Ingredients

Instructions

  • Watch the one minute recipe video to see all instruction steps.
  • Add the plain flour, cornstarch, and brown sugar to a mixing bowls. Mix with a whisk.
  • Progressively add the soy milk to the melange while beating it with the whisk.
  • Add the vanilla extract and beat until totally smooth.
  • Heat up a crepe pan on medium heat.
  • Slightly oil the heated pan with a soaked paper towel or brush.
  • Mix the batter before making each crepe.
  • Using a soup ladle, pour 3/4 scoop of batter in the hot pan and twist quickly with a circular movement. Fill the middle with remaining batter if necessary.
  • Cook crepe on medium heat for about 2 minutes, until edges of the crepes become slightly crisp. Flip the crepe over and cook again for 30 seconds to 1 minute, depending on how cooked you want your crepe.
  • Repeat until the batter is empty. You don’t need to oil the pan before every crepe, only once every 3 crepes is enough, or when the pan gets sticky (I use and recommend this non-stick crepe pan to make crepes).
  • Stack the cook crepes on a plate.
  • Serve warm, and enjoy with filling of your choice! (See recipe description for filling recommendations.)

Notes

-Make sure the pan is hot when pouring in the batter for the first crepe, so the batter starts cooking instantly and evenly.
-It is very important to move and twist the pan quickly as soon as pouring in the batter. A crepe is thin and therefore cooks really fast. Don’t give up if your first crepe is a mess, practice makes perfect!
-The less you cook your crepe the softer it’s gonna be. For well cooked crepes, wait until the edges are slightly brown to flip them over, and cook for an extra minute. For softer crepes, flip as soon as the crepes are set at the surface, and cook for an extra 30 seconds.
-If your crepes are not warm when served, cover with another plate and microwave for 40 seconds, until warm. Uncover the crepes as soon as comes out of microwave, so the crepes don’t become moist.
