Born in France and taken to all corners of Europe, the recipe for making authentic crêpes is much simpler than it may seem and tremendously versatile, because we can fill it with something sweet or salty and in both cases, it will be delicious.
It is not essential one of those round plates that we see in the stalls of the markets, just a good non-stick frying pan, a little skill and a simple recipe.
If you are fond of making them (which with this recipe is more than possible), you can get a crepe that makes your job easier, like this one from Orbegozo that has a price of 28.10 euros or this one from Cecotec for 29.90 euros. Another option is to use a crêpe pan like this one, priced at 29.99 euros, and much easier and more convenient to store in the kitchen if you have little space.

Although the original recipe for the crêpe batter is with milk, we can use a vegetable drink if we are lactose intolerant. The only thing we have to do is look for one with a mild flavor so that it does not modify the final flavor of the dough. Once the crêpes are made, we can fill them with sweet or savory flavors, we give you some examples.
Roast chicken, tomato and emmental cheese crêpes
Using the remains of a roast chicken we can prepare a light and delicious dinner in less than 15 minutes. Although we have filled these roasted chicken crêpes in this case with emmental, we can choose any cheese that we like, even fresh cheese if we want to avoid a somewhat fattier dairy.
Asparagus and brie cheese crêpes
These delicious asparagus and brie cheese crêpes are an ideal and perfect combination so as not to complicate things. They finish in the pan and you have to eat them hot to enjoy the cheese at its best.
Gazpacho crepes stuffed with ham
Slightly modifying the dough we can make gazpacho crêpes stuffed with ham, which are the alternative ideal for summer. The trick is to substitute the milk in the recipe for traditional gazpacho. Surprising and delicious.
Crêpes with prawns, spinach and basil oil
very healthy and with a fantastic flavor, perfect for summer. These crêpes with prawns, spinach and basil oil are the perfect demonstration that with this dough we can make authentic wonders.
The most traditional recipe of all and an ideal closing for a romantic dinner or for a meal with guests at home. The key to this crêpes suzette recipe is the flambé and use quality oranges so that they have that characteristic citrus sweetness.
Crêpes stuffed with apple and salted caramel
You will feel in the middle of French Brittany when you try this recipe for pancakes filled with apple and salted caramel. Subtle and delicious, and the best, if you have any left over (which I doubt), they are great from one day to the next if we warm them up a bit in the pan.
Crêpe cake with strawberries and cream
In addition to the traditional dishes, we can make a crepe cake with strawberries and perfect cream for a special occasion. It’s elegant and it’s delicious, so I’m sure it’ll be at the top of your creations as soon as you try it.
