You may think I just want to kill your diet plans? Mmmh I am no such a person! And really is not that rich. I should have called this recipe rich-er crepes because I am just adding a bit of sour cream to a basic crepes batter...oh and a bit of yummy vanilla sugar...and full fat milk.

  • 250g flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 50 g sour cream
  • 500ml full fat milk
  • 1 sachet of vanilla sugar or 2 tbs home made vanilla sugar
  • a pinch of salt


  1. In a small bowl or recipient, beat your eggs and the sour cream into a smooth omelette.
  2.  In a separate bigger bowl, mix the flour, the vanilla sugar and a pinch of salt together. Dig a hole in the middle with your whisk and pour half of the milk in. Mix well until the flour has completely absorbed the milk.
  3. Add in the beaten eggs and the rest of the milk. Mix until the batter becomes smooth.
  4. Wrap the bowl with cellophane and let it rest in the fridge for at least 1/2hour.

Cooking the crepes

  1. Place your pan on the stove and set it to medium high heat. 
  2. Add 1tbs of vegetable oil. Using a kitchen paper, gently rub the oil all over the pan.
  3. When the pan is hot enough, pour a ladle of batter at 10 o'clock tilting the pan in a circular motion to cover the whole surface. If you see extra batter on the surface, make sure to adjust your quantity of batter for your next crepe. Otherwise, your crepe will be too thick and heavy.
  4. Put the pan back on the heat and observe the edges of the crepe. When it starts browning, you can flip it on the other side. 
  5. You can flip your crepes in different ways. You can use a fork to lift the edge and use your fingers to grab and flip it over. Or use a flat spatula. If you feel like having a little fun, try flipping it by holding your pan with your two hands, slide the crepes to the furthest edge from you and lift the pan upwards and towards you. It will take several attempts before you can flip it like this without making any damage to your crepe! 
  6. The other side needs around 20 seconds to brown. A visual check is if you can see small brownish dots. If so, then you crêpe is ready. Repeat the procedure.
