Equipment Needed

  • 10" non-stick skillet


  • ½ cup (125 g) sourdough starter discard
  • 3 tablespoons (42 g) melted butter (dairy or plant-based)
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup (60 g) all-purpose flour (see notes)
  • ¾ cup (183 g) milk (dairy or plant-based)
  • 2 tablespoons (30 g) water
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar (optional, for sweet crepes)
  • 1 tablespoon butter or cooking oil for skillet


  • Whisk the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Let rest for 1 hour in the fridge.
  • Heat a lightly greased, non-stick skillet over medium heat.
  • Pour ¼ cup of the batter into the skillet and tilt the skillet in a circular motion to distribute the batter into a thin, even layer. Cook until the sides of the batter start to fold back from the skillet and the bottom starts to turn golden brown. About 60-90 seconds.
  • Gently turn the crepe over using a large spatula. Cook on the second side for 30-60 seconds or until golden brown. Repeat with remaining batter. Keep the crepes warm after they cook by stacking them on a baking sheet in a preheated 350°F (176°C) oven until ready to serve.


  • If using whole wheat flour, more liquid may be needed to thin the batter. Add a tablespoon at a time, after it has rested "if needed" to get correct consistency. It should be very thin.
  • Store crepes stacked between layers of parchment or wax paper, wrapped tightly in plastic wrap or freezer bag. Keep in the fridge for up to 7 days or in freezer for up to 2 months.
  • Thaw in fridge before reheating in a skillet over medium heat.
