Because this recipe is so simple, it’s important to make sure the ingredients are measured precisely. After trying and testing these vegan crepes 4 times, I finally got a ratio I am happy to share with you. Now you have my foolproof recipe, make sure to read on to learn all my tips and tricks.

What Type Of Pan Should I Use?

It’s important to use the right pan for this recipe, especially because these vegan crepes are so low in fat. When crepes don’t have a form of ‘fat’ like oil or butter added to them in either the batter or in the pan, they will stick. So make sure to use a good quality non stick pan.

Number 1 Tip

Prepare your topping first

These vegan crepes are so thin that they cool quickly. If you prepare your toppings before hand this gives you amble of time to eat them fresh and hot! In France we call this ‘Mise en Place’, which means to be prepared and organised.

FAQ’s

Whats the best way to cook lots of crepes?

If you are looking to save time you should use 2 or 3 pans over different burners, this will drastically increase your crepe making speed! If you haven’t made crepes before start with 1 pan and work yourself up when you feel comfortable.

The best way to keep crepes warm

Once you have finished cooking a crepe, place it neatly in an oven proof dish with tin foil covering the top. You can either keep this dish in a preheated oven at 100c, or cook all the crepes then reheat them in at 150c for 2-3 minutes.

Can I use a electric whisk?

Yes electric whisks are fine to use. One problem though is that it will incorporate a lot of air into your batter. So make sure to rest it for 15-20 minutes in the fridge before using it, to avoid air holes in your crepes.

Equipment

Ingredients
 
 

  • 200 g Plain Flour
  • 500 ml Almond milk Sweetened
  • 1 Pinch Sea salt

Instructions
 

  • Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl, make a well in the center and gradually whisk in the milk until the mixture is fully incorporated and smooth.
  • Heat a non stick pan over medium heat until hot. With one hand lift the pan from the flame and with the other hand pour in a ladle of batter. At the same time give the pan a rolling motion, rapidly distributing the batter evenly across the pan. Return the pan to the heat and leave to cook for 60-90 seconds.
  • Delicately lift the edge of the crepe with a spatula to check (after a few times you will have a feeling and everything will go automatically). Gently slide the spatula underneath the crepe and flip. You can also toss it if you prefer (it's fun but requires practice).
  • Continue to cook for about 30 seconds then remove from the pan and repeat (if your crepe sticks to the pan you either need to add a little more oil before cooking or let it cook for a longer).
  • Served immediately with your choice of toppings.

Notes

  • The pan should sizzle at contact with the batter, if it doesn’t turn up the heat slightly.

I do not use non-stick pans of any sort. Do you know how to adapt this recipe to stainless steel like they did successfully before non-stick?

Hey Wendy,

Firstly, sorry for taking so long to reply!

Since the crepe batter is so low in fat, it means they'll stick stainless steel pans. The best way to stop this is to add a good splash of oil to the pan before cooking. Then get a piece of kitchen roll and give the pan a good wiping to cover all the insider surfaces. Then after every/every other crepe, use that same kitchen roll and a small splash of oil to wipe the inside of the pan quickly.

The key is to add a light layer of 'protection' between the crepe batter and pan. Also, making sure the pan is preheated before cooking will help!

Let me know how it goes and if you need any other bits of advice. And if I take a little too long to reply, feel free to send me an email personally on my contact page.

I hope this helped, Jack
