French Crêpes

My days in London nearing to an end, I decided to treat the family to some delicious French Crêpes. We love crêpes, when we were kids, mom would make them for our birthday parties and sometimes even randomly, which always led to us being on sugar highs. French people even have a crêpe day - the Chandeleur. It is so much fun. Anyhow tonight wasn't a special occasion, it was fairly random, I was bored of all the stupidities that were showing on TV and thus decided to cook up a storm, or well crêpes. They were delicious and a huge success! I used Cyril Lignac's recipe and made a few changes. They turned out perfect, with the perfect cook circles.


  • 250g of flour
  • 80g of caster sugar
  • 50cl of milk
  • 2 tablespoons of oil
  • A pinch of salt
  • 3 eggs
  • Butter or oil for the pan
  • 1 tablespoon of rum (it will make such a huge difference!)
  1. In a bowl, whip up the eggs with a fork - just like when you do an omelette
  2. In your mixer, put the flour and the salt and add half of the milk. 
  3. Once this is mixed, add your eggs, sugar, rum and oil. 
  4. You will obtain a liquid dough, if you find it is not liquid enough, add more milk. 
  5. In a hot pan, put a bit of butter or oil to grease the pan. Then, pour a 1/4cup of the batter in the pan and cook on one side until the sides can be removed and flip the crêpe to cook the rest. 
  6. Work through the entire batter and then put the crêpes on a plate. Either eat immediately or warm them up by putting them in the oven at 50 degrees until ready to be consumed. 
  7. Enjoy!

* You can put choc chips in the batter if you want.
* Eat with sugar on top - DELICIOUS
* Some put nutella and banana pieces on top... extra yummy!
