Our gingerbread crepes include a generous helping of molasses, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg, the perfect mix of sweetness and spice.

Ingredients for Crepes:

  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1¾ cups skim milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon of molasses
  • ½ tsp of vanilla
  • ½ tsp of ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp of ground ginger
  • ⅛ tsp of allspice
  • pinch of salt

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

  • 1 tbsp of maple syrup
  • 1 tsp of lemon zest

After your crepes are made, combine the ingredients above for the topping. Stir 2-3 crepes per person with a generous dollop of maple lemon cream and serve immediately.
