Dessert Crepe Recipe

crepe filled with coconut cream

This basic sweet crepe recipe is the first step to creating the perfect dessert crepe. 

Fill it with your favorite dessert crepes, including crepes suzette and fruit fillings.

Or, keep it simple and fill with strawberries and our chocolate sauce recipe.

Whatever you do, don't forget the garnish!


  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1¾ cups skim milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons orange liqueur
  • pinch of salt

Yield: 24 6-inch crepes (8" pan) or 18 8-inch crepes (10" pan) 

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. 

Use this dessert crepe recipe as the basis for all your sweet crepe fillings.
