    A bit too much butter in this recipe, and unfortunately the texture and taste wasn’t what I was looking for. I was really hoping to recreate the crepes from crepe carts dotted around Paris.

    I liked this recipe, and even “reducing” it works well. The taste is great and I have used it for sweet and savory recipes. However, I do use less butter, because the 6 tablespoons were too much and left them greasy. I recommend using 4, i you don’t like a grease crepe.

    Delicious and so easy! I was nervous about flipping but it worked out just fine! We froze the extras and reheated as we wanted them and they tasted fresh when we ate them.

    I didn't make any changes to the recipe and I served it with a hazelnut spread. They turned out yummy! This was the first time I made crêpes. But I'm rating 3 stars because I don't have a point of comparison.

    Awesome. Simple easy. Used about 3 TBSP of veg oil as I forgot to mix it all with the blender and just whisked it in.

    Delicious! I'm thrilled to know how to whip these up now and was very happy to learn that it's so quick and easy. My son is the happiest of all, and it's something we now enjoy doing together instead of buying them.

    Go to crêpe recipe! We make this often for breakfast. It is a great recipe that feeds our family of three with a few extra for snacks later. We love them with lemon & powdered sugar 🍋 🥞 It’s simple and delicious.

    They were good. Recommend some fruit or syrup for flavor. 🙂

    I had fun with this. We got creative with our fillings. Rolled up some peanut butter, honey, jelly, cinnamon, brown sugar. Simple and easy.

    It turned out really well! Make sure you add things to them like berries or syrup otherwise they can be bland. Which is obvious. Also I changed the recipe to make 8 crêpes and it only made 7 and a mini one. A very small one. But that was probably user error. Other than that I really recommend it. They are very easy to make

    Works great as is! I use mixture of oil and butter in the pan to prevent sticking and get a nice golden brown colour
    oh the kids loved it! we put strawberries, bananas, chocolate syrup, and whipped cream. it was a hit!

    Easy and so good! I had to add a 1/4 cup more flour because it seemed a little thin, but otherwise fantastic! It may have been my 1% lactose-free milk that skinnied it down!
