Quick and Easy Crepes

Welcome to a typical crepe conversation with my children:

Boy: What’s for breakfast?
Mom: Crepes.
Boy:  Is that it?
Mom:  Isn’t that enough?
Boy:  I’m gonna still be hungry.
Mom:  What’s new?
Boy:  Can’t we have something else too? I just don’t get full on grapes.

Every time.  You’d think I’d recognize the difficulty by now in hearing the difference between the words grape and crepe, but they rhyme and confuse the children. Then they confuse the mother. And then the entire conversation is confusing.

Crepes.  They are very different than grapes. They are easy, filling, and very tasty. My recipe has three simple, whole food ingredients.  Crepes make a great breakfast, lunch, snack, or light dinner. We love crepes! (And grapes. But as I said before, we’re talking about crepes, not grapes. Okedokee.)

Quick and Easy Crepes (and 8-Piece Pyrex Bowl Set With Lids Only $13.49!!)
  • 6 eggs
  • 3 Tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 100% fruit jelly
  1. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and cream until well combined.
  2. Pour about ¼ cup of mixture into a well greased, hot skillet.
  3. I find that medium/high heat works best.
  4. Cook the crepe until it begins to bubble and thicken, then flip it to cook the reverse side until lightly browned.
  5. Remove from heat.
  6. Spread a little jelly on one flat side of the crepe, roll it up, and serve.
  7. Repeat process until all crepes have been cooked.
  8. Makes about 10 small crepes.

I usually double or triple this recipe to fill my family. Yes, sometimes we actually go through 18 eggs in one sitting. And sometimes we also eat grapes. But not usually at the same time as crepes. Although I should totally do that sometime – just to throw everyone off. Hmmm….

What’s your favorite kind of crepe filling?

    Usually we do cream cheese and strawberries, but last time we had some nutella and cream cheese and that was really good.


    Laura Reply:

    Mmm, yes! Cream cheese and fresh fruit is awesome in these. :)


  2. Sheila H. says

    We love crepes! Each boy wants a different filling: strawberry jam, bananas and honey, chocolate peanut butter. Your recipe looks so easy, but I don’t know if I could use 18 eggs in one sitting without crying.


    Laura Reply:

    Yes, 18 eggs at once is a lot. :) But it’s still cheaper than bacon or sausage, so if it fills my family, I’ll go with it. I think once my boys are all out of the house, I’ll be shocked at how few groceries Matt and I eat by ourselves. :)

    Actually, traditional crepe recipes use only 2 or 3 eggs, plus milk, flour, etc. I have been meaning to introduce crepes to my girls this summer. I plan to serve them with garden fresh strawberries and whipped cream like we had growing up. I have never made them with whole wheat flour, but there is a first time for everything.


  3. Barbara says

    Oh yum! I can’t wait to try these! I’ll be picking up some heavy cream while I’m in town today! I think my family is going to flip for these! THANK YOU :-)


  4. Janette says

    I am wondering if you could use whole milk and some coconut oil in place of the whippin cream? If so, what would the ratio be do you think? I would like to have an easy quick recipe like this compared to the one I have that uses milk and flour too. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    Wheat free-Yay!! I usually feed wheat to my kids but I can enjoy these, too :) My kids grew up on Swedish pancakes and have been begging for them(instead of loving my German Pancakes weekly using oats instead of wheat). These should pass for Swedish Pancakes. They will be thrilled. Thanks.

    My crepe recipe is more like a thin pancake- your recipe is basically what I do for omelets, only I add salt, pepper and garlic powder. (And then I would fill those with spinach, tomatoes, mushrooms and a bit of bacon.)

    I love filling crepes with fruit and cream, sometimes some cream cheese or mascarpone if I feel indulgent. If you buy them at a creperies, they are made on a special crepe pan and are 18 inches in diameter. They literally take seconds to cook, and then they add your choice of fruit and fold them up just so. So good- some of the best things you will ever eat.


  7. Rebecca says

    Taken originally from a GAPS recipe, we blend together the eggs with bananas and cinnamon. It makes them nice and thin and soft and not quite as much like an omelet and then top and fold with sour cream.
    (2-3 bananas for 6-8 eggs)


  8. Barbara says

    So simple, yet I didn’t think to do this! My daughter made these this morning and we rolled them up with whipped cream and strawberries. I love breakfast foods that aren’t full of carbs – – that just makes me want to go back to sleep! Thanks again! Next time I’m going to try rolling up veggies & sour cream inside of them :-)


  9. Allison Morrison says

    Our strawberry patch has yeilded us oodles of berries :) I’m thinking these would be awesome with strawberries and cream cheese…with fresh whipped cream on top. My people have to have bacon or sausage, so I’ll be adding that also. I’m thinking crepes, it’s what’s for dinner!


  10. Sarah Nicholson says

    I’m so happy I came across this post! We always have pancakes for breakfast on Saturdays, but I didn’t plan ahead well enough this week and am currently out of flour with no more cash in this week’s budget! I love crepes, but they always seemed kind of tricky to make. This recipe sounds perfect as I currently have quite a few eggs AND some leftover heavy cream! Add the fruit and cream cheese I just got, and this is the perfect breakfast without going over budget. I think I might even try adding bananas and cinnamon like Rebecca said. That sounds yummy. :)


  11. Karen says

    I couldn’t help but laugh at the grape conversation and how willing your boy was to eat only grapes for breakfast – just was concerned if he’d be full. I love how he trusted your ‘grape’ meal selection just doubted the quantity! What a joy!


    Karen Reply:

    Oops! Reading it over – he did question your meal choice but still I wonder what my kids perception of our whole food journey will be when their older. They might recall some dinners seeming like just grapes compared to the processed foods of others. But sometimes just grapes would be the best choice. So yummy! Bet he was glad when you clarified they were crepes though. We used to often eat them for dinner with savory fillings as a quick meal. Thanks for the reminder!


  12. Tiffany says

    This recipe is just like my recipe for omelets (or scrambled eggs if I stir them during cooking). I can’t imagine putting jelly on my scrambled eggs. :(

    My crepe recipe is more like pancakes than eggs — like really thin pancake batter. We wrap our crepes around a banana and drizzle with a little nutella. We also make a more savory version with peppers, caramelized onions, sausage, and cheese.


  13. Kelly says

    Love the idea of such a simple recipe, we usually do the more traditional crepe recipe with flour, butter, etc. This sounds good!

    We usually top with strawberries/bananas/whipped cream/syrup (whatever we have on hand), but I also LOVE savory crepes… most recently made a chicken pot pie filling and put inside & baked (almost like enchiladas).


  14. Melissa says

    These were delicious and EASY! Thank you! My 7-year-old and I had the same conversation this morning:

    Daughter: What’s for breakfast?
    Me: Crepes.
    Daughter: Grapes? Really?
    Me: Hahahaha – No, honey C-C-Crepes… :)


  15. Tara says

    I made these today for breakfast. It took literally 19 minutes from pulling out all the ingredients to plating. Amazing! We made your cream cheese filling and sweetened it with honey and a tiny bit of unsweetened cocoa powder. So decadent for being healthy and sugar free!! We also used the sliced strawberries inside and on top, drizzled with a little more honey. Holy moly were these delicious!! I’m so happy with how easy these were to make. Thank you for another winner recipe!!


  16. Janine says

    Because these are more eggy and less cakey, I would prefer a savory filling like baccon, cream chees and green chilis or something. HMMM, may b on to something there!
