the pan for a little bit, enough to melt the cheese. The professionals add cheese while the second side is cooking, but if you're making a ton to serve at once, that may not work out )


Do it.

oink oink.



  1. Your crepes look great! I have never made these actually, I should soon!

  2. Wow! How cute are these crepes, the strawberry/banana ones must be delicious!

  3. Thanks, guys!
    Oh man, the strawberry/banana combo is classic for a reason. The bananas are sweet and creamy, and then the strawberries give it a burst of flavor...mmm.

  4. You need Nutella. For serious. Best stuff on the planet.

  5. Your powers of persusion are insane. I ran to the kitchen and made these, despite being home alone and not hungry at all. Now I need to figure out what i'm going to do with the stack of crepes sitting in my fridge...

  6. Well, you could cut them into squares and fold them into crepe-r cranes. XD
