Basic Crepe Batter with Herbs

Use this basic crepe batter flavored with your choice of fresh herbs to make the perfect crepe for all of your savory or dinner crepe fillings. We particularly recommend it for our Turkey Pot Pie Crepes or our Beef Burgundy Crepes. Thyme or rosemary would be delicious additions.


  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1¼ cups skim milk
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ teaspoon of salt
  • 1 tbsp of your choice of fresh thyme or rosemary, chopped

Combine all ingredients into a blender and mix until well-blended. You may also combine them by hand. If combining by hand, mix the eggs and milk separately and combine slowly with the dry ingredients. Mix in the melted butter last. Important: Refrigerate the batter for at least 30 minutes. This gives the batter the opportunity to rest and fully come together. 

Yield: 10 8-inch crepes
