About this Recipe

Crepes are really easy to make at home - and are great for brunch! Something a bit out of the ordinary, without a lot extra fuss.


1 cup flour
2 cups milk
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
2 tbsp melted butter
3 eggs + 2 eggs (optional)
several slices of chopped or sliced ham
1 bunch of fresh spinach, wilted and chopped finely
1 cup grated swiss or gruyere (more or less to taste)
dijon and / or honey mustard for condiments
a few tbsps real maple syrup
a small piece of cold butter


Preheat oven to 250 degrees if you would like to serve crepes all at once.

For the crepes:

Sift the flour and salt together and sugar together.
Set aside.

In another bowl, with electric hand mixer, beat together three eggs and two cups of milk.

Once mixed, and two tbsps. of melted butter and beat for a few seconds more.

Heat up frying pan.

Quickly rub cold butter over the pan in order to lightly grease it.

Once hot, add 2-4 tbsps. of batter and swirl pan so that that the batter spreads the circumference of the pan.

Heat a couple of minutes until the batter cooks and shakes loose from the pan. At this stage, the crepe is ready to flip.

Flip the crepe. At this stage, if desired, add some of the extra egg mixture to make a more hearty crepe. Swirl it around so it spreads over the crepe and let it cook for a few seconds. Then add the toppings. Sliced ham, wilted chopped spinach, grated swiss or gruyere cheese, and a few drops of real maple syrup.

Close sides of crepe and let cook for a minute and then turn over again for a bit more.

Transfer crepe to warm oven and start again for next crepe.

Serve on a plate with a side salad, and with honey mustard or dijon as condiments.
