  • 4 cups water room temperature
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons caster sugar
  • 1 cup oil
  • 4 teaspoons white vinegar
  • 8 eggs
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder


  • Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl, whisking well to ensure there are no lumps. Allow to stand for 15 minutes covered.
  • When you are ready to make the crepes, mix the batter again and if it’s too thick, add a bit more water. It needs to be quite thin, only a little thicker than pouring/heavy cream. You’ll see if you make the first few if the batter is too thick, the crepes need to be very thin and almost lace-like.
  • Heat the pan over medium heat. Brush with oil or melted butter and wipe out with a paper towel. You don't want the crepes to fry, the oil just acts as non-stick.
  • Add ladle-fulls of the batter to the pan and allow to cook before flipping. Keep the crepes warm on a plate set over a pot of simmering water.
  • When you're ready to serve, fill with your choice of filling.
