Easy Blender Crepes

Easy Blender Crepes ohsweetbasil.com

Our kids only want crepes. And not just any crepes, Cade’s easy blender crepes. Every Saturday we let them pick breakfast and it used to be a variety of things, pancakes, waffles, crepes, ebelskivers, and more and now it’s just blender crepes. We never thought we would say this, but Cade and I are getting a little tired of making crepes.

Why do kids get stuck on one food? Do any of you have children and have you experienced that? For a while our daughter only wanted a “banana boat” every day for lunch. It’s basically peanut butter on one slice of bread, stick half a banana in it, fold up the sides with toothpicks as oars and a drizzle of honey over the top. Every. Day. Now she wont touch it. She burned out! So far that has not happened with the crepes. Man, they are so tender and delicious though. At least they’ve got great taste.

Are Crepes The Same As Pancakes?

The main difference in crepes and pancakes is that pancakes have a leavening agent such as baking soda or baking powder.

Crepe batter has no leavening agent.

Pancakes are thick and fluffy.

Crepes are thin and flat.

Can Crepes Be Made With Whole Wheat Flour?

You absolutely can make crepes with whole wheat flour.

The key to whole wheat crepes is the consistency of the batter and the heat of the pan.

The batter should be thin enough that it easily covers the pan.

The pan should be warm enough that as the batter hits the pan, it begins to cook.

Can You Substitute Something Else for Milk in Crepes?

Crepes can be made with water instead of milk, but they will not taste as good.

Soy milk or almond milk are both better substitutes for milk when making dairy-free crepes.

  • Thanks so much for this simple recipe! I have been wanting crepes for a while now, and I was wondering if it is possible to substitute with a gluten free flour? And if so, which would you recommend to keep the same great taste?? Thanks so much!

    • Hi Ruthie,
      Unfortunately I have not tested with a gluten free flour so I can’t guarantee results.

  • Carrian,

    What size pan do you use?
    I’m looking forward to trying out this recipe.
    Thanks a bunch!

    • Hey Becky! We use a 9.5 or 10″ pan. But really, any size is fine. It only will change how big they end up.

  • I have no kids. But I do have a husband who only wants cereal EVERY DAY for breakfast and DINNER.
    Basically, the same as having a child. I do not understand the cereal obsession.
    But, i think these blender crepes might get him off the cereal kick. I love crepes, and these are look delish! Pinned!
