6 tbsp white flour (all purpose) 50 g
1 pinch salt 0.1 g
1 cup milk, partly skimmed, 2% 250 mL
4 eggs size large
4 tsp canola oil 20 mL


  1. Add the flour to a bowl. Add a pinch of salt and a small quantity of milk. Mix well with a whisk to avoid lumps. Incorporate the eggs, one at a time. Mix until smooth. Let the batter stand about 2 hours in the refrigerator, up to overnight.
  2. Lightly oil a 7-inch (18 cm) cast-iron skillet. Heat over low heat. Add about 1/4 cup of the batter to the skillet. Swirl it around so that it forms a thin layer.
  3. Cook about 1 min, until the top of the crêpe is dry. Turn it and cook the other side until lightly brown, no more than 1 min. The first crêpe almost never works, so discard it if necessary. Each egg yields about 3 crêpes.
  4. Keep the cooked crêpes on a dish, covering each crêpe with aluminum foil, not to let them dry. Serve right away or use later in another recipe.


Crêpes may be covered with aluminum foil and wrapped in a plastic bag then frozen.
